About Golf

1998 yielded a few changes for the Golf, with the Jazz and Trek models being discontinued and the coveted Wolfsburg racing edition being offered. Additionally, remote entry and side-impact airbags were now offered as options. With two generations of Golf on sale for 1999, wise buyers opted for the fourth-generation model, which featured a sleeker body style and more engine options. A new 150 hp engine for the GLS, standard in-dash CD player and updates to all trim levels rounded out the changes for 2000.

 

Updated wheel designs, new cup holders and side marker lights and steering wheel controls were the only news for 2001. The 1.8T was discontinued for 2002, with a CD player being added as a standard feature in the base model and a new four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty being offered. Model years 2003-2005 featured only updates to the upper trim levels and optional packages. The two-door model was eliminated for 2006 with updates to the upper trims and a new Golf called the Rabbit on the way for later in the year.

 

Following the late-year redesign, there were no major updates for model years 2007-2010, with exception to options and upper trim level tweaks. 2011 didn’t yield anything new, nor did 2012 or 2013. A refreshed 2014 model offered a few new trim levels. Otherwise everything was the same as usual.
