As far as the Volkswagen Golf is concerned, its iteration for the 2017 model year will be receiving a whole load of important updates that should enable it to further its status as the carmaker’s most successful model to date. In fact, since VW launched the first generation of the Golf, around 33 million have been sold.
So, what can we expect from the 2017 version of the VW Golf? First, there are several design revisions including its new front and rear bumpers as well as full LED taillights. In addition, LED headlights have now replaced Xenon headlights for Golf and Golf Variant. The new 2017 VW Golf 7 (VII) Facelift now comes loaded – for the first time – with Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist while its Infotainment systems have received a redesign and now sport larger touchscreen displays.
For 2017 model year, the new VW Golf could now be equipped with the new 1.5-liter TSI Evo engine with 150 PS of output and Active Cylinder Management. In addition, the base version of the Golf GTI now produces 230 PS while the GTI Performance model delivers 245 PS. Moreover, a newly developed seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox will replace – albeit gradually -- six-speed DSG transmissions.
