Volkswagen has completed the sales of the seventh-generation Golf hatchback in Russia. As the press service of the brand informed “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the dealers sold the last cars in December of the previous year. Meanwhile, this does not mean that Golf completely said goodbye to our country. Volkswagen plans to bring the eighth generation of the model to Russia, but the terms of its appearance is not called.

According to preliminary information, the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf hatchback will be available in Russia with two gasoline engines that will work exclusively with automatic transmissions. Thus, the DSG robotic transmission for the model in the Russian market will be not provided. So, the 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated engine with 110 horsepower, which will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, will enter the line of engines of the new Golf. These engines are produced at an enterprise in Kaluga, from where they will be sent to German Wolfsburg and installed on cars for Russia there. As an alternative, the automaker will offer a 1.4-liter “turbo-four” with a capacity of 150 hp, for which an 8-band automatic transmission is adapted.

Recall Volkswagen Golf of eighth generation was introduced at the end of October of 2019. The car, built on an upgraded version of the modular platform MQB, has become a little more than its predecessor. The overall length of the hatchback is 4284 mm, width - 1800 mm, and height - 1456 mm. The wheelbase remains the same - 2636 mm. In the cabin of the new “Golf” there are minimum of buttons and mechanical switches: most functions can be controlled using a large touchscreen of the 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. Recall that the return of the Golf hatchback to the Russian market took place in September of 2018. According to the results of the previous year, about 900 customers made a choice in favor of this model.
