Volkswagen Golf

 from 1974 to 2016

Volkswagen Golf road car

1974 : Generation 1

Like its predecessor the Volkswagen Beetle, the Volkswagen Golf Mk1 has proven to be influential.
In continuous production since 1974, the Golf was one of the first widely successful front-wheel drive hatchbacks.
In the USA, the Morris Mini, Honda N360 and Fiat 128 saw only limited success, but it was the Rabbit, along with the Honda Civic that sparked another generation of European-derived front-wheel drive American compacts, such as the Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Ford Escort and Chevrolet Cavalier in ...

1983 : Generation 2

The second-generation Volkswagen Golf (also known as the Typ 19E until the 1991 model year, and Typ 1G thereafter) was launched in Europe at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1983.
It debuted in 1984 in the UK, and it was introduced as a 1985 model in the US.
It featured a larger bodyshell, and a wider range of engine options, including a GTD turbodiesel (in Euro markets, later using the 1.6 "umwelt" (ECO) diesel engine), a DOHC 1781 cc (1.8) 16-valve version of the straight-four GTI (as well as the tr ...

1991 : Generation 3

The third-generation Volkswagen Golf Mk3 was a car launched in Europe in November 1991 (though not in the United Kingdom until March 1992), and in North America in the spring of 1993.
The delay in North America was due to Volkswagen's decision to supply U.S.
and Canadian dealerships with Mk3 Golfs (and A3 Jettas) from the VW plant in Puebla, Mexico.
Quality control problems led Volkswagen of America to reject Golfs and Jettas from Mexico; shortly thereafter labor unrest at the plant delayed production ther ...

1997 : Generation 4

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 ...

2003 : Generation 5

While the interior quality of the previous Volkswagen Golf Mk4 startled rivals, and led most of them to up their game in revised/replacement models, the chassis dynamics and all round ability of the Mk1 Ford Focus startled Volkswagen (and indeed other rivals).
In order to counter criticisms of the average dynamics of the previous model, it is widely reputed that Volkswagen poached from Ford the engineering team who designed the multi-link control blade independent rear suspension system, the class benchmar ...
