2010 VW Golf unveiled

Volkswagen debuted the new 2010 Golf at the Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) last week in Toronto.

The sixth generation compact hatchback was presented for the first time in North America in a five-door 2.0 litre TDI Diesel version.

One of the world’s most popular vehicles ever, the Golf has sold over 26 million units since its introduction in Europe in 1974. Volkswagen also announced that nearly 400,000 Rabbits, Golfs, and GTIs have been sold in Canada since the introduction of the first generation in 1975.

The Golf’s redesign team, headed by the Volkswagen Group’s chief designer, Walter de Silva, with Klaus Bischoff and Flavio Manzoni, has succeeded in giving the Golf a presence, sharpness, and a power that generates even more fun.

All key body elements were redesigned, and the Golf has a sportier and more distinctive image.

In front, the new car adopts the radiator grille of the first generation Golf that is horizontally aligned between the headlights. The lines of the bumper match those of the radiator grille, and beneath this is a section with another air scoop.

The rear is characterized by a predominance of horizontal lines. The taillights — now very wide — are marked among other things by an unmistakably unique night design, and bear a resemblance to the taillights of the Touareg TDI Clean Diesel.

The interior is also newly designed, especially in the cockpit area. The appearance and layout of the materials, including details such as brushed chrome accents and round instruments derived directly from the Passat CC, and well-thought ergonomic properties with controls that are easier to use all contribute to a highly functional and pleasant experience.
