Volkswagen introduced a new Golf for Russia


Volkswagen introduced the eighth generation Golf hatchback, which was developed on an upgraded version of the MQB modular platform.

The new Golf received a matrix of LED optics in one of three options. The basic version of the model has eight diode elements and halogen turn signals; a version with 11 diodes stands a step higher. And the top-end IQ Light modification is adaptive matrix optics with 22 diodes, which can even turn off segments of the light beam so as not to blind oncoming drivers.

The new Golf was slightly increased in size: the car has become 3 cm longer and 1.5 cm wider than its predecessor. At the same time, the height decreased by 3.5 cm. Now the overall length of the hatchback is 4824 mm, width - 1800 mm, and height - 1456 mm. The wheelbase remains the same - 2636 mm.

In Russia, the new Golf will be delivered with two engines. The base will be a 1.6-liter aspirated power of 110 hp, which can be combined with both a manual gearbox and a 6-speed "automatic". And the older version will be with the previous 1.4-liter TSI turbo engine with 150 bhp, which will be paired exclusively with the 7-speed DSG robot. The new Golf has a minimum of buttons and mechanical switches. Most equipment can be controlled with a large touch screen media system.

In addition, the car received a digital dashboard, which is visually combined into a single unit with a display, as well as ambient lighting, which can change color. In the Russian market, the new Volkswagen Golf will appear in a year. The start of sales is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020, but the configuration and prices for the Russian market have not been formed yet. Recall that in the last year the Golf hatchback returned to the Russian market. According to the results of 9 months of 2019, 884 clients made a choice in favor of this model. Currently, the price of Volkswagen Golf starts at 1 million 429 thousand 900 rubles.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, at the end of March, Volkswagen Golf models were 45 years old. The first unit of the model, which later became the bestseller of the brand, was released on March 29th, 1974 at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg.

Since the start of production, customers from around the world have ordered a new Golf every 41 seconds - daily and without interruption. Thus, the average annual sales volume is about 780 thousand cars per year. And Volkswagen Golf's total sales reached 35 million cars.
