Meet the New Golf RThe International Car of the Year just got a steroid injection... The new Golf R will be released in the Northern Hemisphere in April in a five door format with a choice of 6-speed manual or DSG transmission. Need a reason to buy one? How about 221? As in 221 kW of power that will crack open 100 km/hr in under 5 seconds with the DSG transmission. Worried about a bit of slip and slide? Don't. Traction is well looked after by an updated 4MOTION AWD system and an upgraded diff setup called XDS+. Pumped about a bit of slip and slide? Just turn off the traction control. Good luck!
Rave Review for 2014 VW Golf 7ENGINES / TRANSMISSIONS As with the Golf 7 hatch the new wagon comes with the choice of three turbocharged engines, two petrol and one diesel. In VW tradition the model names are used to specify the maximum power output of each engines in kilowatts. The entry level 90 TSI having a 1.4-litre 90 kW petrol engine, the 103 TSI with same engine tweaked to 103 kW and the 110 TDI a 2.0-litre 110 kW diesel. Even better numbers are the peak torque outputs of 200 Nm, 250 Nm and 320 Nm respectively. Unlike the hatch which gets the option of a manual gearbox in the 90 TSI the wagons only come with Volkswagen's DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission, six-speed with the petrol models and seven-speed with the diesel. Golf 7 uses Volkswagen's BlueMotion technology which includes stop/start engine, brake energy recuperation, gearshift recommendation and intelligent thermal management. MODELS Four variants are offered. The 90 TSI comes as a base model and with Comfortline equipment while the top-spec Highline is now available in a Golf wagon for the first time and is the only option with the 103 TSI and 110 TDI engines. INTERIOR There's good space within the new Golf for up to five moderate-sized adults with acceptable rear legroom. Boot space is an impressive 605 litres (100 litres more than the previous model) with the rear seats in place rising to 1620 litres (from 1495) with the rear seatbacks folded. Apart from the normal cargo blind that can be extended horizontally from the top of the rear seat to the rear window Golf 7 wagon also gets a protective curtain that clips onto the back of the folded rear seat and extends up to the roof. Cleverly, both the cargo blind and safety curtain can be stored in moulded supports located below the cargo floor and above the space saver spare wheel. SAFETY Golf 7 wagon comes with all the safety features we expect, including seven airbags; ABS brakes with Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution; hill hold; tyre pressure monitoring and a multi-collision braking system that applies the brakes to prevent or minimise a subsequent impact when the car has been involved in a collision. There's also a fatigue detection system that assesses the driver's style in the early stages of a trip and then continually checks for any significant change that could indicate that their concentration is deteriorating. Isofix child seat anchorage points are fitted on the outer rear seats. Rear parking sensors are optional on the 90TSI with front/rear sensors and a reversing camera standard in the Comfortline and Highline variants. INFOTAINMENT Two display modes are used, both based on a 5.6-inch colour touch screen that operates in similar fashion to smartphones with swiping and pinching gestures. Composition Media is standard on the entry level 90 TSI and both Comfortline models; with Discover Media optional with Comfortline and standard in Highline. Composition Media interacts with the AM/FM radio; Bluetooth phone and audio streaming as well as displaying driver information. Discover Media adds satellite navigation. There is a CD player but with declining usage it been hidden away inside the glovebox alongside SD slots for both music and SatNav data. FEATURES Standard across the range are roof rails; daytime running lights; rear fog lights; cruise control; leather trimmed steering wheel and gear lever; and height and reach steering wheel adjustment. The 90TSI Comfortline adds dual zone air; storage drawers under the front seats; rain sensor windscreen wipers; 12V socket in the cargo area; and a rear-seat centre armrest with cup holders. As well as the higher level infotainment features the two Highline models get chrome highlights on the lower air intake; side windows and roof rails; and Alcantara cloth seats. Alloy wheels are 15-inch in the 90TSI, 16-inch in the Comfortline and 17-inch in the Highline. The optional Driver Assistance Package ($1300) available on Comfortline and Highline adds Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Park Assist. DRIVING We tested the Golf 7 wagon on a varied drive through suburban areas and hill country on the launch, and it showed that a wagon can be both functional and fun to drive. Our route included some interesting twists and turns that were handled with ease. The three torquey engines are all so responsive that it's easy to forget that they are turbocharged. Cruising on the open road and motorways was as smooth, comfortable and quiet as in many large family cars that we've driven. While large family sedans have been the most prominent victims of the current SUV craze station wagons have also suffered. Which doesn't make a lot of sense because apart from their higher driving position the current crop of small SUVs don't offer any significant advantages over Euro-style wagons such as the new Golf. They certainly don't come close to matching the driving enjoyment. VERDICT Could move a lot of buyers over from the small SUV part of the showroom.

The Golf R a Racing SensationWorld Rally Championship-leading driver, Sebastien Ogier has caused a stir after featuring in a video driving the new Volkswagen MK7 Golf R. In what is described as a stunning video clip, a ‘race track’ janitor stumbles across the new Golf R and gets the ride of his life with Ogier at the wheel. Volkswagen released the promotional clip of what is regarded as the most powerful production Golf ever to allow enthusiasts to view the anticipated car ahead of its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week. The car, which is powered by an electric motor mounted in the engine bay, produces 85kW and 270Nm of torque and offers an impressive driving range of 190kms of one charge. Within just 48 hours, the Youtube video generated 95,000 hits and gives an indication of just how strong the demand is for this unreleased car, a Volkwagen spokesperson says. Introduction and pricing details for the Australian market are due to be announced early next year.
Jetta Hybrid “Engine of the Year” for the 7th time
The Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid engine has been awarded the “Engine of the Year” for the 7th time in a row at the International Engine Technology competition. VW walked away with not one but two awards, winning the “Best New Engine Award” for the best engine development in the past 12 months!
The “Best New Engine Award” is for VW’s work to include cylinder deactivation on the TSI engine. This innovation more efficiently uses powerful larger engines like V-8 and V-12s engines only when it is necessary. With the use of a cylinder deactivation these engines can run on four cylinders when called for and successfully save a substantial amount of fuel for the consumer.
Volkswagen has been recognised for many awards by the 87 international trade journalists who make up the committee. According to Hybridcars.com, “since 2006, Volkswagen has received a total of 12 trophies from the “Engine of the Year” jury for the constantly enhanced 1.4-liter TSI engine with the internal designation EA 211 – seven class victories, two overall victories, two ‘Best New Engine’ awards and one ‘Green Engine of the Year’ award.”
Come and test drive the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid and experience for yourself why it has been named engine of the year!
