The 2014 Volkswagen Golf gets all new underpinnings this year, courtesy of VW’s MQB architecture, and it was just unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

The new Golf looks a little slicker this year thanks to a redesigned front fascia, while the interior benefits from some black, premium feeling accents. The weight loss also helps to contribute to improved fuel efficiency, which the brand claims will be up by about 23 percent. For all the info, watch the first look video below.

    Fine. Where is our government to stop this crap from happening? Why doesn't the USA deserve the most efficient diesel engine? The government is the only thing that can force VW to export the TDI that gives greater than 50 mpg!
