Added in: News


The all new MkVII Golf is going to be presented to the world on September 4th. The legendary Golf will get leaner, meaner, faster and will get a host of new technologies. Thanks to a few ‘leaked’ pages from the product presentation, we already know quite a bit about the new car. The headlines include 100 kg lighter weight, and magical technologies such as fatigue Detection, Traffic Signal Detection and Park Pilot. Driver would also have the convenience of selecting from a variety of driving profiles to suit the mood – comfortable or aggressive.  Here we have the list of new features listed in the presentation

  • 100 kg lighter
  • 23% more efficient
  • Front transverse diff lock
  • Progressive steering
  • Auto folding ORVM
  • LED foglights
  • Pr-crash safety features
  • Park Assist 2
  • City Emergency braking
  • Fatigue detection
  • Traffic sign detection
  • Park Pilot
  • Dynamic light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Front Assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Electric parking brake
  • Driving profile Selection
  • Cylinder deactivation tech
  • Ambience lighting
  • Run Flat tyres
  • Panoramic tilt-slide sunroof

Engine options would include petrol units dishing out 60 PS  to 150 PS and diesel units producing 90 PS to 190 PS of peak power and would also feature cylinder deactivation technology in some cases.

The new car would be 28mm shorter than the mkVI model, but would still manage to deliver more head and leg room to the occupants. Even the boot space would be reasonably more than the outgoing version.
