2014 Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI

The European models of what we'll see as the 2014 Volkswagen Golf are 2.2 inches longer, half an inch wider, and 1.1 inches lower than their predecessors.Their rear legroom, shoulder room, and elbow room are all increased compared to the outgoing Golf, and cargo space rises slightly as well (by 1 cubic foot).standard electronic parking brake cuts cabin clutter and adds interior space. 


The mix of standard and optional features to be offered on U.S. versions is still being finalized, but the European model offers several new capabilities not found in previous Golf models. Optional features on European versions include adaptive cruise control, a new automatic parking system, and selectable driver profiles to alter the car's performance settings.


Today's Golf offers a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that puts out 170 horsepower with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic, while the current Volkswagen GTI comes with a 200-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four and either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.

Volkswagen has also added Front Assist with city emergency braking, which will automatically brake the car to a stop from urban speeds (below 30 mph or so) if it senses the car is about to collide with an object directly ahead.
