Launched in 1997, the Volkswagen Golf Mk4[2] (or VW Typ 1J) was the best selling
car in Europe in 2001 (though it slipped to second place, behind the Peugeot 206, in
2002).[3] The Mk4 was a deliberate attempt to take the Volkswagen Golf series further
upmarket, with a high-quality interior and higher equipment levels. Overall the level of
maturity of the design and its target audience were also evident — the humorous plays
on the game of golf which resulted in special edition models of the three earlier
generations being called "Golf Ryder", "Golf Driver", not to mention the GTI's "golf
ball" gearlever knob were dropped, and replaced with a more subtly styled golf ball
knob.It was replaced in 2004 by the Volkswagen Golf Mk5.

[edit] Design and engineering

The Golf Mk4 was a significant car in its class. As with its big brother, not only was it
the first step of Volkswagen moving its products upmarket to plug a gap between the
mainstream machines and the premium cars, with SEAT and Škoda taking over as the
mainstream in a new level of interior quality and sophistication never seen before from
a mainstream brand in the class. In fact, the quality of the Golf was on a par with its
sister Audi A3 from the year before, but cost considerably more than other cars in its
The latest model remained faithful to the Golf concept but included some of the new
"arched" styling themes first seen on the Mk4 Passat.
[edit] Golf Cabriolet

2000–2003 Golf Cabrio (Australia)

As with the Mk2 Golf, Volkswagen did not make a convertible version of the Mk4
Golf. Instead, the firm replaced the front and rear bumper bars of a Mk3 Golf and gave
the car the Mk4 headlights and the grille to match. This was done to give it the car the
frontal styling of the Mk4 Golf hatchbacks. The rear had its number plates moved into
the bumper bar and a larger VW logo was incorporated over the Mk4's typical hatch
handle. The interior was also improved with "pixel" treatment to the dashboard, blue
lighting for the instrument panel and more use of chrome, such as the door handles.
[edit] Variant

Volkswagen Golf Variant (Mk4)

The Volkswagen Golf Mk4 Variant was introduced in 1999. It was discontinued in
2006, and successed in 2007 by the Volkswagen Golf Mk5 Variant. Unlike the Mk3, it
was offered in North America where the Jetta name and front sheetmetal were used.
[edit] Volkswagen Bora/Jetta Mk4
Main article: Volkswagen Jetta
Volkswagen spawned a saloon version of the Mk4 Golf. As with previous incarnations
of the Golf, it had its own identity, and this time was called the Volkswagen Bora
although the name Jetta remained in North America and South Africa. Unlike its
predecessors, the Bora/Jetta featured unique rear doors, front wings and bonnet. The
front doors were the only body panels it shared with the Golf. The interior, though, was
almost identical to the Golf, featuring very minor styling changes like its predecessor.

Volkswagen Jetta
Germany, South Africa, Slovakia, Brazil, Belgium, and China all made the Golf 4.
Eastern European locations making the Golf 4 included Bosnia and Herzegovina, in
Vogošća (near Sarajevo), which also made Mk1 and Mk2 models. However, although
the Bosnian Mk4 was popular it was only available in the local market.
The Golf/Jetta Mk4 engine choices included 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.3 litre V5, 2.8 litre V6
and 3.2 litre R32 petrol engines, and a 1.9 litre turbodiesel, with power ranging from 68
to 150 PS (50 to 110 kW).
Volkswagen made a choice of three and five-door hatchback or a five-door station
wagon available. The European Golf wagon was nearly identical to the North American
Jetta Wagon. The only difference was the use of the Golf front headlights, bumpers,
grille, and fenders as these parts are interchangeable between the Mk4 Golf and
The Golf 4 was introduced to North America in mid-1999. Available engines for the
Golf at its introduction to the American market were a 2.0 L gasoline engine, and a
thrifty (48mpg) 1.9 L TDI engine. The latter soon developed a reputation for good low-
speed torque and fuel economy, and can operate on alternative biofuels. In 2004 the
updated 1.9L TDI PD or "Pumpe-Düse" engine was installed in the Golf and Jetta's. The
"Pumpe-Düse" or Pump Nozzle was a Robert Bosch extreme high pressure fuel
injection system for direct cylinder injection. A 1.8 L turbocharged gas engine was
introduced in 2000, along with the 12-valve 2.8 L VR6. At the same time, the 1.6 L 8-
valve unit was replaced with the 16-valve unit from the Polo GTI, but detuned to 77 kW
(105 PS). The 2.0 L gasoline engine was the base engine in the sportier GTI only as a
1999.5 model. For 2000, Volkswagen opted for the relatively new 1.8 L turbocharged
gasoline engine as a base engine for the GTI. The top-of-the-line GLX model was
equipped with Volkswagen's torquey 2.8 L VR6, which put out an impressive 174 hp
(130 kW). The VR6 engine, with its narrow 15-degree Vee design, was unique to
Volkswagen. This engine is shorter and lighter (featuring a single cylinder head) than
other V6 engines which benefits the handling characteristics of this front-wheel drive
car. For the 2002.5 model year Volkswagen introduced a 24-valve version of its VR6
engine. This engine had the same torque characteristics of the older 12-valve version,
with an extra 26 hp (19 kW). The 1.8T and VR6 models continued until 2005, when the
Mk4 platform came to an end in North America. Both the Mk4 Golf and the Mk4 Jetta
are still in production in Brazil, Mexico, and China as of 2008.
The Brazilian Golf TDI PD was sold in Canada due to its popularity as a full 2006
models in base, GL and GLS trim levels for the full model year as there were no diesel
engine versions for the North American 2007 Mk5 Golf (Rabbit).
In Europe, trim levels were country-specific, although some markets got E, S, SE, GTI
and V5/V6/V6 4MOTION versions. The V5 was available in 150 bhp (110 kW) and
170 bhp (130 kW) versions

