VW Golf

BLOOMBERG

VW's Golf -- a cornerstone of the automaker's global product lineup -- undergoes an extreme makeover for 2013. It goes on sale initially in Europe later this year and arrives in the United States in the first half of 2014. VW says key improvements on the latest, seventh generation compact include a larger interior with extra rear legroom and more cargo space; upgraded safety systems, including a feature called multicollision braking; revamped information and entertainment systems; a lower-weight, modular platform; and a family of engines that consume 18 percent less fuel.
