At Alexandria Volkswagen, we want to make sure you drive home in the vehicle that suits your needs best!

Volkswagen Golf Fuel MPG and Engine Options

The 2019 Golf comes in two trims, S (starting MSRP $21,845*) and SE (MSRP $24,145*) — both of which are powered by the same turbocharged, 1.9L four-cylinder engine. As a result, both score the same on the Environmental Protection Agency’s official fuel economy performance ratings:

  • EPA-estimated 29 city MPG
  • EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG
  • EPA-estimated 32 combined MPG
  • 147 HP
  • 184 lb-ft of torque

Put another way, this means you’ll be able to drive the 2019 Golf on 382.8 miles of Alexandria roads, and 488.4 miles on the highways between Washington DC and Springfield before needing more fuel. This smart little hatchback’s fuel tank capacity is 13.2 gallons.

The Electric Option: 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf

If you want max efficiency on the Alexandria roads, go electric. The 2019 e-Golf — the VW electric hatchback — has a starting MSRP of $31,895* and gets an EPA-estimated combined MPG of 119. And with specs like the following, choosing the e-Golf doesn’t mean compromising on performance:

  • EPA-estimated 126 city MPG
  • EPA-estimated 111 highway MPG
  • 134 HP
  • 214 lb-ft of torque

You’ll also enjoy DC Fast Charging capabilities at fast-charging stations around Alexandria or on the Washington DC roads.