[edit] GTI 25th Anniversary Edition (2002)

Volkswagen GTI 337 Edition

The GTI 25th Anniversary Edition was a special version of the Golf GTI, for the
European Market to commemorate the first Golf model, launched in 1976. At the time
of its launch, it wasn't confirmed whether Volkswagen was going to sell this special
edition model in the United States.[4]
A year later, a similarly-equipped version of the GTI, called the GTI 337 Edition, was
officially introduced at the New York Auto Show and made it to dealers late May 2002
to the US & Canadian markets. The price of the GTI 337 was $22,225 in the U.S. and
$32,900 in Canada. Only 1,500 units were produced for the US market with an
additional 250[5] for the Canadian market. This model came painted exclusively in
metallic Reflex Silver.
Both the GTI 25th anniversary and the 337 editions were equipped with many extra
features not included in the standard GTI. They included: 18x7.5" BBS RC Wheels with
special ball peen finish, perforated leather shift boot and handbrake, red and black seat
belts, Red and Black upholstered Recaro seats, factory body kit (front valance,
sideskirts, hatch spoiler, and rear valance), 02M 6-speed manual transmission, larger
front and rear brakes, lowered sport tuned suspension, and brushed aluminum interior
trim. These models were never equipped with a sunroof as to take the car back to its
roots, the Mk1 GTI, and improve handling and performance.
[edit] GTI 20th Anniversary Edition (2003)

Volkswagen GTI 20th Anniversary Edition

Volkswagen GTI 20th Anniversary Edition Interior

Following the initial commemorative anniversary edition GTI produced in Europe in
1996 celebrating the introduction of the GTI model in 1976, and the overwhelming
popularity of the 25th anniversary edition GTI produced 2001 (known as the GTI 337 in
North America when released in 2002), Volkswagen of America produced 4,200 so-
branded "20th Anniversary Edition" GTIs and 4000 were shipped to the United States
and 200 to Canada. This event, in 2003, marked the 20th anniversary of the GTI's first
introduction to the U.S. and Canadian market, some 7 years after the GTI was
introduced to the European market. Several special features distinguish this new GTI
from the rest of the pack.
On the outside, the 20th Anniversary edition came with throwback red-lettered GTI
logos on the left front and right rear. The rear was also accompanied by a vintage-look
chrome rabbit. Blackened headlights added a distinctive look, while Votex front, rear,
and side skirts along with a hatch spoiler and special edition 18" OZ Aristo alloy wheels
wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sports complete the exterior transformation. These models
were produced only in three colours: Imola Yellow, Jazz Blue and Black Magic Pearl.
Distribution of production was 50% Black magic pearl, 25% Jazz Blue and 25% Imola
Inside, a few accents were noticeable. Unlike other models, there were no options
offered. The only true option was ESP, Volkswagen's stability control feature. All
"20ths" had a sunroof, black headliner, golf ball shift knob, black leather steering wheel
with silver stitching, black leather shifter boot with silver stitching, perforated leather
covered hand brake handle, and sporty black cloth Recaro bucket seats with silver
stitching accents and red GTI emblems embroidered in the middle of the back rests.
Aluminum trim came standard, complete with a numbered nameplate above the center
console identifying the exact production number (US production only) of the vehicle.
Volkswagen's premier 8-speaker Monsoon stereo system was also standard.
Mechanically, the 20th Anniversary Edition GTI is nearly identical to the GTI 337
Edition. A 6-speed manual 02m transmission marked the most notable departure from
the norm, and upgraded suspension stiffened up the ride and lowered the car
approximately 30 mm (lower sport springs and revised bushings in the rear). Upgraded
disc brakes front (12.3" vented rotors) and rear (10.3" vented rotors) helped bring things
to a stop, while red powder-coated calipers added a bit of flair to the package.
Starting in 2002 with engine code AWP, all of the models of the GTI's 1.8T increased in
factory boost pressure and horsepower from 150 bhp (110 kW) to 180 bhp (130 kW).
[edit] R32 (2002)

