Spy Shots: China-made Volkswagen Golf 7 seen in Beijing

A completely naked China-made Volkswagen 7 was seen in an underground parking lot in Beijing, with temporarily license-plates behind the windows. This kind of license plates are often used for vehicle-testing. The Golf 7 will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September and it will be launched on the China car market in October.

The Volkswagen Golf is made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. Volkswagen has big plans with the 7. It will be made in the existing factory in Changchun that also makes the outgoing Golf 6, and in a new factory in Foshan in Guangdong Province.

New reports, including the latest, indicate the old 1.6 will continue in the Golf 7 as a budget-engine. Earlier on we heard the 1.6 would be replaced by a new 1.2 TSI, but that doesn’t seem so. The other engines for the 7 are the 1.4 TSI and the 2.0 TSI.
