2017 Volkswagen Golf Thousand Oaks CA

For the pinnacle in hatchback engineering it’s hard to consider anything other than the 2017 Volkswagen Golf in Thousand Oaks CA and 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback. Both are more than capable of providing you with excellent fuel economy and performance under the hood, but for those looking for a little bit more space and punch off the line, the Golf holds a clear edge. Though it has a smaller (yet turbocharged) four-cylinder engine, you’re treated to greater torque output and incredible 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive, helping your drive to be one of the smoothest and most responsive on the road. Stepping inside, you’ll be face to face with ultra-comfortable leather stitched seating, a highly advanced infotainment system in VW Car-Net®, and a panoramic sunroof that allows you to get a first-rate glimpse as you zip through the vast world outside. Add that to the Golf’s 5-star NHTSA safety rating and it becomes a model of excellence that few other hatches on the market can lay claim to.