European-spec R32
In 2002, Volkswagen produced the Golf R32 in Europe as a 2003 model year. Due to
unexpected popularity, Volkswagen of America decided to sell the car in the United
States as the 2004 model year Volkswagen R32. Billed as the pinnacle of the Golf IV
platform, the R32 included every performance, safety, and luxury feature Volkswagen
had to offer, including the all new 3.2 litre 24-valve VR6 engine (ID codes: BFH/BML),
which produced a rated motive power output of 177 kilowatts (241 PS; 237 hp), and
236 lb·ft (320 N·m) of torque. The North American variant of the R32 shared the same
mass flow sensor (MAF) as the original Audi TT 3.2, which was slightly larger (¼")
than the European spec R32's MAF. This is said to have increased horsepower to that of
the Audi TT 3.2, at about 250hp. Further additions included Haldex Traction-based
4motion on-demand four-wheel drive system, a new six-speed manual transmission,
independent rear suspension, Climatronic automatic climate control, sport seats from
König with R32 logos, 18" OZ Aristo alloy wheels (Ronal produced the wheels towards
the end of production), Electronic Stability Programme, larger 334 mm (13.1 in) disc
brakes with gloss blue painted calipers, sunroof, and model specific bodywork
In the US, the vehicle was available in only four colours: Black Magic Pearl, Deep Blue
Pearl, Reflex Silver, and Tornado Red. The distribution of US-spec R32 colours were as
follows:[citation needed]
Deep Blue Pearl: 40%
Reflex Silver: 35%
Black Magic Pearl: 15%
Tornado Red: 10%
Although the R32 looked similar to the 25th Anniversary GTI, it shared most of its
major components with the 3.2 litre Audi TT, including the engine, four-wheel drive
system, and both front and rear suspension geometries. Five thousand cars were
produced and intended to be sold over a two-year period, but the entire line was sold out
within 13 months.[citation needed]
The R32 is the second quickest car that Volkswagen has imported to the U.S., after the
B6 Passat 3.6 4motion Sedan - at 5.6 seconds. The R32 is capable of 0-100 kilometres
per hour (62.1 mph) in 6.6 seconds, and clearing the quarter mile in 14.1 seconds at
99.2 mph (159.6 km/h).[citation needed] The R32 edges out its third fastest sibling, the top-of-
the-line Phaeton 6.0 litre W12 (414 bhp), by a tenth of a second at the 1,320-foot (402
m) mark.[citation needed]
It also has a surprisingly high resale and used-car value; the Kelley Blue Book used car
retail price (the price an individual might expect to pay for one from a dealer) for a
model in excellent condition with low mileage actually exceeds the original retail price
of the car in many cases, making it one of a few recent cars that have actually
approached an increase in value over time. This premium can be explained mostly due
to scarcity, both of the cars themselves due to low production and importation, and
especially ones that still have extremely low mileage.

and South America

2008-2010 Volkswagen City Golf (Canada)

