New VW Golf Plus Breaks Cover at Bologna Motor Show

What VW sees as the second-generation Golf Plus but is in reality a mildly facelfited version of the more practical Golf, made its debut at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy. The subtly updated, plus-sized Golf, attempts to forge a link to the bodystyle of the Golf VI hatchback especially in what concerns the front end design with a new grille, redesigned bumper and revised headlamps. The rear bumper and roof rails were also redesigned as were the ‘cherry red’ rear lights that now incorporate LED technology. The exterior styling modifications are complemented by a range of new wheel and tire options, including 18-inch ‘Bilbao’ alloy wheels from VW’s Individual division.

There’s also new steering wheel options and air conditioning systems that are similar in design to those found in the new Golf and Passat CC.

Volkswagen has still to be confirm the full engine lineup, but there will a 1.4-litre 122HP TSI gasoline engine which is forecast to return 44.8 mpg UK with a top speed of 124 mph and a range of diesel units with outputs between 90HP and 140HP

For the first time on the Golf Plus, VW will offer its new ParkAssist system that has the ability to operate the steering automatically during reverse parallel parking manoeuvres. A rear-view camera, mounted behind the Volkswagen roundel on the bootlid, will also be available as an option

Prices, engines and specifications for the new Golf Plus will be announced closer to the vehicle’s launch in Spring 2009.
