The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Mk7 is here again


Finally, German carmaker Volkswagen finished with the media and the motor show presentations of their new generation Golf, the Mk7. They are now preparing to introduce it on the market and of course, the first one will be Germany. According to the carmaker the first examples of the seventh generation Golf, in both 3-door and 5-door styles will be available in their German showrooms starting November 10th. The week after that, the model will arrive on the European market. Unfortunately for the North American customers, VW did not reveal any information on the situation of the VW Mk7 on their market. Maybe they are waiting for the North American Motor Show to reveal more details on the sales launch. At the same event the Germans will also provide more info on the engine variants that will be available on this market. It is not all bad as this Motor Show is getting closer.



For the Europeans the situation is a little different. They will have the opportunity to choose between a wide pallet of new turbocharged diesel and petrol engines. All will be equipped with a stop / start system and battery regeneration, all offered as standard. The power produced will range between 84 horsepower and 148 horsepower. The new developments include a 1.4-liter TSI with Active Cylinder Technology which can deactivate two of the cylinders capable of generating 138 horsepower. This one uses 4.8 liters / 100 km. the ones interested in fuel economy above all, know that the new BlueMotion model powered by a 1.6-liter TDI diesel engine capable of producing 109 horsepower, is the most fuel efficient. It only needs 3.2 liters for 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 85 g/km. We can expect the production version of the VW Golf GTI next summer. This receives power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of generating 217 horsepower. Nothing is for sure, but the specialists might also launch an AWD R model after.
