Mystical Fantasies: 2021 Corrado.
Welcome to my new segment of "Mystical Fantasies". Let's chat about what if a very beloved sweetheart from VW made a return?
We all know the Golf as this do-it all hatchback with a lot of pep and energy. It has always been widely loved around the world as it sold a solid 60 million units. However, just for fun, what if the Golf's more quirkier sister returned?
I'm talking a new transverse-mounted supercharged 5 cylinder that gives you a healthy 30+ MPG and will sound even better than ever with a simple 16-valve. There should perhaps be an electric variant as VW had offered the Golf in EV flavor. Maybe even keep a turbo version as well.
As for design, VW should follow suit and offer it in retro style., thus sparking a retro design revolution for VW's future models/lineup. Manual goodness shall follow as is and the clutch and shifter can get tweaked for more solidity and feel, but also keep the DSG around as well. Overall, the new Corrado's weight shall be around 2,500 lbs, which is 60 lbs less than the original. Finally, the suspension and height would be lowered and the dimensions would be a wee bit smaller too. This new Corrado would be ideally a wee bit cheaper than the Golf and if the Hyundai Veloster can still be justified with its unique three-door setup, then I say this can as well, all while offering golf levels of practicality.
We all know that crossovers sell and VW is sure as heck investing tons into them, however, they could also have more fun too and bring their future lineup to be even more desirable than ever before. VW ought to make cars that are obviously worth buying along with cars that will want people coming back for more.
