It is a four-door car with a front engine four-wheel drive type sedan produced between 1970 and 1975. It is famous with being the first VW with a front-mounted engine with water cooling and front wheel drive. Approximately 211 000 were manufactured with 69hp, contributing to its name. The production was in Salzgitter. Its displacement arose to 1605 cc and 74 hp. In 1972 and 1973 improvements were made, such as a better cooling for the differential. In 1973 a new version was launched with 99hp and 1807 with reduced noise, new engine, and transmission. K70 also had more space inside because of the placement of the engine. The driver sits higher than in the previous models and also a more substantial window was set for better sight. The fuel tank was ahead of the rear axle and trunk, near the wheelbase. Seat belts were not necessary and were offered only as an option. Its price was lower than Audi 100 but because of the critics stating it is an unreliable car the sales struggled. It was mainly with left-hand drive. Approximately 210 000 have been produced.
