A Unique New Engine for the 2019 Volkswagen Golf

Here at Executive Volkswagen of North Haven, we’re always excited to see what changes are coming to our favorite vehicles in a new model year. One car that’s popular right now is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf. This stylish hatchback is ready to take on just about anything, and now we’ve learned that it’s going to be a little bit greener for 2019.

The big change coming to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf is an all-new engine that’s the first of its kind. A 2.0-liter diesel engine that uses mild hybrid tech will be one of the available options on this new Volkswagen model. It’s called the EA288 Evo, and it’s been outfitted with a starter generator and a lithium-ion battery. Together, they can reduce fuel consumption and cause a decline of ten grams per kilometer in carbon dioxide emissions. This car is fun to drive and it ends up reducing your carbon footprint. We’re sure that this is something many drivers can get behind.

The 2019 Volkswagen Golf is getting greener, but it’s also becoming a little more powerful. This new engine will put out somewhere between 134 horsepower and 201 horsepower. The engine is even lighter than the previous model’s, which can mean even more impressive performance. Similar engines could end up making their way to other models in the Volkswagen lineup. If you’re looking for the latest green technology, a Volkswagen dealership should always be your first stop. And like previous versions of the Volkswagen Golf, you know that the 2019 model will offer plenty of options to choose from.
