The new generation of the Volkswagen Golf has been recently teased by the German based automaker ahead of its debut in Berlin on the 4th of September.
The all-new Volkswagen Golf 7 is riding on the MQB modular platform, the same one which made its debut on the new generation of the Audi A3 back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, and the same one which will also underpin more models made by VW or its brands. The carmaker says that thanks to the MQB platform, the new Golf 7 will save as much as 100 kg (220 pounds) from its total weight and, besides this, its size will increase and the fuel consumption will be improved by up to 26 percent compared to the outgoing version.
Details are limited on the 2013 Volkswagen Golf 7 but we know that the model will get a 1.2 liter TSI And a 1.4 liter TSI with Active Cylinder Management system, along with two diesels, the 1.6 TDI and the 2.0 TDI, which will also make their way under the hood of the new model. A 2.0 liter TSI unit will be offered too, in two versions, one for the GTI and the other one for the R. More details on the new Golf will be announced in Berlin on the 4th of September and then at the Paris Motor Show, where the model will be presented to the public.
