The eighth generation Golf engine range will include a new family of 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, as well as a 1.5-liter diesel engine, which will replace the current 1.6-liter units. Also, the eighth Volkswagen Golf will have a version with a hybrid power plant with the ability to recharge batteries from a household electrical outlet.
Volkswagen called the timing of the appearance of the new “Golf”
Sales of the eighth generation Volkswagen Golf in Europe will begin at the end of February next year. First, the model will enter the German market, and then appear in other countries.The timing of the launch of the new “Golf” on the market was announced by Jurgen Stackmann, responsible for marketing and selling the brand, in an interview with Automotive News Europe. In addition, he complained about the complexity of setting up internal security systems, as the car ceased to be a closed ecosystem: now there is 10 times more code than in the operating systems of modern smartphones, and each subsequent update can cause a serious failure.
