The 2015 VW Golf should definitely please the "Volks"
From the outside if you look at any new Volkswagen Golf that has ever been introduced over the decades, you would be hard pressed to notice the sea changes that so often go on when these huge selling hatchbacks get redesigned. It’s just that Guigetto Guigaro who penned the first Golf hatchback got the shape so right that Volkswagen has only ever had to tinker with it to attract over 30 million buyers over the years. That’s a lot of people to be pleased by one car.
Over the course of the life of the Volkswagen Golf outside of the United States it has grown to be a powerhouse in the international diesel hatch sales market, most especially in Europe. But it wasn't until Volkswagen of America decided to reintroduce its latest generation 2.0 liter turbodiesel engine, itself already legendary for its efficiency and durability, to North American buyers with memories of smelly, loud and slow diesels from the 1970’s and 1980’s.
