Volkswagen already announced that the business cycles of their models would be seriously reduced. In this way, the Golf, as the flagship of the range German, you should see in 2018 a new generation. It seems, however, that before you will get a update of the Volkswagen Golf, a restyling is expected for the end of this year. We already know one of the novelties, new range of thrusters diesel and gasoline of 1.5 liters.
In an interview Motoring in the Hall of Detroit, Herbert Diess, CEO of the brand Volkswagen, announced the arrival of a new generation of engines 1.5 that will replace a good part of the range that we now know. Will the work of relieve the 1.6 TDI and at least some 2.0 TDI. In the case of gasoline, the 1.4 TSI will say goodbye thanks to this new generation.
there are Not too many details, but it is a strategy already seen in other manufacturers. The same engine will pick up an wide range of powers, which could range from 110 horsepower up to 180 horses. Various improvements or a specific electronic are the keys of a new family of engines that share the front either gasoline or diesel. This is also what we have already seen in other manufacturers as the engines modular BMW.
This new family of engines 1.5 of Volkswagen will be a evolution of the 1.4 TSI and the 1.6 TDI, therefore according to us account Herbert Diess is not a development from scratch. Not in vain, also points to a the higher cost of production that the current units. You may all have to do with more advanced technology.
The advantage will be, according to Diess, will be a weight saving and increased efficiency, so that expected consumption is notably lower in this update of the Volkswagen Golf. Logically these mechanics will come to other models like the Passat or even the Polo. Will have to wait, that yes, to 2017, because, although it is expected a Golf updated to the end of this year, it will not be until the next when they are available.
