Volkswagen unveils new Golf model

VOLKSWAGEN has revealed pictures of the new Golf which will make its debut at September's Frankfurt Motor Show.

The fifth-generation Golf (pictured below) boasts more interior space than its predecessor, a larger luggage compartment and a bodyshell 80% stiffer than the outgoing model.

All models will come with six airbags and the range will be offered with the new 2.0-litre TDI Euro IV compliant diesel as well as a 1.6-litre FSI petrol engine – both of them already available in the new Touran.

Other engines include a 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.9-litre TDI diesel, with four other units following its initial launch, including two more FSI engines and a normally-aspirated diesel version. An automatic transmission and the new DSG sequential manual gearbox option will follow in 2004.
