The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf MK7 Facelift is 3 days away from its official unveiling and it will bring upon us a new design and two engines as well.
With the current VW Golf MK7 released in 2014 and expected to last till 2018, it is now time for a mid-cycle refresh. The engines include a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine based on the current 1.4-liter with a longer stroke and a 1.5-liter diesel downsized from the current 1.6-liter TDI with a reduced bore size.
Don’t expect these engines to go on sale straight away however; Volkswagen brand chief executive Herbert Diess said that the engines will be available “when it makes sense to produce them for CO2 regulations, because they are more expensive than the current engines.”
Word is; The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf MK7 will also include Gesture Control. In addition to that, we will probably see revised tail-lights and headlights with improved bumper designs on the front and the back with side-skirts to match. The interior will also feature some new materials and upgrades.
