2014 Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Fuel economy as a reason to buy a 292-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Volkswagen Golf R, really? Well, among cars with about 300 horsepower the Golf R's EPA ratings of 23 MPG city and 30 MPG highway rank near the top. Want the manual transmission? It does one MPG worse in the city, but one MPG better on the highway. In comparison, the Subaru WRX STI is a gas guzzler, with EPA ratings of 17 MPG city and 23 MPG highway. On the other hand, the Golf R isn't quite as efficient as the GTI (25/33 with the DSG, 25/34 with the manual). see full Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI review

2013 4dr Hatch turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
The Golf TDI easily beats the Honda in fuel economy, while giving up little in performance. We just took at trip in the TDI and averaged 48.8mpg. The Honda V6 is very efficient, but can't compare. see full Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI review
2013 4dr Hatch turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
Hard to argue with 40+ miles per gallon (and we are getting better than that on some tanks). Just took at 1500 mile road trip and averaged 50.8mpg. Diesel is currently cheaper than premium too. The Golf R is EPA rated for 24mpg but less if driven hard. Update: after 3 months 5,000mi getting 44 mpg combined. see full Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI review

2013 4dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
In this day and age, this particular engine should have been able to have an overall fuel consumption figure of 28 to 30 mpg rather than 24 to 25 mpg combined. (its geared more towards performance rather than economy). The car is definitely no slouch, and acceleration is quite good. But in terms of fuel economy these days, having your cake and eating it too is a given isn't it? One saving grace is that this is VW's most reliable engine, so being able to drive a German engineered affordable substantial vehicle is a worthy trade off. At least, that's the excuse i used. see full Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI review
