Volkswagen Golf 7 hits the China car market
Published on December 11, 2013 by Joey Wang
The Volkswagen Golf 7 has been launched on the China car market. Price starts at 121.900 yuan and ends at 182.900 yuan. The Volkswagen Golf 7 is made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. The Golf 7 will also be manufactured in a new factory in the city of Foshan in Guangdong Province and in the existing Volkswagen production base city of Changchun in Jilin Province.
Engines: 105hp 1.6, 131hp 1.4 TSI, 150hp 1.4 TSI, and a 220hp 2.0 TSI for the Volkswagen Golf GTI.
Volkswagen hopes that the new factory in southern China will open the rich southern markets for the Volkswagen and Audi brands. Volkswagen is traditionally strong in the northeast around Beijing and Changchun and in the east around Shanghai, but the deep south is less-conquered territory for the mighty German brand. The Foshan factory will make various Volkswagen and Audi cars, including the new Audi A3 sedan.
