Volkswagen gives the Golf VII three new engines and the 4Motion system
The Volkswagen Golf VII is a happy camper these days. The Wolfsburg carmaker announced this week that the Golf VII will be available with three new engines. First off, there’s the 1.2-liter TSI BlueMotion that outputs 105 HP – 77 kW, second there’s the 1.4-liter TSI BlueMotion with 122 HP – 90 kW, and last, the same 1.4-liter TSI engine but with 140 HP – 103 kW. As a bonus, the Golf VII received the active cylinder management (ACM) system on all three engines. The transmission on these babies can be either a six-speed manual or to a seven-speed DSG. For the moment, there’s nothing on the fuel-efficiency and emissions figures yet.
Volkswagen has one more trick up its sleeve for the Golf VII. The famous 4Motion all-wheel drive system will be available for the 1.6-liter TDI BlueMotion and the 2.0-liter TDI BlueMotion versions, connected to the aforementioned manual gearbox. Also, the Comfortline and Highline versions of the new Golf can be fitted with the driver assistance pack that adds goodies such as ACC adaptive cruise control, bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs, anti-theft warning system “Plus” and others as well.
