New Golf MK7 Will Have A Three Doors Version
Volkswagen will not leave the three-door version of his Golf, although that niche is only 8% from the compact segment. Moreover, the model will share the platform with the next Seat Leon SC.
Volkswagen announced that it preserves in their offers the three-door version of Golf also on the seventh generation. The model is designed for a niche of 8% from C segment, but also to allow the product of the Golf GTI. With the new generation of Golf, Volkswagen will also produce a three-door version of Seat Leon, which will be called SC. The two models will share the Audi A3 platform. Thus, the leader of the C segment and best-selling volume model in Europe retains the niche versions to grab more customers.
The SC version of Seat Leon will be truly a niche model, because the Spanish brand has the sales in falling and the Leon model is not exactly the star in sales charts. However, the Iberian model is quite popular among the fans of compact but with an interesting design and with Volkswagen technical under body. There are chances that the SC version of Leon to be is equipped with the most powerful engine in the range, which would create a performance hot hatch with a design at least interesting.
On the other hand, many automakers have leaved the three-doors versions of the compacts in their offers, if they existed. Fiat Bravo, Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Hyundai i30 are available only in five-doors version. On the other hand, Citroen C4, Ford Focus, Kia Cee’d and Peugeot 308 will leave the three-doors versions. The guys from Kia and the French from Citroen offered a special appearance for the three-doors versions of the compacts in their offers, but this will become a part of history in the coming years.
