Volkswagen Unloads Full Details and Pics of Next-Gen Golf

posted by on 4 September 2012 in Automotive News

Volkswagen released photos and full details of the next-generation Golf (Golf 7) today. The new car will be longer, lower and lighter than the current model, giving it leaner-looking proportions than it hasn’t had since the Nineties.

The technology package, at least for Europe, will be quite extensive, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, city emergency braking and traffic sign detection, among many others. We probably won’t get all of that, especially considering Golf 7s for the US will be built in Puebla, Mexico. Power options remain unkown at this time as well, but our colleagues at VWvortex.com suggest a 1.8TFSI four-cylinder is likely.

You can read the full details there, as well as a very detailed technical briefing on the technology that is going into this most important model for Volkswagen throughout the world.

The Golf 7 will debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month, and we hear the GTI version may be on the stand alongside it.
