The Volkswagen Golf Mk7 (also known as the Golf VII) is a compact car, the seventh generation of the Volkswagen Golf and the successor to the Volkswagen Golf Mk6. It was announced in Berlin on 4 September 2012, before a public launch at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. Compared to the previous generation, the Golf Mk7 has a roomier cabin, with greater shoulder room for the front and rear passengers, rear legroom and boot space.
The Mk7 Golf includes a lot of new safety features, including Proactive Occupant Protection which will close the windows and retract the safety belts to remove excess slack if the potential for a forward crash is detected. This is also the first series production Volkswagen with a multi-collision brake system to automatically brake the car after an accident in order to avoid a second collision.
Engine options at launch include 1.2 and 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engines, with 84 hp (63 kW) and 138 hp (103 kW) respectively, and 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesel engines, with 104 hp (77 kW) and 148 hp (110 kW) respectively. The 1.6 TDI BlueMotion Concept has a theoretical combined fuel consumption of 3.2 l/100 km (88 mpg-imp; 74 mpg-US) and anticipated 85 g/km CO2 emissions.
