Tee off with new Golf
THE game of Golf changes its rules early next year as Volkswagen tees off with a new, cheaper and more economical version.
The Golf VII is expected to boost Australian sales as Volkswagen debuts its lowcost MQB platform that will translate to reduced prices.
MQB is basically a one vehicle platform and a set series of components that can serve numerous car models. Volkswagen claims MQB — first seen on the Audi A3 — can cut up to 8 per cent off the build cost which will contribute to lower prices for the cars.
It expects MQB to be used on up to 60 models from Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda.
Volkswagen’s Golf VII, first displayed at the Paris Motor Show in September, will start production in October and be in Australia by March 2013.
