Volkswagen actively assessments an all-new, raised Golf. We now have seen it in Sweden within the winter, and even on the Nurburgring in Might. Whereas Volkswagen didn’t announce something new within the Golf lineup, we could also be stunned with a brand new Golf-based crossover, or an modern, contemporary, jacked up model of the favored hatchback. As Volkswagen actively seeks out new segments to promote its automobiles in, I can determine at the very least two market brackets the place the brand new Golf-based crossover or only a jacked up hatch may play its half.
When you look intently on the Mercedes-Benz lineup, you possibly can see that its entry-level crossover – the GLA – looks like a jacked-up model of the A-class. If Volkswagen creates one thing much like it, primarily based across the Golf’s fundamental form and chassis, then it might be the one producer on this very tight phase to supply a less expensive different to the GLA.
However, a raised Golf hatch won’t be something greater than only a hatchback model of the upcoming Golf Alltrack. That automobile would straight compete with the cool Ford Focus Lively!
If it involves fruition, this alleged new five-seat crossover will sit between the T-Cross and the T-Roc inside the Volkswagen lineup. Curiously sufficient, Volkswagen did announce an all-new five-seat crossover at its media occasion earlier this 12 months. This would possibly effectively be it, and I’d not be stunned if Germans remodel slow-selling Golf Plus right into a type of a crossover.
