Several weeks ago, a tipster stumbled across the web page for the 2010 Golf buried in Volkswagen's consumer website, giving us a preview of the some of the details of the U.S.-spec MK VI model. VW has now made that information official including pricing, options and EPA mileage numbers.

For 2010, U.S. Golf buyers will be able to choose from two engine options, the old 2.5-liter inline-five carried over from the MK V model and the 2.0-liter TDI that debuted last year in the Jetta. Gas engined Golfs have a starting tab of $17,490, and the better equipped TDI kicks off at $21,990. Why "better equipped," you ask? All TDI Golfs receive a new uplevel touch-screen audio system with Sirius satellite radio and mobile device interface. Diesels also get a special lowered sport suspension as standard fit. Unlike the 2009 Jetta TDI, DSG-equipped Golfs will also get steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

For 2010, Volkswagen has also managed to eek out improved EPA numbers,with the manual gas Golf getting a 22/30 mpg rating. The manual diesel reaches 30/41 mpg while the DSG diesel achieves 31/42 mpg - up 2 mpg from the 2009 Jetta.

TDI Golf is appealing. I have the brochure and i am loving the car. Sat in a 2010 GTI and the interior is amazing applied to this car.

Price on the TDI is a couple grand more than i would want it to be but i do understand the level of amenity in it. the sport suspension is a big help. a fun diesel?

New Golf i love it, is definitely high on my 'next car' list.

Reg, you and I may disagree on the Fit but we can agree on this.

With the sport suspension standard, I may just have to pay my local VW dealer a visit.
