The Volkswagen Golf is actually a small family car manufactured by Volkswagen since 1974 and marketed worldwide across six generations, in various body configurations and under various nameplates - considering that the Volkswagen Rabbit in the United States and Canada (Mk1 and Mk5), in addition to the Volkswagen Caribe in Mexico (Mk1). The front-wheel drive Golf was Volkswagen's first successful replacement to get the air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle. Historically, it truly is Volkswagen's best-selling model and the world's third best-selling model, much more than than 25 million built by 2007.
Most production belonging to the Golf was initially involved in the 3-door hatchback style. Other variants include a 5-door hatchback, estate/wagon (Variant, from 1993), convertible (Cabriolet and Cabrio, 1979-2002), as well as a Golf-derived notchback saloon/sedan, variously called Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Vento or Volkswagen Bora (from 1979). The cars have filled many market segments, from basic personal cars, to high-performance hot hatches. The Golf name is derived from the German word for Gulf Stream - along with the period in its history when VW named vehicles after prominent winds, including also the Passat (following on from the German word for Trade wind), Jetta (as soon as the Jet stream), Bora (after Bora) and Scirocco (after Sirocco). "Golf" can be a sport, a theme may possibly be shared together with the Volkswagen Polo.
Every generation of Golf is really a runner-up in to the European Car of the season awards, but just one single has become a winner, the Golf Mk3 in 1992. Launched in 1999, the Volkswagen Golf Mk4 (or VW Typ 1J) was the very best selling car in Europe in 2001 (though it slipped to second place, behind the Peugeot 206, in 2002). The Mk4 was a deliberate make an work to take the Volkswagen Golf series further upmarket, who has a high-quality interior and higher equipment levels. Overall the quality of maturity belonging to the design as well as target audience were also evident - the humorous plays found on the movie which resulted in special edition models of the three earlier generations being called "Golf Ryder", "Golf Driver", to not ever mention the GTI's "golf ball" gearlever knob were dropped, and replaced that has a more subtly styled golf ball knob.It was replaced in 2004 by the Volkswagen Golf Mk5.
The Golf Mk4 would have been a significant car in its class. With regards to its big brother, not only was it site of Volkswagen moving its products upmarket to plug a gap between the mainstream machines and then the premium cars, with SEAT and Škoda taking over just like the mainstream inside of a new level of interior quality and sophistication never seen before due to a mainstream brand while in the class. The fact is that, the products the Golf was on a par with its sister Audi A3 by means of year before, but cost considerably far more than other cars in its class.The latest model remained faithful in direction of Golf concept but included a few of the new "arched" styling themes first seen found on the Mk4 Passat
Volkswagen spawned a saloon version belonging to the Mk4 Golf. As with previous incarnations of the Golf, it had specific to it identity, and also this time was referred to as Volkswagen Bora and also the name Jetta remained in Canada And America and South Africa. Unlike its predecessors, the Bora/Jetta featured unique rear doors, front wings and bonnet. The front doors were truly the only body panels it shared together with the Golf. The interior, though, was almost the same as the Golf, featuring very minor styling changes like its predecessor. Germany, Republic Of South Africa, Slovakia, Brazil, Belgium, and China all made the Golf 4. Eastern European locations making the Golf 4 included Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Vogošca (near Sarajevo), which also made Mk1 and Mk2 models. However, as well as the Bosnian Mk4 was popular it was pretty only that make up the local market.
The Golf/Jetta Mk4 engine choices included 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.3 litre V5, 2.8 litre V6 and 3.2 litre R32 petrol engines, along with a 1.9 litre turbodiesel, with power covering anything from 68 to 150 PS (50 to 110 kW). Volkswagen made a choice of three and five-door hatchback or maybe a five-door station wagon available. The European Golf wagon was nearly the same as its northern border American Jetta Wagon. The actual only real difference was the employment of the Golf front headlights, bumpers, grille, and fenders due to the fact parts are interchangeable relating to the Mk4 Golf and Bora/Jetta.
The Golf 4 was introduced to Canada And America in mid-1999. Available engines for any of the Golf at its introduction on to the American market were a 2.0 L gasoline engine, as well as a thrifty (48mpg) 1.9 L TDI engine. The latter soon developed a good reputation for good low-speed torque and miles per gallon, as well as operate on alternative biofuels. In 2004 the updated 1.9L TDI PD or "Pumpe-Düse" engine was set up on the Golf and Jetta. The "Pumpe-Düse" or Pump Nozzle had been a Robert Bosch extreme high pressure fuel injection system for direct cylinder injection. A 1.8 L turbocharged gas engine was introduced in 2000, as well as 12-valve 2.8 L VR6. In addition, the 1.6 L 8-valve unit was replaced while using the 16-valve unit originating from a Polo GTI, but detuned to 77 kW (105 PS). The 2.0 L gasoline engine was the beds base engine active in the sportier GTI only just like a 1999.5 model. For 2000, Volkswagen opted to get a relatively new 1.8 L turbocharged gasoline engine to be a base engine to get a GTI. The top-of-the-line GLX model was backed up with Volkswagen's torquey 2.8 L VR6, which put out an impressive 174 hp (130 kW). The VR6 engine, because of its narrow 15-degree Vee design, was unique to Volkswagen. This engine is shorter and lighter (featuring a single cylinder head) than other V6 engines which benefits the handling characteristics of this front-wheel drive car. To make the 2002.5 model year Volkswagen introduced a 24-valve version of the company's VR6 engine. This engine had the exact same torque characteristics belonging to the older 12-valve version, with an extra 26 hp (19 kW). The 1.8T and VR6 models continued until 2005, when the Mk4 platform came to an end in North America. Both the Mk4 Golf and then the Mk4 Jetta are still in production in Brazil, Mexico, and China as of 2008. The Brazilian Golf TDI PD was sold in Canada because popularity just like a full 2006 models in base, GL and GLS trim levels for any of the full model year as there was clearly no diesel engine versions for a particular North American 2007 Mk5 Golf (Rabbit). In Europe, trim levels were country-specific, although some people might markets got E, S, SE, GTI and V5/V6/V6 4MOTION versions. The V5 was that make up 150 bhp (110 kW) and 170 bhp (130 kW) versions
