Now we showed you how the most likely future looks like the interior of Golf VII. What else new will offer the most popular car in Europe when it appears with the new generation at the end of 2012?
In the new Golf, VW will present three bodies at once wheelbases. Base will be a vehicle axle spacing 2630 mm, which will replace today's hatchback with a wheelbase 2578 mm. Jetta sedan and wagon Golf Variant will be a distance between the axes of 2680 mm and the longest version of 2790 mm will be the new Touran (at current distance is 2678 mm) and Touran XL, which is the only market China.
Most of the engines will be mounted on the new Golf is already known. Petrol will be 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI with a power of 63 to 220 kW. Turbodiesel engines 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI with output of 66 to 125 kW. The new Golf will wait any longer and 2.0 BiTDI with power 162 kW and maximum torque of 450 Nm.
To mechanical gearbox with 6 degrees will be added as an extra and transmission DSG, a first model with and we'll see robotic gearbox. Naturally there will be a 4x4 version (4Motion), which will see only the most powerful engines.
In 2013 will appear and electric version Blue-e-motion. For two years, from September 2012 will see the first hatchback Golf (premiere is planned for the Motor Show in Paris in 2012), and then a wagon version Golf Variant, Golf Plus, the new Touran, and the new Scirocco Tiguan, which will occur gradually thereafter.
New generations of the Jetta and Beetle models have appeared this year and the platform PQ35, so for their versions with MQB have to wait. As for the future of convertible Eos, yet nothing is known. Of great importance will be how success (or failure) will result in future Golf Cabrio.
