1995 Volkswagen Golf Overview

The Volkswagen Golf got a power boost in 1995 thanks to the new GTI VR6 trim package, which featured a 2.8-liter, 172-hp V6 engine linked to a five-speed manual transmission. The GTI VR6 joined the 2- and 4-door GL hatchback versions, which have long been the backbone of the Golf lineup, as well as the new entry-level Golf City and the mid-level Golf Celebration trim packages. They were powered by a 115-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that was a holdover from the previous year.

Standard features for the Golf included power disc brakes, power door locks, power steering, a rear window defroster and rear window wiper, dual airbags, child safety locks, rear shoulder seatbelts, an anti-theft alarm system, and an AM/FM/cassette audio system.

The Golf's handling, roominess, and power were cited as positive points by drivers, but some also noted that their cars needed frequent repairs, which could be expensive. A number of drivers also decried the lack of a glovebox.
