I too miss the brochures. My new 2019 did not have one if I remember correctly.
You must down load from the site and find a decent color printer.
The mfr is cheeping out! I still have a lot of brochures that I have kept on the cars that I really liked.
You're right! I have a Golf brochure from our purchase of my wife's '17, with the Golf, GTI, R and Sportwagen all compiled into one. I'm not sure if I've seen a newer one since. I've noticed too that detailed specifications are getting buried deeper in many manufacturer's websites, often taking quite some effort to locate. They've dumbed down their websites. It's frustrating, but I guess most buyers could care less. Marketing hyperbole carries the day.
