After selling some 26 million copies in Europe, a new and heavily revised 6th-generation Golf is expected in Europe later this year.
Improved in every area, the new car will be styled with a look that points towards Volkswagen's future design language
while boasting new powertrain technology, safety and comfort for its owners.
Automatic cruise control will be available, as will active chassis control, park steering assist and a full suite of standard safety features. VW says this is the most exquisitely assembled, quietest and high-tech Golf to date, too.
"This sixth generation of Golf cars will completely redefine the quality and comfort level of its class over broad categories, offering more customer value than ever before", said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board at Volkswagen AG.
Power will come from a selection of gas or diesel engines, including one of two TDI powerplants and an innovative four-cylinder gas engine that boasts performance and mileage enhancements by using both a turbocharger and a supercharger. The engines will be available mated to a 6 or 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox
, depending on the application.
European customers can expect to see the new Golf on dealer lots this fall.