In China, FAW-VW launched a new Golf IV, with FAW-VW's Bora facelift front, at
the Beijing International Automobile Exhibition in 2006. It is named Bora HS to
complement the Bora Mk IV range, as the Golf name will be reserved for the Golf VI
soon to manufactured by FAW-VW in Q3, 2009.
The Golf Mk4 also continues to be sold in countries such as Brazil, Chile and
Argentina. However, in Argentina the range is available on 1.6L 4 cylinder petrol, a
2.0L 4-cylinder petrol, 1.8L Turbo petrol, or a 1.9-litre 130 bhp (97 kW) turbodiesel. In
Chile, it is also sold, on 1.6 to 2.0L petrol range. Also, there is a turbo 1.8 version
available. All of these are Brazilian built models with a 4-cylinder petrol engines.
In Brazil, the Mk4 Golf has a 1.6 (with Volkswagen Totalflex system which accepts
both gasoline or alcohol), 1.8 Turbocharged engine and 2.0-litre engine, and comes in
main trim level only.
In 2007, Volkswagen Brazil has introduced a major restyling of the fourth generation
Golf. The front takes styling cues from the current Volkswagen Polo and the back of the
car is inspired by the Golf 5.[6] It is exported in most Latin America countries, since it is
produced in Brazil. It is also sold in Canada, where it is sold alongside the Mk5 model
badged as the Rabbit. The Canadian model was renamed as the City Golf, in 2009 it
was renamed the Golf City alongside the Jetta City.It is not sold in the United States.
Pricing of the Golf City starts at C$15,300 as of 2008. As an entry-level alternative to
the Rabbit, it offers only one engine: the 2.0L SOHC 8 valves with 115 hp (86 kW). It is
not related to the South African Volkswagen CitiGolf, despite the similarity in name.
The Mk4 Jetta has been similarly reintroduced in Canada for the 2007 model year as the
City Jetta. This is the first entry-level car from a previous-generation car since the 1992
Eagle Vista, which was a rebadged 1980s Mitsubishi Mirage. Although the Golf City is
dated, its attractive price enables good sales. The Golf City is going through its last
model year.

• In 1999, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Catholic Church's
Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith under Pope John Paul II, purchased a
fourth-generation Golf to drive around Rome in, and sold it in 2005 after John
Paul's death in anticipation of retiring and returning to Germany. Instead, he
became Pope Benedict XVI. His 1999 Golf sold for nearly a quarter of a million
U.S. dollars shortly thereafter.[7]

Volkswagen Golf é um automóvel fabricado pela Volkswagen. Foi lançado no mercado

europeu em 1974 e no mercado brasileiro em 1995, quando já estava na sua terceira
O Golf é, atualmente, o carro de maior sucesso e vendas na história da Volkswagen,
superando até o mítico Volkswagen Fusca/Volkswagen Carocha, carro que substituiu na
Europa a partir da década de 70. O Golf passou por várias reestilizações e, na Europa,
está em sua sexta geração. No Brasil, a quinta geração nunca esteve disponível. Porém,
foi lançada uma reestilização da quarta, cujo modelo GTi foi o carro mais potente em
produção no país, com 193cv. Ele saiu de linha em 12 de fevereiro de 2009, devido as
baixas vendas. [1]

