Volkswagen has unveiled the new generation Golf 7, just weeks before the Paris Motor Show. Walter da Silva, Design Director of the German manufacturer, has designed the silhouette. If the result seems more up to date, we must admit that Volkswagen has always shown a certain conservatism when comes the time to freshen up a model. Moreover, the Golf 7 differs from its predecessor because of its architecture. Indeed, the German group is moving forward with the MQB platform which will be the basis for many models like Audi, Seat and Skoda.
According to the information we obtained, the new 2014 Volkswagen Golf 7 will be available with all-wheel drive and the adaptive suspension option. The German automaker has not released specifications for North America, but it seems that the car will be equipped with the available 1.4-liter small block turbo. According to some sources, Volkswagen could consider this engine even on this side of the Atlantic. Fuel consumption would be about 1.5 gallon per 60 miles.
While the decision is not yet taken, everything indicates that the new 7th generation Volkswagen Golf would possibly be produced in Puebla, Mexico, alongside the Beetle and Jetta models.
We speak of models available on the North American markets. This would be a return to Mexico for Golf, although some versions of Generation I, II and III were made this industrial complex.
