Next-generation VW Golf to get smaller entry level engine

The six-generation Volkswagen Golf will get a new entry level engine after it makes its debut in October. According to Volkswagen’s manager for powertrain research, Wolfgang Steiger, besides the 1.4 TSI, the new Golf will also offer a 1.0 or 1.2 liter engine that will produce 75 horsepower.

The final displacement depends on whether V-dub goes for a three-cylinder or four-cylinder engine. The new base engine will not reach the market until next year, he said.

Steiger also said that the six-generation Volkswagen Golf will also features option such as automatic vehicle-interval control from the Phaeton and Touareg and parking assistance from the Touran and Tiguan.

As reported last month, Volkswagen will also bring back the convertible Golf with the six-generation model.