[editar] O nome
O nome Golf é alusivo ao desporto, como o carro, que sugere não somente a
desportividade, mas também o requinte. os primeiros GTi tinham motor 1.6 8v com
[editar] Segunda Geração
Após o sucesso inicial do Golf no mercado europeu, veio a segunda geração na década
de 80. Dotada de injecção electrónica Bosch K-Jetronic (CIS), não demorou até
aparecer o primeiro GTi. Com motor 1.8 16v, o carro desenvolvia 139 cv na versão
europeia e 129 no mercado norte-americano.
[editar] Terceira Geração
Ver artigo principal: Volkswagen Golf mk3
A terceira geração foi lançada em 1991. No Brasil, foram comercializados os modelos
GLX (2.0) e GL (1.8), além do GTi (2.0 8v dotado de fluxo cruzado de admissão) e o
VR6 2.8. O GTi 2.0 16v não foi vendido no país. Na Europa, para além dos motores
diesel, era possível encontrar também um motor 1.4, um 1.6 GT com cerca de 100 cv e
um 1.8 GTi.
[editar] Quarta Geração
O Golf sofreu mais uma metamorfose chegando a sua quarta geração em 1998, com
motores 1.6 (101cv, EA113 também conhecido com SR), 2.0 (116cv), 1.8 Turbo
(150cv), 2.8 VR6 (201cv) e 3.2 VR6 (240cv). Em 2002 a quarta geraçao passou por
pequenas mudanças, os repetidores do pisca laterais tornaram-se transparentes (antes
eram âmbar), a versão GTi passou a contar com um motor 1.8 Turbo com 180cv e no
Brasil o motor 1.6 EA113 foi substituido pelo 1.6 EA111, dotado de acelerador
eletrônico E-Gas. Em 2007 antes da reestilização o Golf IV original recebeu a
tecnologia bicombustivel TotalFlex na versão 1.6. Mais conhecida como Golf 4 e 1/2, a
atual geração comercializada no Brasil foi lançada em 2007 com motores 1.6 TotalFlex
(101cv e 104cv), 2.0 (116cv), que em 2008 também recebeu a tecnologia TotalFlex
(passando a contar com 116cv e 120cv). A versão GTi (equipada com um propulsor 1.8
Turbo de 193cv) deixou de ser produzida e comercializada no Brasil em 2009.
[editar] Quinta Geração
Na Europa, já está em produção a quinta geração, lançada ao fim de 2003. Conta com
inovações como injecção directa de combustível, designada por FSI. Essa geração não
foi comercializada no Brasil. Em Portugal já são comercializados com esta tecnologia o
1.4 GT de 170 cv e o 1.4 de 140 cv. Também saiu o Golf GTi no ano de 2002, com o
motor 2.0 de 130cv, série limitada.
[editar] Sexta Geração
Disponivel em Portugal desde Outubro de 2008 o novo Golf apresenta-se atraente com
uma frente mais desportiva e actual.A Volkswagen anunciará o Golf VI como nacional
(fabricado em São José dos Pinhais)em 2012.[1]
[editar] Conforto
Os níveis de insonorização e de conforto acústico superam todas as barreiras da classe.
A aparência e a disposição dos materiais, bem como os detalhes como o alumínio
escovado, a instrumentação circular e o volante derivados do Passat CC, deixam a
impressão de que se está a bordo de um modelo do segmento superior.
[editar] Segurança
Os sistemas de assistência à condução, como o Controlo de Distância Automático
(ACC), o chassis adaptativo (DCC) e a função de estacionamento automático (“Park
Assist”), trazem para a a classe do Golf um valor acrescido. Em complemento, o novo
Golf apresenta um nível máximo de protecção dos seus ocupantes: um novo dispositivo
de controlo de estabilidade (ESP), com uma resposta mais precisa em todo o seu campo
de acção; sete airbags (incluindo airbags para os joelhos); apoios de cabeça especiais
(WOKS) que funcionam para contrariar o efeito de chicote; sistema de detecção de
cinto de segurança nos lugares traseiros; luzes de presença diurnas. Na segurança
passiva, o Golf VI estreia um novo sensor de detecção da severidade do embate.
Localizado a meio do habitáculo, este sensor avalia e “sente” sinais de desaceleração de
baixa frequência. Adicionalmente, acelerómetros especiais medem a frequência dos
componentes numa faixa mais “audível”, sinais esses que são gerados quando as
estruturas na zona dianteira do veículo começam a deformar-se. Esses sinais, ou “ondas
sonoras” propagam-se muito rapidamente pelo veículo e permitem que o sistema avalie
rápida e eficazmente a severidade da colisão, fazendo actuar os airbags e os pré-tensores
dos cintos de segurança de acordo com os padrões da colisão.
[editar] Motores
A grande novidade no que diz respeito aos motores é o lançamento com esta VI geração
dos motores common rail (os antigos eram bomba injectora). Todos os motores a
