The all-new Golf family of vehicles continued to find success in the market.  In July, Golf family sales totaled 6,717 units and the 2015 Golf TDI® Clean Diesel earned yet another accolade: a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® achievement for the "lowest fuel consumption—48 U.S. contiguous States for a non-hybrid car" with a remarkable 81.17 mpg.

"We are encouraged by the consistent sales growth for the Golf across all models within the family. The latest Guinness World Records achievement for the Golf TDI adds to the suite of accolades which also includes the 2015 North American Car of the Year and Motor Trend Car of the Year," said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America.

Recently, Volkswagen unveiled the latest model, the 2016 Jetta GLI, the performance version of its best-selling car. The newest edition of the GLI offers new, class leading infotainment features as well as a bold, sporty look for the 2016 model year and will hit showrooms later this summer.

The Tiguan delivered 2,407 units, marking a 13.5 percent increase over the previous July. The Touareg, refreshed for 2015, delivered 676 units: 374 of these were TDI® Clean Diesel models, amounting to 55 percent of its sales.
