Many consider the Orchid one of the most beautiful flowers; It comes in different shapes, sizes, and colours.
Many consider the VW Golf one of the most reliable cars; It also comes in different shapes, sizes and colours.
Drivers have different needs, likings, and diverse personalities. Automakers have learned to accommodate the great multitude of requests and requirements by offering options. It is said that, counting the various colors and small variations in equipment, barely a handful of identical cars leave the assembly line of one factory in one year.
With the onset of ‘platforms’, a variety of models can be produced with the same running gear.
Volkswagen has taken this one-step further with the “Modular Transverse Matrix”. Numerous types of similar cars can be built, where only the measurement from the center of the front wheel to the ‘pedal box’ is identical; this link has more on that.
The fine distinction between owning the car of your dreams, and enjoying driving “your” dream-car, is like “having your cake and eating it too”; Volkswagen is making that dream a reality by making a Golf with the characteristics that fit your personality best.
Among the variations coming from the plant in “Golfsburg” City are the BlueMotion, eMotion, 4Motion, the Variant, known here previously as ‘stationwagon’ – or ‘crossover’ more recently. Then there are the sporty GTI and the frugal AND sporty GTD. They are even available as ‘topless’ models, ‘Kabriolet’ in Europe or convertible in North America. Literally, a Golf for every taste and trait:
If you are the proverbial ‘steadfast personality’, you might consider the standard Golf. But what is standard these days? Colors and options galore allow anyone to have the car of their dreams.
Your thing is versatility, you commute during the week, but crave the outdoors on the weekend; the Variant might be your choice. The versatile Wagen was also called ‘Kombi’ at one time.
Self-confidence is your strong suit, you like to travel and visit far places – the GTD may be ‘the type for your type’; you are confident that you will not run out of ‘gas’.
Go-getters will do well with the GTI: sporty, elegant, refined yet modest, fast and safe, adventurous and reliable, a car for all seasons, a car for all reasons.
You love the wind blowing in your hair, the sun shining from the sky. The Kabriolet lets you experience nature to the fullest. Warm and cosy in winter, still a Golf — with an attitude.
The authoritative person might appreciate the fact that you are in charge of the Golf Plus. Quality, comfort, and all manner of safety features let you enjoy your car, your trip and your life.
Environmental responsibility is your goal: not only saving money by saving fuel, you feel responsible for reducing emission to have a greener planet (literally) and doing your part to make the world a better place – there is a Golf for you.
No matter who you are or what “turns your crank”, you could be one of 30+ million Canadians driving one of 30+ million Golfs — not a bad combination.
