Volkswagen announced this week that the Golf VII is now available with three new engines, starting with the 1.2-liter TSI BlueMotion that produces 105 HP (77 kW). The next one is a 1.4-liter TSI BlueMotion with 122 HP (90 kW), followed by the same engine but with 140 HP (103 kW) and the active cylinder management (ACM) system. These three power units can be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or to a seven-speed DSG. Unfortunately, Volkswagen didn't provide fuel-efficiency figures yet.
From now on the seventh generation Golf is available with the company’s 4Motion all-wheel drive system but only for versions equipped with either the 1.6-liter TDI BlueMotion engine with 105 HP (77 kW) or the 2.0-liter TDI BlueMotion with 150 HP (110 kW), connected to the aforementioned manual gearbox.
In related news, Volkswagen has also announced that the Comfortline and Highline versions of the Golf VII can be fitted with the driver assistance pack that starts from 1,690 euros and adds goodies such as ACC adaptive cruise control, bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs, anti-theft warning system “Plus” and others as well.
