The seventh-generation Golf was unveiled in 2012 and went on sale in Europe for the 2013 model year and crossed the pond to the United States for the 2015 model year. Built on the same MQB platform as the Audi A3, Seat Leon, and Skoda Octavia, the Golf Mk7 sports a more angular design and a longer wheelbase, while also being longer and wider than its predecessor. The roomier cabin gained new features and technology, including adaptive cruise control, a collision avoidance system, and driver fatigue detection. The compact arrived with a couple of brand-new engines, while the units that carried over were upgraded. Like its predecessor, the Golf Mk7 was made available in a variety of body styles and versions, including three- and five-door hatchback, wagon (Variant), GTi, GTE, and R. Now, the high-selling compact received its mid-cycle facelift in 2016.