gasolina e Diesel cumprem os requisitos da futura norma de controlo de emissões Euro
[editar] Modelo a diesel
No lançamento estão disponíveis dois motores 2.0 TDi de 110 e 140 CV
(posteriormento o GTD com 170cv), ambos equipados com filtro de partículas (DPF).
Os novos TDI são muito económicos. O motor de 110 CV contenta-se com uns 4,5
litros de gasóleo por cada 100 km (apenas 119 g/km de emissões de CO2), o que
representa uma redução de 0,6 litros no consumo de combustível! Mesmo o motor de
140 CV necessita somente de 4,9 litros de gasóleo (129 g/km de CO2), reduzindo
também em 0,6 litros o consumo de combustível face à anterior geração. A tecnologia
common rail dos novos TDi do Golf VI, é de terceira geração. O sistema atinge pressões
até 1800 bar e cada injector, do tipo piezo, conta com oito atomizadores. Os cristais
piezo assistidos hidraulicamente injectam combustível em fracções de segundo.
[editar] Modelo a gasolina
Na fase de lançamento, a nova gama Golf tem três opções de motores a gasolina, com
80, 122 e 160 CV. Os motores a partir de 122 CV são da gama TSi, com
sobrealimentação dupla ou apenas com turbocompressor. Estes motores a gasolina são
também pioneiros no que respeita à economia de combustível. O motor de 80 CV de
acesso à gama, consome apenas 6,4 litros/100 km (149 g/km CO2), ou seja, menos 0,5
litros do que o seu antecessor. Os motores TSi também constituem exemplos de
eficiência na economia de combustível: com 122 CV, o Golf 1.4 TSi consome somente
6,2 litros/100 km (144 g/km CO2), o que representa uma poupança de 0,1 litros. O
motor 1.4 TSi de 122 CV, com turbocompressor e intercooler, desenvolve um binário
máximo de 220 Nm, disponível logo desde as 1250 rpm. O binário específico deste
motor atinge o excelente valor de 144 Nm por litro, entre as 5000 e as 6400 rpm, o que
contribui decisivamente para a economia de combustível. Mesmo o mais potente 1.4
TSi de 160 CV não ultrapassa um consumo de 6,3 litros aos 100 km, o que equivale a
uma diminuição de 1,5 litros em comparação com o anterior TSi de 170 CV.
[editar] Outras versões
A Volkswagen também produz a versao 3.2 VR6 aspirada do Golf, o conhecido R32.
Comercializado apenas na Europa e Estados Unidos, o carro conta com 240 cv, motor
3.2 litros de 6 cilindros em V de ângulo estreito e tração 4x4 integral, a mesma utilizada
pela Audi.
O Jetta, modelo derivado do Golf I, foi designado na geração seguinte de Vento é
depois designado de Bora (na Europa), que era a sua nomenclatura original. É no fundo
um Golf de três volumes, isto é, distingue-se claramente a frente, o habitáculo e a mala.
Neste modelo a estética frontal e traseira são distintas, mas a plataforma é a mesma.
A Volkswagen apresentou na China o Golf geração IV reestilizado. Com o nome de
Bora HS, o modelo ganhou vincos no capô, que passam pela grade dianteira, pára-
choque e entrada de ar, formando o V que se tornou uma identidade mundial da marca.
Na traseira, as lanternas ganharam elementos circulares e o pára-choque foi
No Brasil, a reestilização apresentada em 2007 seguiu estilo próprio, diferente do
alemão e do chinês, mantendo a plataforma da geração IV por questões de custo. Com
193 cv, o GTi foi o carro mais potente fabricado e vendido no Brasil.
A VW lançou recentemente um modelo desportivo de série limitada, derivado do GTi,
que é o Golf GTi 30th Edition, dotado de 230cv e algumas alterações estéticas em
relação ao mítico GTi.
[editar] Motor
Os motores diesel Volkswagen, que sempre foram conhecidos e apreciados por serem
robustos e económicos, apareceram logo com a primeira versão do Golf, primeiro com
1500cc de capacidade e 50cv e mais tarde com 1600cc e 54cv, tendo este ultimo uma
versão turbo com 70cv, o primeiro GTD, com muitas semelhanças ao já existente GTi.
Este motor 1600cc passou para a geração seguinte Mk2 sem mudanças significativas,
tendo sido apenas acrescentada uma versão gtd com maior pressão no turbo que
produzia cerca de 82cv. Mais tarde, com a geração Mk3, os 1600cc foram abandonados
e instalados motores 1900cc mais modernos e potentes, muito semelhantes aos 1900cc
TDi que são instalados hoje em dia na geração Mk5.
Hoje o Golf usa o propulsor EA111 1.6 8V de 101/104cv e 2.0 8V de 116/120cv ou
com a caixa manual MQ200 (refinada para os padrões brasileiros) ou com o câmbio
automático Tiptronic de 6 marchas.
[editar] Curiosidades
Antes de ser papa, Bento XVI teve um Golf quando era cardeal.
