Next VW Golf likely to get a bold new look

Next VW Golf likely to get a bold new look

These fresh spy shots of the Mk. 8 Volkswagen Golf show the design of the new model virtually without any camouflage, making the true shape of the headlights visible. The units no longer feature a simple rectangular shape like almost every VW today. Instead, the unit shrinks around the high beams and has a pinch towards the back. It's pretty bold for a Volkswagen and appears too small to ever allow for a basic halogen bulb.

Like its sister cars, the Golf 8 seems to have an unnaturally long nose and slightly shorter rear overhangs. There's no reason for this at present, but VW is apparently leaving room for autonomous driving tech to be added in the future. In profile, things are quite similar to how they used to be. The windows are the same shape, only the rear shows narrower taillights and a slight slope in the roof that wasn't there before.

Built on a revised version of the MQB platform, the new Golf will be powered by a combination of familiar and new engines. The 1.0 TSI and 1.5 TSI should form the bulk of its sales, though from what we understand, the 2.0 TDI will still be around. VW put a lot of work into developing a mild-hybrid assistance system to lower emissions further.

Rumours talked about a new base TDI, a 1.5-litre unit built using the TSI's architecture. The displacement has not been confirmed but falls in line with changes made by both Peugeot and Ford.
