Since the last Paris Motor Show has been released, the sixth-generation Golf has always been that when the domestic auto loop a hot topic in the second half of last year, FAW-Volkswagen, "the semi-official" that the new generation Golf will be held this year (2009) in Changchun production as Volkswagen global market one of the hottest hatchback compact-class sedan, a new generation of golf's domestic process also affects the nerves of many people.
Not long ago, Sohu car was a group of Chinese-made new-generation Golf of the test vehicle in the domestic spy photos, spy Zhao from the test vehicle situation, the car should be a new generation of golf before the mass production of engineering test vehicle or test load.
Although the former face and the rear part of the camouflage, but not on a new generation of FAW-Volkswagen Golf body side any camouflage, this also gives us a very easy to determine which is the forthcoming new generation of Chinese-made golf.
Tough the waistline and the classic lateral hatchback body style is a new generation of golf return to the traditional style of an important sign, the rearview mirror is also increased in recent years the popular turn signal. And the Five Dynasties golf compared to the sixth generation of Golf changes in appearance mainly concentrated on the former face and taillights.
China-made new-generation Golf's interior design has also been caught Sohu car, although not very clear according to spy, but the dual chrome-plated barrel and concise dashboard 3 steering wheel is still eye-catching, black sports-style interior is Pina reverie together. Console air-conditioning outlet and use a similar chrome design, the author made a new generation of the next Golf will be introduced except on the traditional deep under shallow interior color, the spy according to the black interior of this pure sports models are expected to synchronize volume production. Another interior details are also a cause for concern, that is, this test car's steering wheel does not have any more energy button, which also runs counter to current trends, this also means that the next version of the new low with the configuration of Golf will be quite simple.
FAW-Volkswagen China-made new-generation Golf will be the size and overseas versions of the same, a new generation of golf 4199mm × 1779mm × 1479mm of measurements in the domestic compact-class hatchback small car belonged to the middle level, despite its 2578mm wheelbase than the four generations Domestic Golf models (wheelbase 2511mm) has increased, but only in the domestic compact-class car the middle class. Due to the positioning of a new generation of golf for young people, so FAW-Volkswagen has not made a new generation of golf for longer wheelbase. Frankly speaking, China-made new-generation Golf 2578mm wheelbase of the majority of consumers have reached an acceptable level.
Power, made the new generation Golf will no longer be used outmoded mass 2.0 liters engine, instead of using the displacement of lower fuel economy 1.4TSI better engines, the engine reached the maximum output power 98kw, and the previous turbo different engine supercharger, the new engine 1.4TSI turn around in 2000 will be close to peak torque. 1.4TSI engine with a new generation of golf will become a high-end models of domestic golf. Expected before the end of 2010, FAW-Volkswagen will also be made with the introduction of 7-speed dual-clutch transmission 1.4TSI models, this model will also be made with a new generation of golf's top dynamic models.
