Welcome to Golf II world. if this is your first visit to this website, I thought it would be nice idea to start with a very fast and simple historical post to introduce The Golf to you.
The Volkswagen Golf or VW Golf (Mk1 badged as Volkswagen Rabbit in the United States and Canada, Mk1 badged as Volkswagen Caribe in Mexico) is a compact car/small family car manufactured by Volkswagen. The front-wheel drive Golf was Volkswagen’s first successful replacement for the air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle. Historically, it is Volkswagen’s best-selling model and the world’s third best-selling model, with more than 25 million built by 2007.
Most production of the Golf was initially in the 3-door hatchback style. Other variants include a 5-door hatchback, estate/wagon (Variant, from 1993), convertible (Cabriolet and Cabrio, 1979-2002), and a Golf-derived notchback saloon/sedan, variously called Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Vento or Volkswagen Bora (from 1979). The cars have filled many market segments, from basic personal cars, to high-performance hot hatches.
On its home market, the Golf’s success popularised the use of the hatchback in the C segment of cars, and began the entire Golf-class car.
