According to a recent report, Volkswagen is considering building the next-generation Golf at their plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

With Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant gearing up for Passat production, rumors are circulating that the U.S. factory could also build the next-generation Golf.

While nothing is official, an anonymous source told InsideLine that Golf production is under consideration. This would seemingly be a logical move as the current Golf starts at $17,965 which is $1,970 more than roomier Jetta.

As we reported earlier this week, the next-generation Golf is scheduled to be introduced in late 2012 or early 2013. It is slated to ride on the new MQB architecture which will also underpin the redesigned Audi A3. This, by extension, could also imply the A3 will be built in Tennessee.
