2017 Volkswagen Golf optimal tire pressure

March 20th, 2017 by

We all know the Volkswagen Golf as one of the world’s favorite hatchbacks, creating affinity with drivers who love its versatility and undying commitment to your satisfaction behind the wheel. However, it’s only able to perform so well due to its tires, which need to be inflated to the correct level for best performance. Today we’ll take you through the 2017 Volkswagen Golf optimal tire pressure!

2017 Volkswagen Golf Comfort and Standard tire levels
Before we begin, we should mention how important tire pressure is to your vehicle; keeping them at the right levels can help to significantly improve fuel economy and reduce wear on your suspension, two factors that are quite important to getting the most out of your Golf. Something unique to the 2017 Golf is that it provides two types of drive styles for you, all having to do with your tires’ inflation levels.

The first level available on the Golf, “Standard,” is the optimal tire pressure level you should be keeping all four of yours at: 37 psi. However, “Comfort” mode is also widely accepted by Golf drivers; it has a pressure level of 33 psi and is sought after by drivers who are looking for a smoother ride. However, keeping your tires underinflated like this can increase their rolling resistance, which can decrease efficiency and increase strain on your drivetrain. Either way, they’re both viable options for the type of experience you want on the road!
