Meet VW's all-new Gol

2008-07-03 07:41

Volkswagen Brazil launched its new Gol, which has been the top-selling car there for 21 years.

More than five million Gols have been sold in Brazil making it more successful than the Beetle. It's the fifth most-produced Volkswagen in the world after the Golf, Passat, Polo and Jetta.
The latest Gol hatchback will get a bakkie and sedan siblings too.

Although the Gol has fresh styling, the biggest changes are under the skin where the former, longitudinal engine layout has been replaced by the transverse Polo/Fox arrangement.

Its suspension setup has been modified too, and the the front suspension and steering column are from the new Seat Ibiza and next Polo.

Its wheelbase is the same as the current Polo's at 2.46m but the Golf offers more passenger room.

VW hasn't ruled out to manufacture the Gol in other developing countries.
