With all the hype on the internet regarding the all-new 2013 VW Golf, Volkswagen had a media presentation in Germany to highlight the important features of the brand's vital new model.

Unfortunately, we are still unable to have a good gauge of how the new car will look like after the presentation as only the body structure was showed. But judging from the body structure, one can guess that the MK 7 will generally retain the shape of its predecessor.

Despite being larger and roomier than the outgoing model, the new Golf will shed about 100kg. In addition, VW says that fuel consumption and emissions are reduced by up to 23%. Hence, letís hope that the new Golf will be "Cheaper (to run), better, faster".

The new Golf is densely populated with technology as it tries to pull away from the crowd of highly capable competitors. Some of the technological highlights include Speed Limiter, PreCrash, Fatigue Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control and Cylinder Deactivation.

The new Golf will be displayed during a special event in Berlin on 4 September with its public premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. If you donít mind buying an outgoing model, perhaps Volkswagen Centre Singapore may have a clearance sales of the MK 6 Golf towards the end of 2012 or early 2013, just like what it did for the pre-facelift Passat CC.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
