So then why do you care that they won’t copy the Canadian page? Everything I’ve read says we are basically getting loaded row cars minus the titanium exhaust option. Power trains appear identical so there’s no mpi in some markets and none in the others. Only thing really missing from a row review would be a manual car and it’s likely the exact same 6mt as the last gen.

Lots of specs including power have been confirmed but here’s a little more flavor fresh off the presses.

I think they’ve confirmed that it’s the same manual box. Hence the torque being limited to what Sachs quotes as the max limit for the clutch. No big deal, a new clutch is sort of a given on any tuned Golf.

I thought for sure I would be able to scoop up a mk7.5 for cheap before the mk8 came out. Literally nothing left in the US. Not sure if chip shortage or MK8 is to blame. I went to my local VW dealer and they basically only have some Atlas's and Tiguans a few EV's and mostly fluffer inventory such as ex police vehicles (unheard of in normal times)

The chip shortage definitely has hurt and I've read that a lot of people were turned off by the styling of the MK8 and the digital dash so they bought a 7.5.

Yeah I think the Mk8 is to blame there was a fairly significant inventory up until somewhat recently.

Nothing left because it’s been out of production since February. Inventory has only been getting scarcer since.

I’d take it as a sign that inventory is going to be super limited and they know they’re going to sell everything they can produce for a bit anyway.

unrelated: what appears to be the final regular golf that will ever be sold new in the us is still available in South Carolina.

Pretty cool @Fastlax16 . 112 views of the car in the last week. So then there will be no 2022 regular Golfs offered in the U.S. market then? Sad to see them go. My wife still loves her (bought new) 2017 Golf Wolfsburg 5M.

correct. The base golf is dead in the us. We’ll only get GTIs and Rs for the mk8.

VW is pretty much forcing people to get the ID.4 if they want what is the closest thing to a Golf if they don't want a GTI or R. I guess sales were down on the Golf but I see them all over the place in Phoenix.

Golf sales have always been low for this generation. I think the big reason is it didnt cost that much more to get in to a gti and it is a lot more car. I think it was outsold by the gti 5-1 or something.

True if you got a Golf with a lot of premium packages. SUV sales have also cost a lot of companies to discontinue their small cars. But the ID.4 is selling well.

2021 sales can't go up because there aren't any and the Mk8 won't arrive in any quantities (if any)
