Finally, Americans might be able to get their pudgy hands upon the diesel VQ Golf, one of the hottest hatchbacks ever roll along the gray roads of a grayer Europe.
The publication Car and Driver says that VW is “seriously contemplating” bringing a sportier version of the Golf diesel to American shores to be offered alongside its GTI model. If this invasion occurs, Americans will finally have access to a Golf that is more powerful than the 140-horsepower Golf that is currently being sold in the U.S. There is also a good chance that the yet-to-be released Golf will earn more than the 34/42 mpg that the present Yank model does. With that combo of performance and economy, this baby may just make next year’s list of top cars that mix performance w/ mpg.
