End of 2012, the wait finally come to an end and the new seventh generation of the compact class and on the market. Of course, the new VW Golf will be available in all major versions, even if the end in 2012, is open. What is certain is that it the VW Golf 7 as an electric car, hybrid and gas type model. This probably also a new GTI is planned.
