Volkswagen Golf II, Jetta (from 1983 to 1992, the year of issue)
Volkswagen Golf II was put into production in 1983, but still some time with him made the first generation of machines exclusive versions with more powerful gasoline engines. For example, Volkswagen Golf I GTI was phased out last. A convertible based on the first-generation continues to produce about twenty years old, and no longer produced in the production only in the middle of the last decade of the twentieth century, after demonstrating a new convertible based on the third generation.
Golf II, similar to the "Ones", began to be carried out only in the form of a hatchback, three-door or five-door. Sedan, declared itself only a year later, became traditionally called Jetta, more precisely Jetta II. Engines basically not changed and remained the same, namely petrol and diesel with a power range from 55 to 129 hp The plant was completed with a four-car gearbox, optional you can order 5-step "mechanics" or a tri-band "machine".
First, the car had front-wheel drive only, and only in 1986 the market offers were widely sold all-wheel drive versions of Syncro. In 1990 I was born the most interesting and exotic version of the "second" - Volkswagen Golf Country, with spar frame, four-wheel drive, wide clearance and stylish "kenguryatnik." It was a rare, complex technical car than usual "Golf", and now it is difficult to meet.
In the same period, and produced the "road" racing-type modification Volkswagen Golf G60 with a 1.8-liter 160-horsepower supercharged engine. Those units, which were leaked to us, is not pleasing to the eye of the expert, as a result of the presence of a powerful engine is more powerful powertrain and body wear. And so at home a copy of a well-groomed Golf G60 is almost the same as the new Golf.
Volkswagen Golf II was produced for about ten years, and the latest models were released in 1992. And in August 1991, it rolled off the new car, the third generation - Golf III.
