Volkswagen Golf/Jetta 2 manual

General information
Bodywork and fittings / General information

The vehicle bodyshell is of all-steel unit construction with impact-absorbing front and rear crumple zones which take the brunt of any accident thereby leaving the passenger compartment with minimum distortion. The front crumple zones take the form of two corrugated box sections in the scuttle and firewall.

The Golf is available in two or four-door hatchback versions, all models having a large tailgate which is propped open with a steel rod or gas-filled telescopic strut.

The Jetta is available only as a four-door notchback, incorporating a conventional boot and lid.

On all models, the front wings are bolted to the body and can easily be renewed in the event of damage.
