WAKEFIELD, R.I., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As the hatchback segment has undergone its renaissance in recent years, the trend for many models has often been to sacrifice performance and comfort in an ongoing quest to preserve fuel economy. However, two iconic models have long sidestepped this notion, offering power and a spacious, welcoming interior while maintaining eye-popping fuel economy numbers. The 2015 VW Golf and 2015 VW GTI, both fully restyled for the new model year, are now available in the Providence area at Speedcraft VW, located nearby in Wakefield, R.I.
With over forty years of production under its belt, the seventh-generation 2015 VW Golf continues to be the standard bearer for the vehicle segment that it helped to create. Available in two compelling powertrains and with a wide array of customizable options, the Golf continues to dispel the notion that a hatchback must sacrifice style and performance in the name of fuel efficiency. And, with a thorough redesign that includes a more sloped front end to yield a confident silhouette, the 2015 Golf manages to recall its iconic past while making a bold push forward.
Also new to Speedcraft VW is the Golf's high-output sibling, the 2015 VW GTI. Powered by a 2.0-liter Turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering an energetic 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the GTI is uniquely suited to conquer the many winding roads in the area, all while achieving upwards of 35 highway mpg according to Environmental Protection Agency estimates. The debut of the 2015 VW GTI has been heralded from all corners of the auto industry well, receiving inclusion in Car & Driver magazine's list of the top cars available for under $30,000. And, as with the similarly styled Golf, the GTI is incredibly spacious, yielding a class-leading 52.7 cubic feet of cargo room with rear seats folded.
Both of these striking new hatchback models are now available at Speedcraft VW, New England's #1 online-rated Volkswagen dealer. Boasting a wide range of available services including a full automotive service department and a VW OEM Parts and Accessories eStore, the dealer encourages interested parties to visit the Providence-area dealership for further details. Speedcraft VW may also be contacted online at www.speedcraftvw.com, or by calling directly via telephone at 866-308-5703.
