2011 Volkswagen Golf

The 2011 Volkswagen Golf is built on the same basic platform as the earlier Volkswagen Golf, a high-quality, highly rigid chassis. A rigid chassis results in a smooth, controlled ride with little noise, vibration or harshness. Well-engineered crumple zones and other features enhance crash protection. To maintain structural integrity without sacrificing its round shape, the New Beetle convertible’s body has been enhanced to provide additional support, including a rear seat support that enhances chassis rigidity. Convertibles are distinguished by an exterior chrome strip that surrounds the greenhouse and by a redesigned trunk design with integrated third brake light, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Double exhaust pipes hint of compressed aspiration under the hood, while special 17-inch alloy wheels and tires indicate a sports suspension. A subtle Turbo S badge, styled after Porsche badging, adorns the back hatch on which sits a rear valance. The Turbo’s rear spoiler pops up at speed and is designed to maintain rear-end stability in high-speed corners.
