Volkswagen Golf received a new base versionMay 29, 2020
Volkswagen has expanded the eighth generation Golf line with an entry-level model that uses a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine.
The latest version of the long-term family hatchback was released earlier this year and was available with 1.5-liter turbo-gasoline units, a 1.5-liter soft hybrid turbo-gasoline and 2.0-liter diesel engines.
The 1.0 TSI engine is widely used elsewhere in the Volkswagen range and in the wider Volkswagen group. So, the car accelerates 100 km / h in 10.2 seconds, plus a top speed of 202 km / h.
The 1.0-liter engine will only be offered with the basic Life package, which includes 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, parking sensors and electrically heated rear-view mirrors. Inside, the model is equipped with a 10-inch digital instrument display and a 10-inch infotainment touch screen. It also includes driver assistance features, including Car2X communications, cruise control and lane keeping assistance.
The new entry-level Golf costs £ 23,300 compared to £ 23,875 for the previous base model, which used a 128-liter 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine.
