NEW GENERATION BEETLE REVEALED AT SHANGHAI SHOW
New generation of Volkswagen Beetle unveiled in Shanghai, New York and
All-new vehicle draws design cues from original Beetle launched 73
Efficient engines and innovative features combine with heritage to make
a 'modern classic'
On sale in North America in autumn 2011, then mainland Europe; UK early
Volkswagen has unveiled the latest generation Beetle in Shanghai on the eve
of the city's motor show, marking a new era in this iconic car's history.
The latest generation moves away from design of the New Beetle of 1998 and
instead draws on cues from the original and Beetle Ragster concept shown in
Detroit in 2005. As such it's longer, wider and lower, giving a more
masculine and dynamic appearance.
The Beetle now measures 4,278 mm in length (+152 mm), 1,808 mm in width
(+84 mm) and 1,486 in height (-12 mm). The track width front and rear, as
well as the wheelbase at 2,537 mm, are also increased. Overseen by Walter
de Silva (Volkswagen Group) and Klaus Bischoff (Volkswagen Brand), with
Marc Lichte the team leader for exterior design, the car's new proportions
mean the roof extends back further, the windscreen is shifted back and the
rear section is now more akin to that of the original Beetle. The boot
capacity is a practical 310 litres, up from 209 litres in the 1998 model.
The Beetle has four seats, with a split-fold rear seat for added
Inside the cabin, the Beetle's designers created a modern, practical and
distinctive appearance with easy to identify and ergonomic controls.
Certain features, such as the glovebox and colour accent panels hark back
to the original.
Three trim levels will be available - Beetle, Design and Sport - and each
will be endowed with its own individual character and features. A wide
range of innovative optional equipment will also be available, ranging from
Keyless Access through satellite navigation systems and a panoramic sunroof
to bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights - all of which are
available for the first time on a Beetle.
In the UK, a choice of four engines will be offered: three petrol - a
1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, a 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS and a 2.0-litre TSI 200 PS;
and one diesel - a 1.6-litre 105 PS with BlueMotion Technology. Thanks to
the addition of Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems the Beetle
1.6-litre 105 PS is estimated to have a combined fuel consumption of 65.7
mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 112 g/km.
As well as being economical and environmentally sound, the Beetle is also
built to be one of the safest cars on the road thanks not only to features
such as standard ESP and six airbags but also a laser-welded and galvanised
body structure which has one of the highest torsional rigidity values in
the segment at 26,000 Nm/?. In addition the range-topping engine, the
2.0-litre 200 PS, will feature standard XDS electronic differential lock as
fitted to the Golf GTI.
The new car will be available to order in the UK in the summer, with first
cars arriving in showrooms early in 2012. More details will be available
closer to launch.
When the original was launched in 1938, it was known simply as 'the
Volkswagen', quickly acquiring a raft of nicknames from across the world.
Whatever the name, its popularity is not in question, with 21.5 million
sold in the past 73 years.
Volkswagen Golf GTI 35 Edition - Are you GTI Enought ? First Official Promo
Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35
World debut at Wörthersee: 235 PS Golf GTI Edition 35 offers pure dynamic
Volkswagen celebrates 35 years of the GTI with 247 km/h special edition
Golf GTI Edition 35 has powerful 6 kg/PS and economical 8.1 l/100 km
Wolfsburg / Reifnitz, 31 May 2011 -- 35 years of the Golf GTI! Volkswagen
is celebrating the anniversary of this icon with the new Golf GTI Edition
35. 173 kW / 235 PS of power (25 PS more than the normal GTI) and a fast
247 km/h top speed; 6 kg/PS power density. It will be a collector's item
from day one -- arriving right on the 35th anniversary of the GTI legend.
Back in the summer of 1976 -- when the very first production GTI was
launched -- no one ever would have surmised what Volkswagen had just
unleashed. No one. Not even Volkswagen itself. Some things simply cannot be
planned -- icons included. And so the first Golf GTI surprised everyone:
buyers, competitors, the carmaker and -- on the Autobahn -- all those
drivers of other sports cars and luxury saloons who had never heard of such
a thing from Volkswagen, but were now being passed by it. Since then, the
GTI advanced to become the most successful compact sports car in automotive
history. 5,000 GTIs were planned -- yet the GTI of our day is irrepressibly
approaching the production milestone of 2 million units built!
6.6 seconds for the sprint. Now, the new Golf GTI Edition 35 is proving the
potential of this automobile. As always, it has front-wheel drive and
offers nonstop road grip thanks to its XDS electronic differential lock.
The Volkswagen converts each and every one of its maximum of 300 Newton
metres of torque (2,200 to 5,500 rpm) into forward propulsion. After just
6.6 seconds, the Golf GTI Edition 35 passes the 100 km/h mark. No other GTI
before it has been this dynamic. An optional 6-speed DSG can shift gears in
fractions of a second.
The engine of the Golf GTI Edition 35
235 PS and 300 Nm. When 173 kW / 235 PS of power (+ 25 PS compared to the
normal GTI; maximum power from 5,500 to 6,300 rpm) and a torque of 300 Nm
(+ 20 Nm; maximum torque from 2,200 to 5,500 rpm) act on the car with a
kerb weight of 1,400 kg, this unleashes vehicle dynamics that match those
of a purebred sports car in any measure of performance. Its acceleration
(0-100 km/h in 6.6 s) and top speed (247 km/h) are the usual statistical
measures, but much more important and typical of this GTI is its relentless
torque in every speed range. Step into the GTI, adjust the ergonomically
fitting sport seats and the sport steering wheel, turn on the ignition (by
key or optionally by button press) and a storm breaks loose. Acoustically
too: the GTI already has a full sporty sound, but new tuning of the sound
actuator makes it even sportier. Clearly, to discover the true potential of
the GTI machine, each owner of the new Golf GTI Edition 35 should really
visit -- at least once and with all due respect -- the North Loop of the
Nürburgring race course.
1,984 cm3 displacement. The engine employed in the Golf GTI Edition 35 is a
turbocharged petrol direct-injection
engine of the EA113 engine series. Those of you who are now thinking of the
all-wheel drive Golf R are on the right track. The two vehicles share the
same base engine. The 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine builds up its
propulsive power via a turbocharger with
intercooling. The GTI engine is controlled by a fully electronic engine
management system with E-Gas. The engine's pistons are equipped with
reinforced gudgeon pins. The connecting rod was also designed with greater
strength, so that it can reliably transfer high torque to the crankshaft.
The cylinder block was reinforced to handle the extremely high engine
forces that occur.
8.0 l/100 km with DSG. Despite all of its dynamic performance, the Golf GTI
Edition 35 is also efficient at combusting its preferred fuel (Super, 95
ROZ). The new GTI with manual gearbox offers a respectable combined fuel
consumption of 8.1 litres per 100 km (equivalent to 189 g/km CO2). In the
DSG version, these two values are improved to 8.0 l/100 km and 185 g/km
