View Inventory Learn More


If you’re on the hunt for an affordable, fuel-efficient, sporty compact, then both the 2018 Volkswagen Golf and the 2018 Toyota Yaris are prime options. The Volkswagen Golf has a better bumper to bumper limited warranty, more cargo space, and is equipped for a sportier drive. Read about specific wins or losses below!


Let’s face it, Indio drivers need room for groceries or backseat passengers. While both the Yaris and Golf offer 60/40 split folding rear seats, the Golf triumphs with 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space. The Yaris only maxes out at 15.6 cubic feet. The Yaris also makes you pay more for five door configurations, however, since its base model only offers 3 doors. All Golf trims let you easily pile in up to five passengers.


It’s true: The Yaris does provide slightly better fuel economy with its EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway, in comparison to the EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway of the Volkswagen Golf. Those two mpgs don’t go to waste though, the Golf has stellar performance features and technology to make up for it, including:

  • 1.8L TSI®, 16-valve, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine
  • Available 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport modes.

The Yaris simply can’t compete. It only has:

  • 1.5L 4-cylinder engine
  • Available four-speed manual transmission

The fun you’ll have in the Golf is worth passing up the Yaris’ minor fuel economy win.


We know the Golf costs a little more than the Yaris, but you’ll drive around Cathedral City with an added peace of mind. The Golf has a 6-year/72,000 mile, bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, and thus creates more value and savings down the road. The Yaris, on the other hand, offers only a 3-year/36,000 mile limited warranty, meaning costly repairs will be on your dime.

Keep Comparing

The Golf keeps finding ways to impress, so compare it to the Hyundai Veloster, the Volkswagen Passat, or the Golf GTI next. If you’ve already decided you want a Volkswagen Golf, apply for financing online!
