Ahhh yeah. We have heard teases about the 2015 VW Golf but now we’ll get to see it in person later this month. Supposedly this Golf is THE polished little automotive gem we have all been waiting for, even though it is hecho en Mexico and not the Vogtland. No word yet about an R edition, but we’ll be licking our chops. We are also waiting to see what kind of infotainment choices will be available, as typically VW has used the Golf as a springboard for technology for the younger generation. After all, the last Golf GTi was marketed through a video game app marketing promotion.
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf is bigger inside and out, lighter, more fuel efficient, and safer than the vehicle it replaces.
The seventh-generation Golf is the first Volkswagen to use the new MQB components matrix and will offer new safety features-such as collision avoidance and lane departure systems-as well as new engines and infotainment options.
At the New York International Auto Show, Volkswagen is debuting all three of the Golf versions that will go on sale next year: the entry-level TSI model; the thrifty TDI Clean Diesel; and the sporty GTI. The TSI and GTI use new versions of the EA888 turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine, while the TDI gets the new EA288 diesel engine.
The 2015 Golf will go on sale in the first half of 2014 and will be built at Volkswagen’s Puebla, Mexico, factory.
