Power comes from a 1.4-liter, turbocharged, 148 horsepower TSI engine and a liquid cooled, 8.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. Together they make 201 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
With a full tank and a full 3.5 hours of charge (from a home outlet), you're looking at a range of 584 miles (31 on electric only).
This heavier Golf (3,360-pounds) is a tad less nimble than its all-gas counterpart, especially when carrying a full load.
Build quality is standard VW good. Nice materials, solid construction, great capacity and visibility.
