Volkswagen has recently announced its plans to produce the new Golf 7 generation in Puebla, Mexico, starting next year.
According to the German based automaker, the new Volkswagen Golf 7 will be produced in Puebla, Mexico, too and the model made locally will be sold on two continents, North and South America. The decision has been taken after VW has decided to increase market share in North America and go against its main competitors over there. The plan is to invest 5 billion USD in North American in the next three years and this plan includes the production of the Golf 7.
Besides the Volkswagen Golf 7, the carmaker is also producing the Beetle, the Jetta and the Golf 6 Estate in the Puebla facility. The Golf 7 will enter production in Mexico in the first quarter of 2014. As a quick reminder, the VW Golf 7 has made its public debut back in 2012, during the Paris Motor Show. The model is 4,255 mm long (+56 mm0, 2,637 mm wide (+59 mm), 1,452 mm tall (-28 mm) and the interior space for the front passengers has increased by 14 mm, while the rear legroom is plus 15 mm.
