Other 2015 Volkswagen Golf Models
Three additional 2015 Golf models will start arriving toward the end of 2014. First to roll into showrooms will be the new e-Golf, an electric version of the Golf 4-door with an estimated range of 80 miles on a single charge. To help eliminate range anxiety, the worry that an electric car's driver experiences when the battery charge level drops, Volkswagen will include a unique roadside assistance program as standard equipment. Volkswagen will announce how to obtain the new e-Golf closer to the car's on-sale date.
The new Golf R is the most powerful production Golf model ever offered to Volkswagen's North American consumers. Equipped with a 290-horsepower, turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, a DSG, and a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, the new 2015 Golf R will accelerate to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, according to Volkswagen. This 4-door model goes on sale in the first part of 2015, and VW will announce pricing closer to the car's arrival.
A new Golf SportWagen arrives at about the same time as the Golf R, replacing the Jetta SportWagen. Completely redesigned, and larger inside and out, the new Golf SportWagen offers a standard turbocharged, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine or a turbocharged, 2.0-liter diesel engine. Volkswagen will announce prices in advance of the Golf SportWagen's on-sale date.
