Mega Gallery with 107 Photos of the All-New 2013 Volkswagen Golf Mk7

Having completed the media and motor show presentations of the new 2013 Golf, Volkswagen is now gearing up for the market launch of its bread-and-butter model, with the first country to get the car being, of course, Germany.

The first examples of the seventh generation Golf in both 3- and 5-door body styles will arrive at VW’s German showrooms on November 10, with more European markets to follow in the coming weeks.

Volkswagen continues to keep us in the dark about when the new Golf will make its North American motor show debut and sales launch as well as with what engines it will be offered.

In Europe, VW’s C-segment competitor will offer customers a wide choice of new turbocharged diesel and petrol engines, all of which are fitted with a stop/start system and battery regeneration as standard, with outputs ranging from 84hp (85PS) to 148hp (150PS).

Newcomers include a 1.4-litre TSI 138HP (140PS) unit with Active Cylinder Technology, which can deactivate two of the cylinders, and returns up to 4.8 lt/100 km (49mpg US or 58.9mpg UK and 112 g/km).

The most fuel-efficient model of the range is the new BlueMotion model powered by a 109Hp (81kW / 110PS) 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine that returns 3.2lt/100km (73.5mpg US or 88.3mpg UK), with CO2 emissions of only 85g/km.

Next summer, VW will present the production version of the Golf GTI powered by a new 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine rated at 217Hp (220PS). A flagship, AWD “R” model will follow later on.

A couple more things you should know about the Golf Mk7 is that it’s based on VW’s new MQB platform and that, while longer and wider than the car it replaces, it’s also up to 100kg or 220 pounds lighter.

If you scroll down, you will find a fresh gallery of high-resolution images where you can check out the new Golf in detail.
