2015 Volkswagen Golf: First Look Video

Volkswagen’s seventh-generation Golf is finally showing face in North America at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

While the majority of details on the car have been available since its European debut in Geneva, it wasn’t clear what the North American specifications would look like.

There will be two gasoline engines in the range: a 1.8-liter direct-injection turbo four with 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque and a 2.0-liter turbo for the sporty GTI variant. Then there’s the 2.0-liter turbo diesel that makes 150 hp but 236 lb-ft of wheel-tugging torque.

Europeans get the new car, which rides on VW’s MQB architecture, for the 2014 model year while North America will wait for an extra trip around the sun.

After the year delay, the car will arrive larger, lighter and more efficient than the outgoing model.
