Basic versions of the new VW Golf will not be available to everyoneMay 27, 2019
An unnamed authoritative source reports that for some automotive markets, a new (eighth) generation of the German Golf hatchback will be offered only in the more powerful versions of the GTI and R.
Some editions report that the next-generation VW Golf will receive a “trimmed” number of available kits in some countries. Journalists have published information that states that the basic version of the new product will not be available in the US, where the more practical and universal version of the model (SportWagen) will not appear either.
The North American representative office of Volkswagen recently announced to its dealers that it was impossible to sell the basic performance of the new Golf, as well as the wagon Golf SportWagen. Only more powerful versions of the GTI and R will be offered in North America.
The latter will be on sale next year in accordance with the promise made by representatives of VW. However, new information received from “people familiar with the automaker’s plans” suggests that cars will not be available in the United States until the end of 2021 as new products for the 2022 model year. So far, the more off-road version of the German novelty, which by tradition will be called the Alltrack, is unknown.
It is reported that the basic modifications of the new Golf may still appear in Canada. As indicated by the foreign edition, the standard Golf is the best-selling VW car in this country, and dealers are unlikely to give up so easily.
With the advent of a new generation of German hatchback, mass production of all versions of the model will be fully transferred to Germany.
