The next generation Volkswagen Golf is currently under development and details of this new car model have already started to surface. The vehicle will reportedly draw cues from the two-seater XL1 and is slated to receive cutting-edge aerodynamics.
The new Volkswagen Golf is expected to benefit from new technologies, such as the Flywheel system, Coasting technology and electric turbochargers, which are aimed at providing extra power, better fuel economy figures and lower carbon emissions.
The engineers from Volkswagen will probably do their best so that the hatchback will meet the European Union’s CO2 emissions standards which are set to be enforced in 2020.
The upcoming Golf may feature a lower body than the current model. It will be based on the MQB platform and its base kerb weight is said to be kept under 1100 kg.
Using advanced fuel-saving technologies, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf has many chances to become the most economical mainstream car ever.
