Once on the CrossPolo revealed from last week, Volkswagen has now taken a new CrossGolf blanket, which is also scheduled to make its world debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show 2010. In addition to bringing the latest Golf model family to the sixth count, the range now includes the standard Golf, longer wheelbase Golf Plus, Golf Variant wagon and the sporty Golf GTI and the new Golf R.
As CrossPolo, new CrossGolf is basically a five-door hatchback with a raised ride height and rugged all terrain look. However, not based on a standard Golf but the Golf Plus a little bigger.
Compact turbocharged engine lineup consists of gasoline and diesel engines, with outputs ranging from 105 horsepower in the base model with 160 horsepower in the range-top. A six-speed manual as standard but customers came to choose Volkswagen's brilliant seven-speed DSG dual clutch transmission.
Key design elements include unique bumpers, finished in anthracite color and equipped with fog lights and a larger reception. Move to the side, which also got CrossGolf black wheelarch extensions, new side sills, silver side mirrors and 17-inch alloy wheels. Options include leather trim, headlights bi-xenon, a glass camera and Volkswagen nifty Park Assist feature.
Currently there are no plans to bring a new Volkswagen CrossGolf to the U.S. but we will likely see the version of the Golf Variant wagon used to make the road to the local showroom last.
