Second generation Golf Plus revealed

Volkswagen has revealed its second generation Golf Plus which will have its UK launch in spring 2009.


Petrol and diesel engines are still to be confirmed but will have improved levels of fuel economy and reduced emissions, said Volkswagen.

Both engine versions are linked to either a five- or six-speed manual or a six- or seven-speed DSG gearbox.

The updated design has a similar style to the sixth generation Golf hatchback and a lower profile than its predecessor.

ParkAssist offered on Golf Plus

Volkswagen’s ParkAssist will be offered on Golf Plus.

The system, currently available on the new Golf, Tiguan and Passat CC, can steer automatically during reverse parallel parking manoeuvres.

A rear-view camera, mounted behind the Volkswagen roundel on the bootlid, will also be available as an option.

Prices, engines and specifications for the new Golf Plus will be announced closer to its launch.
