The first Golf (VW internal designation Typ 17) began production early in 1974. It was a water-cooled, front wheel drive design in a hatchback body style. It featured firmly sprung and damped, independent MacPherson strut front suspension and semi-independent twist-beam rear suspension, that gave crisp handling and good roadholding, without being too uncomfortable. A very important model was the Golf Diesel, which appeared in late 1976. This was remarkable in how unremarkable it was, with performance very similar to that of a petrol 1100. The 1.5-litre engine used the petrol engine’s crankshaft, bearings, and connecting rods, combined with the recently discontinued 1471 cc cast-iron engine block. As with the Golf GTi, the Golf Diesel more or less created a new class of car.
The Golf was designed by Italian automobile architect / designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, of the ItalDesign design studio. Giugiaro had also designed the Alfasud and the Lotus Esprit Mk1.
There was a minor facelift in 1980 which saw the adoption of larger rear lamp clusters (more in line with Giugiaro’s original concepts), moulded black plastic bumpers, a new dashboard with a more modern-looking instrument display featuring LED warning lights, and for US versions rectangular headlights, this was the last major update before it was replaced by the MK2 Golf in September 1983.
