The new Volkswagen Golf 7 will go into production in August. The news has been reported by Automotive News, stating that the car will be built in the German factories of Zwickau and Wolfsburg. The model is expected to be launched in Europe in November, after the official unveiling at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
According to the site, Volkswagen will use the summer months to convert their production lines to the MQB modular platform. The new Golf is the second car of the group to use the new architecture, following the Audi A3 displayed at the last Geneva Motor Show.
Among the most interesting technologies featuring on the Volkswagen Golf MK7, equipped with a 1.4-litre TSI engine with 140 hp, are a cylinder shut-down system for maximum economy and a Start & Stop system.
