Countdown to the new Golf: the Golf Mk5 – it's come of age

This was the Golf generation offering comfort and dynamics that went beyond those of quite a number of competitors within the upper mid-sized vehicle class. The same rang true for quality. A value that underlines the stability of the laser-welded body is that its torsional rigidity had increased by 35 percent in 2003 upon the debut of the Golf Mk5. This also marked the first time that the Golf was optionally available with side airbags in the rear – in conjunction with the standard airbags (front, sides at the front, head-protection airbag) this now meant that eight of these protecting, inflatable pads were on board the vehicle.

Countdown to the new Golf: Golf Mk 4 – the style icon

Its clear-cut and precise design characterised the brand more than ever before and set the course for the Volkswagen of the future: The Golf Mk 4 was developed in the mid 90s under the direction of the Volkswagen Head Designer at the time, Hartmut Warkuß. Today, design experts consider it a style icon that was pioneering for the product line. This also comes as a result of this particular generation’s uncompromisingly clear-cut lines and the product line’s striking C-pillar design that bridged the gap to the 1974 Golf Mk1.

Volkswagen Group delivers more vehicles in September

In September, the Volkswagen Group delivered 904,200 vehicles to customers throughout the world, corresponding to a significant rise of 9.2 per-cent compared with September 2018. In a shrinking overall global market, the Group continued to significantly expand its market shares. As expected, this development was driven by Europe (+31.0 percent) and Germany (+58.1 percent). Here, deliveries had been at an unusually low level in September 2018 as a result of restricted vehicle availability following the changeover to the new WLTP type approval procedure. In the regions of North America and Asia-Pacific, the Volkswagen Group succeeded in slightly expanding its market shares in shrinking overall markets. In South America, the Group markedly boosted deliveries in contrast to the decreasing overall market and therefore significantly expanded its market share. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales: “In the current economic and geopolitical environment, which is tense, our strong brands are once again proving to be especially valuable. They offer our customers security for their purchasing decisions and therefore lay the foundation for the continual expansion of our global market share.”

Thompson, have approved a request from the company for more time to demonstrate that it has met its commitments under the terms of Volkswagen’s 2017 settlement with the U.S. Government.

Countdown to the new Golf: Golf Mk3 – a pioneer in safety systems

From August 1991, Volkswagen kickstarted a new era of safety with the third generation of the Golf. The Mk3 Golf was the product line’s first model to be available with front airbags, from 1992, and furthermore, large steps forward in body design also led to significantly improved crash properties. With the Golf Mk3, Volkswagen democratised passive safety, as the improved protection it offered benefited many people.
