The 2015 Volkswagen Golf will be larger, roomier, more fuel efficient, and safer than the outgoing vehicle it will replace. The seventh-generation Golf is the first Volkswagen model to employ the MQB components matrix. It will also feature new safety systems like collision avoidance and lane departure systems and will be powered by new engines.
It will also feature new infotainment options. Volkswagen is unveiling all three of the Golf versions that will be rolled out in 2014 -- the entry-level TSI model; the thrifty TDI Clean Diesel; and the sporty GTI – at the New York International Auto Show. The TSI and GTI models are powered by new variants of the EA888 turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine, while the TDI is powered by a new EA288 diesel engine.
The 2015 Golf, which will be rolled out in the first half of 2014, will be produced at Volkswagen's Puebla plant in Mexico. The New York International Auto Show will feature more than 60 other newly unveiled cars, trucks and concepts that the world's major carmakers have to offer.
