Volkswagen Golf 1.8T TSI Automatic, the American-centric hatch hopes to do better than the Passat

Apart from being the global top seller, the Volkswagen Golf 1 happens to be the best car in sight today. It also joints the top selling models like Ford F-series, and Toyota Corolla as the top ranked models  of all times.   But the American landscape shows mostly the F-150s and the Toyota Corollas dotting the roads across the country.

The reason behind this is that most of its sale has been achieved in the European continent whose citizens highly appreciate the finesse and sophistication offered by the Golf. These attributes are gradually catching up with the Americans, and they have started to take a liking for this compact vehicle. The new Golf for 2015 is arriving at the US shores which Volkswagen hope would really attract the Americans who are seeking more fuel economy and less priced vehicles, but at the same time getting the solidity of the Audi and comfort level at higher speeds  for that money.

 To satisfy both the European and American customers VW  has shaved some of the weight on the Golf, offered a new four-cylinder turbo in place of the regular 2.5 Liter five-cylinder and increased the number of driver assistance features for the hatchback. To keep the prices down VW h as resorted to assembling this North American Golf at the Mexican plant. 

 

The 10Best ranking for the Golf also proves that adaptation necessarily does not require separation from what made it such a great vehicle. If you remember a similar American-centric move was made by VW with the Passat recently and how much of a mixed bag it was? The vehicle was grown bigger to meet American size standards and was assembled in Tennessee to sell it cheaper. Of course, the sales picked up initially but it stagnated when it faced similar problems that all the German imports come across with. We hope that no such thing will happen with the new 2015 Volkswagen Golf 1.8T TSI Automatic when it comes to America.
