The VW Golf made its American debut in 1975 as a successor to the Beetle. The main difference between the Beetle and the new Golf was that the Golf was a modern front-wheel drive, front-engined hatchback instead of the rear-engine in the Beetle. The Golf has been a staple of the Volkswagen lineup for almost 50 years and has gone through many changes over the years. Today, the Volkswagen Golf is a high-tech, safe small car featuring some of the latest technology and safety features.
