Volkswagen’s all-time best seller, the Golf is ready for its world premiere on 24 October at VW headquarters in Wolfsburg.

Developed continuously from one generation to the next, the Golf line has become firmly established worldwide.

Its exterior design is more dynamic than ever before, and yet it is instantly recognizable as a Golf from all sides. On the inside, fresh colours and fabrics define the look of the new compact model

The New Golf features more digitalization and connectivity than ever before, packed with innovations and sporting a highly expressive design. A new range of efficient engines and further enhanced suspension technology have been implemented to provide a boost in terms of agility.

Inside, the New Golf is a trendsetter in terms of its digitalized and connectivity-oriented interior world; its digital cockpit,  assisted driving features and online-based functions and services.

The latest generation of the Golf is due to enter the first markets in December.

Extensive final phase test for New Golf

The new Golf – still camouflaged

In its final phase of extensive test, the next generation Golf was put on track to uncover any nooks and cracks prior to its world premiere in late October. The New Golf will shape a New era for the Wolfsburg marque!

The camouflaged Golf which ran its final test phase was decked in black and white lines. It made no secret that it was a Golf, because of its unmistakable visual DNA. The five-door Golf has powerful proportions and the camouflaged one had the “Golf” designation integrated into the cover up stickers. However, the camouflage did not reveal one element: the finer details of the new design.

Klaus Bischoff, head of Volkswagen Design, said, “At this time, we will not disclose all details of the new Golf, but you can already perceive its elegant proportions. The next generation will be a genuine eye-catcher!”

The countdown to the début of number eight has already begun: the new Golf will be celebrating its world premiere on 24 October.
