Default America, This is Your All-New 2015 VW Golf and Golf GTI!

Carscoop: http://www.carscoops.com/2013/03/ame...w-2015-vw.html















Quote:
The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf and its GTI performance version are making their North American debut at the New York International Auto Show today. Set to hit U.S. dealerships early next year as a 2015 model, the new Golf will be available with three engines, just like the current sixth-generation model sold in the U.S.
As you probably have already noticed, the US-spec Golf looks just like its European version, both inside and out, so we’ll focus on technical aspects in this article.

The big news is that the 2015 Golf’s entry-level model will be powered by a four-cylinder 1.8-liter turbocharged engine instead of the 2.5-liter five-cylinder unit. With 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque, this new engine made in Silao, Mexico, offers the same power as the outgoing unit and 7 more lb-ft (9.5 Nm) of torque, delivered at lower revs. Mated to manual or automatic transmissions, its biggest advantage is said to be fuel economy, although VW didn’t talk numbers.

The next model in the 2015 Golf range will be the TDI Clean Diesel, powered by a four-cylinder common-rail 2.0-liter diesel unit with direct-injection. Rated at 150 horsepower (10 hp more than the outgoing model) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque, the new TDI Clean Diesel shares only the bore spacing with the previous engine, with extensive changes made to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Again, no fuel economy figures were provided for this engine, but VW said the new TDI model will have a standard six-speed manual gearbox and an optional DSG dual-clutch transmission.

Finally, the top of the range GTI model will be powered by an upgraded version of the EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged TSI engine, also made in Mexico and expected to develop around 210 hp and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque (final figures not yet available). A manual six-speed box will be offered as standard, with an automatic DSG transmission available as an option. The European Performance Pack is expected to be offered in the US during the GTI’s lifecycle.

All versions of the new Golf have the XDS electronic differential lock that improves handling and traction. The 2015 VW Golf for North America will be built at the German automaker's Puebla plant in Mexico.

Love the GTI, curious at how hard core the next R will be. Also I am very jealous of that center stack, as it is much better than the one on my car.

It looks like they didn't water down that interior. Nice.

That's intriguing. I hope to see that 6-speed offered standard on everything up to the top of the line.

No GTi news here. Same thing (mostly) as the Euro-spec GTi. I hope we don't get shafted on the "track pack" stuff. Last I saw on VWVortex the site owner was pressing to get the "track pack" equipment (230hp, LSD, etc.) as the standard GTi in the US. With the money they save from moving production to mexico (likr 4K I think they said), they can add in the track-pack stuff and keep the same (msotly) price for the US.

I might end up in a GTD... Loved the TDI but wanted a bit more sportiness.

I'm really interested in this too, but I read somewhere the engine would likely be unchanged from the normal TDI. That would be a bummer.

What is the typical lag between new Golf model and Golf R availability?

It is generally between 3 and 4 years between R releases.

They don't do much to progress the styling of their cars. Looks the same to me.

Very nice. I'm glad they increased the size of the screen. I test drove an R and for $37K the screen was bargain basement.

It is pretty small compared to most.. I cannot lie about that. It works, but the same car in Europe gets a much nicer setup.

The looks are more evolutionary than revolutionary but the Golf has always retained the same essential shape as the original car like most Porsches. It's hard to imagine any other cars in the price range offering up an interior even close.

What good is a nice interior when the car is at the dealership for service more often than not?
