If there’s one car you could call a bestseller for decades, it’s the Golf. Developed continuously from one generation to the next, it has become firmly established worldwide. In two weeks, on 24 October, the Volkswagen brand presents the eighth generation at a world premiere in Wolfsburg: featuring more digitalization and connectivity than ever before, packed with innovations and sporting a highly expressive design.
Here's the press release for the pre-release, from VW:
In the new model, the strengths that have made the Golf a worldwide bestseller have been further perfected. In addition to the new range of efficient engines, further enhanced suspension technology provides a boost in terms of agility. The new Golf is also a trendsetter in terms of its digitalised and connectivity-oriented interior world, its assisted driving features and its online-based functions and services.
Its exterior design is more dynamic than ever before, and yet it is instantly recognisable as a Golf from all sides. On the inside, fresh colours and fabrics define the look of the new compact model, as well as a new digital cockpit. The latest generation of the Golf is due to enter the first markets in December.
