2003 Volkswagen Golf - Price Quote

Visit Volkswagen for more information on the Volkswagen Golf.

Golf! This is Volkswagen's spunky hatchback designed for taking you and whatever you fancy, anywhere you want, and then some. A direct descendant of the Jetta, the 2003 Volkswagen Golf can be supercharged in several body/engine variations.

Available Models
Two- or four-door GL, or two-door GLS trims avail with a range of engines.

Interior Features
Cool standard features of the 2003 Volkswagen Golf include air conditioning, cruise control, tachometer, mirror control pad with joystick, handsome chrome ornamentation, eight-speaker cassette/in-dash CD stereo system, 60/40 split folding rear seat, and a height-adjustable telescoping steering column. Optional features consist of a 6-disc trunk-mounted CD changer, Monsoon sound system, and heatable front seats.

Exterior Features
The fun doesn't stop on the outside of the 2003 Volkswagen Golf. Standard inclusions consist of a roof-mounted amplified whip antenna, halogen headlamps with clear chip-resistant polycarbonate lenses, driver and passenger-side heatable power mirrors, and a programmable intermittent wipe feature.

For a start, the 2003 Volkswagen Golf comes with power-assisted ABS front vented disc and rear solid disc brakes. Under the hood, you can find two options for your perusal: a 1.9-litre 90 horsepower, 149 lb-ft torque, 4 cylinder in-line, turbo-charged direct injection diesel engine, OR a 2.0-litre 115 horsepower, 122 lb-ft torque, 4 cylinder in-line gas engine. Diesel fuel mileage rings in at an impressive 42/49 (city/hwy) mpg on the 5-speed manual transmission. Unleaded fuel mileage registers at 24/31 (city/hwy) mpg on the 5-speed manual.

Transmission choices consist of a 4-speed automatic with adaptive "fuzzy logic" shift points & shift lock, or 5-speed manual.

Safety and Security
Safety is never left to guess in any Volkswagen vehicle. Volkswagen prides itself in incorporating a plethora of standard safety and security features. For starters, there is an anti-theft vehicle alarm system for doors, hood, trunk lid, radio and starter, with warning LED in driver's door top sill and audible/visual de/activation verification. Volkswagen's Immobilizer theft deterrent system prevents the Golf from being started up if an unauthorized key is used. Also standard are anti-intrusion side-door beams, energy absorbing side impact door padding, and a restraint system including multiple airbags that will do everything but make your head spin.
