If you are like us you probably have dreams of owning each example of the VW Golf since the first generation. Well time to make plans on owning a seventh.

Over the weekend VW debuted the latest version of the highly successful model. Loosing 220 lb. and gaining safety, comfort and fuel efficiency (23%) the new Golf is the biggest to date.

Exterior wise a strong shoulder line has been added as well as refined front and rear bumper design treatments. Inside has received the surgeons touch with sculpted seats and dash.

More importantly is the prospect of a base model 1.4L turbocharged engine, but VW has yet to confirm of such an engine in the U.S. Rumors suspect the return of a 1.8T (crossing-fingers).

All we know is we want to get our hands on one to see what kind of tuning potential the Mk7 will posses. We think a competition is in order soon. Stay tuned.
