Have you ever owned a hatchback? If you're not familiar with this body style, you should know that a hatchback combines the benefits of a sedan and SUV into one versatile vehicle design. A hatchback includes more rear cargo capacity than a sedan while still getting respectable mileage ratings. If you want more storage than a car but don't want an SUV, you should get a hatchback. At Sisbarro Autoworld, Inc., serving Alamogordo, NM, we have the new Volkswagen Golf lineup. We're going to break down these VW hatchbacks by size so that you know which one to buy or lease.

Meet the New VW Golf Hatchbacks in Las Cruces

In the current Volkswagen lineup, there are three VW Golf models: VW Golf, VW Golf GTI, and VW Golf R. While they all look similar on the outside, each one differs in size. We're going to review the size stats of these hatchbacks before you book your VW test drive at Sisbarro Autoworld, Inc.

  • VW Golf: Known as the modern hatch, the VW Golf gets the best fuel economy out of the lineup: 36 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city. The five-seat compact vehicle includes 17.4 cubic-feet of cargo capacity behind its rear row. There are 38.4 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom. With the second row folded, the hatchback exposes 42.3 cubic-feet.
  • VW Golf GTI: Called the hot hatch; the VW Golf GTI radiates bold design and even bolder performance. Fuel economy drops slightly compared to the VW Golf: 32 mpg on the highway and 24 mpg in the city. The VW Golf GTI and VW Golf share the same standard cargo capacity of 17.4 cubic-feet and 42.3 cubic-feet in total. If you want sportier performance, we recommend the VW Golf GTI.
  • VW Golf R: Referred to as the performance hatch, the VW Golf R features the highest cargo capacity out of the three models. Behind the second row, you'll have 22.8 cubic-feet of storage space to use for luggage, sports gear, band equipment, or groceries. Stepping up performance does impact the hatchback's overall fuel economy ratings: 29 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city.
