    What Is The Timeline For Next Golf?


    William Maley

    Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com

    July 25, 2012

    Car & Driver reports that Volkswagen has confirmed the dates of when the Mark 7 Golf and its variants will be going on sale. The base Golf will go on sale next spring for European markets. North America has to wait until the fall to get theirs.

    However, North America and Europe will get their hands on next GTI at the same time when its launched next Fall.

    Also, Volkswagen is considering whether to send the next generation GTD over to the states. If you don't know what GTD is, take a regular GTI and drop a diesel engine into it.

    Would be a heck of a car if VW could get its reliability problems into line.

    I think the bodywork will look sweet...but the repairs...not so much.

    Once again, methinks GM might be building better cars than some of their competition....

    Clearly VW is hurting as I saw this morning on TV that the Puget Sound VW dealers are offering Golfs and Jetta's with no money down and only $79.95 a month for 36 month lease and 15K miles.

    This just screams I have crappy product and have to give it away like Mitsubishi did to keep cars moving off the lots.

    79 bucks? link please!!!! i wonder what the catch is.

    VW is NOT hurting. Passats and Jettas are flying out of showrooms. .....

    Golf is classic, for Europe. I wish they could sex up the Golf a bit. Something akin to a Verano hatch, pls.

    I might have leased one a couple years back if they hadn't had the lame 2.5 in it.

    Here is one I found on the net.

    http://www.leasetrader.com/Volkswagen-Jetta-Lease-Specials

    The company that was running the crazy $79 lease on Jetta's and other VW cars in a TV commercial was Larson Auto's VW dealerships. They are pretty much it for the area other than one other small family owned VW dealership in the northend.

    http://www.larsonvw.com/page/incentives/en/#

    This is their incentive page. It looks like the $79 might be on a stripped manual Jetta. But to confirm the price they want you to give them your info and they will get back to you.

    Flying out of the showrooms yes, but they still have the worst dealer network of any car maker, and a huge number of quality issues.

    love the scirrocco or whatever the German name is. Corrado?

    I don't think it would sell a lot here, but I do think VW would benefit from it being here.

    I parked next to a CC today, and I've always liked it..... but now I am not at all interested, and it's got the interior guts from the several years old old Passat.

    The new Jetta and Passat are not VW but are the new face of VW, and it is selling like mad. The Beetles, Golfs, and Rabbits are what VW sort of was.

    Yea saw Larsons add for Washington state again, Manual Jetta with cloth interior, am/fm hd radio and the normal required safety devices for $79 a month. For $89 a month they say you can step up to navigation and a few other bells and whistles and then they have a $99 jetta with auto and a $109 jetta fully loaded if I read the commercial right. So much thrown at you in a 30 sec spot.

    These lease rates should keep them moving cars, but I wonder if there is really any value in the residual and with their quality issues, I wonder how long these cars really will last.

    ...and ironically...I would have traded in the Miata for this rather than buying the MINI Cooper S had the Socorro been available.

    VW screwed themselves out of one sale (me and the Mrs) by not having this available stateside...

    read today where sergio marchonne is accusing VW of dumping cars in Europe.

    They're sort of dumping them here too, but their quest is to like double sales......

    even my Dad now wants to look at a new Passat diesel. He always wanted a Rabbit diesel. I highly doubt he will be ok with the build quality on the new VW's......

      If there is one bright spot in Volkswagen, it has to be their commercial division. Through August, the division has seen sales increase 8.2 percent to 308,500 models. With their success, it should come as no surprise they are considering moving into other markets such as the U.S.
      Eckhard Scholz, Volkswagen's commercial vehicles division CEO tells Reuters that the United States "are still a highly interesting market." A lot of this comes from many commercial vehicle manufacturers operating in the U.S. are taking ideas from their European counterparts. But when asked about possibly selling vehicles in the U.S., Scholz said,
      "A lot of things come to mind but at the moment I have nothing concrete to say."
      Volkswagen's commercial division handles the Caddy, Transporter, and Crafter vans, along with the Amarok pickup. 
      This isn't the first time that Volkswagen has considered bringing over some of their commercial vehicles. Last year, then CEO of Volkswagen of America, Michael Horn said the automaker was looking at possibly bringing over one of their vans into the U.S.
      But there is a big elephant in the room; the diesel emission scandal. A fair number of commercial vehicle buyers like diesel engines for fuel economy and the ability to handle heavy loads. But Volkswagen may have a very difficult time trying to get diesel engines certified in the U.S. They might have to go with gas engines for the time being which could limit their appeal.

      There are changes afoot in the Volkswagen Golf family. We'll begin with the bad news, the two-door Golf GTI will be no more in the U.S. Car and Driver was able to confirm this news with Volkswagen. Why? 
      “The trend is clearly shifting toward four-door models,” said Volkswagen of America’s marketing chief, Hendrik Muth.
      Originally, Volkswagen was planning to offer the two-door GTI for 2017, but only in the base S trim. 
      Now for the possible good news, Volkswagen is considering adding all-wheel drive to the standard Golf. During the press launch of the Golf Alltrack, Volkswagen's vice president of product marketing and strategy Dr. Hendrik Muth explained that adding 4Motion to the Puebla, Mexico factory has brought forth new possibilities. The Truth About Cars asked if one of the possibilities was adding all-wheel drive to the standard Golf and Muth answered "Yes".
      Volkswagen wants to give Subaru a real challenge in the compact class. The Japanese automaker is the only one that offers all-wheel drive on their standard compact models - Impreza and XV Crosstrek.
