    Volkswagen Readies A Golf Refresh

    Volkswagen's most important model readies itself for a refresh

    The Volkswagen Golf is one of the German automaker's most important vehicles - currently is the best-selling vehicle in Europe. To keep this title, the automaker is planning a refresh for 2017.

    According to Autocar, Volkswagen isn't making any major changes to the exterior. There will be reshaped bumpers and revised head and taillights. The big changes are inside as Volkswagen is planning to implement its own version of Audi's virtual cockpit - 12.5-inch to display gauges along with the ability to display a map. Higher-end Golfs will be available with a large 9.5-inch touchscreen with the ability to use gesture controls.

    Engines are expected to include a turbocharged 1.0L three-cylinder that is currently used in the Up and Polo along with re-worked versions of the 1.4L turbo-four. The 1.5L gas and diesel engines have been delayed according to sources because Volkswagen is redirecting their engineering efforts because of the diesel emission mess.

    Volkswagen will be revealing the revised Golf in a couple of weeks.

    It is unknown if and when the U.S. will see the refresh. Our money would be Volkswagen showing them for the 2018 model year.

    Changes that will keep it at the top of the hill.

     

    It's just a shame they dropped so many trims. Maybe the refresh will bring them back. I think if VW were smart, they'd do a Wolfsburg Edition with the 2.0T of the GTI, with more color ways and interior choices. It'd be an easy move for people who don't need the overt sportiness of the GTI.

    I hate the way they have cut out a lot of rims on all their models.  A new Wolfsburg would be a pretty sweet add to the lineup.
