At the time of the Golf I the factory is fighting for survival. It is compact, but unfortunately also prone to rust. The Golf II solves this problem in depth and offers more interior space. Where if you please, the Golf III for now should be develop? The plant has two clear answers: safety and environmental protection at, of course, not decreasing quality.

Let's start with safety. If you have driven the predecessor, the Golf III is familiar from the outset. Even if you're changing from other vehicles in this category, you have very little trouble. The vast majority of operating elements are where they are suspected. The dashboard is oriented towards the driver's seat. Despite the closed C-pillar, even the visibility conditions are excellent.

ABS and airbags are offered throughout the series for the first time. It fit an upholstered environment, belt hinge points and adjustable steering wheel and a body, which is increased significantly compared to the previous model. More stability comes also through the glued car windows. The U.S. regulations forcing many in this field, but also make the car much heavier. About the safety of the suspension and the most excellent pulling values no need to waste a single word on it.

Before we come to the environment, we remain a moment at the body. It is larger than the of the Golf II, but looks rather smaller. Also, the drag coefficient is with 0.32 for the first time reasonably acceptable. With same motorization you can either drive faster or consume less fuel. Add to this the further reduced wind noise, except for the opening of the sunroof (optional).

The Golf 3 succeeds the leap to a body for the first time, the also makes reasonably safe survivable a half-side impact at 64 km/h for the occupants. The predecessor was in this relation even more worse than the last Beetle models.

It is the time the CFC disappear and the lacquers will be low in solvents and other environmentally harmful substances. VW writes that even the paint residues are reused. Since the emissions from cars be measured, sometimes the new lacquer emits more pollutants than the exhaust. Everything will now be tested, cushion, adhesives and plastics manufacturing. One starts seriously with the preparation for the someday completely recyclable car.

But there are also positives what we see in this model for the last time. There is the very simple but not primitive, and further improved rear axle. The new model has a much more complex axle, compatible with all-wheel drive. Another final detail are the rear seats, whose backrests fold to where there were still just the seat bottoms. Less grief one should probably have because of the later with this model disappearing central injection. Although it has unmatched few component parts, but little in the exhaust field for the future.

Yes, with the engine is doing a lot. There the fault indicator is coming out great and if you do not trust it, You can read the so-called 'data block'. This is the time of the flashing signals and their interpretation. Both gasoline and diesel engines are digitized. The (turbo) diesel now has an oxidation catalyst. Star of the first full year of construction the VR6 engine with 2.8 liter displacement and 128 kW (174 hp).

Perhaps the "siblings" in the become larger family still of interest. Not available from the Golf II is a convertible. It comes with the Golf III and brand new and never been there, a station wagon, derived from the Golf with trunk, which is now called 'Vento'. 1993 the limousine comes and a year later also the convertible with one of the greatest triumphs of the Volkswagen factory, the TDI diesel engine. Now you can combine grumpy grip in the lower speed range with the utmost economy. 07/11               Top of page               Index
