The VW Golf is one of the most successful and well-known cars from Volkswagen. The story surrounding the naming of the bestseller is all the more exciting. The buyer Hans-Joachim Zimmermann worked for Volkswagen from 1965 to 1995 and was also chairman of the Wolfsburg Riding and Driving Association. Horst Münzner, one of the directors of Volkswagen in 1973, was very fond of Mr Zimmermann’s horse called Golf. A few days after a conversation between the two men on the riding arena, the name Golf appeared on the rear of the new VW prototype.

In 1974, the success story of the VW Golf got underway. When designing the new model, VW focused on corners and edges compared to the hemispherical design of the Beetle model. The VW Golf impressed with water cooling, front engine and front-wheel drive. Two years after the start of production, the millionth Golf came off the production line.

To date, over 35 million cars of this model have been sold, making the VW Golf one of the best-selling cars in the world. With each new model, there have also been significant changes. While the Golf 2 was about more space in 1983, safety was a priority in 1991. The Golf 3 was the first Golf with an airbag. Since then, the six-speed gearbox has become standard and the vehicle features a laser-welded body and automatic start-stop system. The VW Golf is now being produced in the eighth generation, including a digital cockpit and autonomous driving capability.

In 2014, Volkswagen introduced the e-Golf, a more environmentally-conscious version of its bestseller – equipped with an electric motor. In the same year, a version of the Golf 7 with plug-in hybrid engine was introduced. For lovers of the sporty variant, the Golf GTI was developed, making its debut in 1976.

Due to its robust design, durability and reliability, the VW Golf is ideally suited as a second-hand car. Are you interested in a second-hand VW Golf? AMAG offers a wide range of second-hand Golf models.
