Details on next Volkswagen Golf emerge in leaked presentation
As one would expect, dimensions have grown all around. Overall length is up by 2.2 inches, wheelbase grows by 2.3 inches, the stretch meaning a mite more room for passengers in front and back with a cabin length increased by 0.56 inches. Even with the added girth, fuel economy is said to rise by as much as 23 percent.
The available feature set has also grown, with cylinder deactivation, the front transverse differential lock we've been expecting, fatigue detection and traffic sign detection, driving profile selection, run-flat tires and a "multicollision brake" just a few among a long list of particulars. We'll get the rest next week and we'll see it at the Paris Motor Show, in the meantime, you can watch the video below.
