Next-Gen VW Golf to Arrive at the End of 2012

VW is going to release the seventh generation of the VW Golf at the end of 2012 or early 2013 according to a VW spokesman.

The VW spokesman responded to a report that stated that the next Golf would arrive by November 2012. Although the report stated a November launch, the spokesman stated that a specific month has not been determined. Instead we can just expect it sometime around the end of 2012.

The next VW Golf will be the first VW model that will be based on the new more efficient modular transverse platform, known internally as the MQB. The new platform will eventually be used on several models within the VW family, the first of which will be the new Audi A3 that will debut in the summer of 2012. VW is expecting savings in the double-digit percentage in large part because of a new production process.
