Mk7 Volkswagen Golf spotted on test near Pune

Mk7 Volkswagen Golf spotted on test near Pune

An Mk7 Volkswagen Golf has been spotted on test in Pimpri, near Pune. The car, a left-hand drive model, is a lower spec Bluemotion petrol variant which, by the look of it has been imported to India for global component testing.
The Golf is a four metre plus hatchback with a wheelbase of 2.6-metres making it a significantly spacious vehicle and rivalling (to a certain extent) the proportions of many of our C-segment sedans. 

The company is running initial tests on the car to study its feasibility for the Indian market. If found favourable, then the car is expected to be launched in the next two years and will come here via the CKD route like other MQB models and will be assembled at Aurangabad. However, there is a possibility that VW might move the MQB production to Chakan allowing them to introduce the Golf at a competitive price point. When launched, the Golf will sit under the Jetta in VW hierarchy. 

The Mk7 VW Golf was launched at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. It is based on the German automaker’s MQB platform which it shares with a variety of vehicles like the Audi A3, Seat Leon and the Skoda Octavia.  The silver coloured car in the photos is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder mill most probably in the 84bhp/160Nm state of tune and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
