Early Golf History (cont.)
The Beetle had employed fairly basic suspension based around a beam axle at the front, whereas the Golf used MacPherson struts (as designed by Earle S MacPherson, Chevrolet's head of engineering in the late 1940's). The Golf used a unique trailing arm Independent rear suspension; the Beetle on the other hand relied on a swing axle, then latterly a form of Independent rear unit. In terms of propulsion, the Beetle had utilized an air-cooled flat four mounted in the rear of the car, hung off the gearbox, behind the axle driving the rear wheels, conversely the Golf made use of a water-cooled inline 4 cylinder, transversely mounted ahead of the front axle, driving the front wheels. This design allowed maximum use of the space created within the footprint of the car.
