Updated Golf Mark 7.5 gets revised engines and equipment levels

Volkswagen Australia has confirmed that the updated Volkswagen Golf, dubbed as the Volkswagen Golf Mark 7.5, will hit Australian showrooms from July 2017. The Golf Mark 7.5 is the first Golf generation to have a mid-life update, with the German brand traditionally opting to release a heavily revised or all-new model every few years.

The Dieselgate saga has delayed the release of the Golf Mark 8, and the Mark 7.5 upgrade is designed to keep the Golf range fresh. Standard equipment fitted to all Golf Mark 7.5 models now include emergency braking and alloy wheels and the entry level 92kW version of the 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine has been dumped, and replaced with the more powerful 110kW/250Nm offering.

Minor styling changes are expected, and more expensive models will get clever tech such as gesture control for the infotainment systems.
