Volkswagen Golf Plus

Volkswagen unveiled the second-generation Golf Plus at the Bologna Motor Show today. The new Golf Plus, which has been improved over its predecessor, will be launched in the European market in March 2009.

Visually, the new Plus forges a link to the classic body style of the recently introduced sixth-generation Golf, also taking design cues from the new Scirocco. This is especially apparent at the front end. The rear bumper and roof rails were also redesigned, while new steel and alloy wheels round out the exterior updates.

Inside, the Plus features new upholstery materials, new generation instruments, a revised steering wheel and an improved user interface for the HVAC unit; details also implemented in the Golf.

Power for the new Golf Plus will be supplied via five gasoline engines or four new common rail turbo-diesel engines, ranging in output from 79hp to 158hp (petrol) and 89hp to 138hp (diesel). Conventional automatic transmissions have also been replaced by 6- and 7-speed dual clutch (DSG) gearboxes.
