Over the past few months, there have been many spy photos of the MK7 Golf floating on the internet. Now, it seems that the wait is finally coming to an end. According to German news daily, Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung, the all new Golf will make its world premiere at a special event organized at Berlin's New National Gallery of modern art on 4th September 2012.

As evident from the series of spy photos, the design of the Golf VII will be an evolution of the outgoing MK6. However, behind the conservative shell lies the biggest change. The car will be sitting on the company's latest MQB platform that underpins the new Audi A3 and the recently introduced Seat Leon.

For the engine lineup, the European model will utilize a range of turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines including a 1.2-litre TSI and a 1.4-litre TSI petrol equipped with VW's ACT (active cylinder management) system that shuts down cylinders two or three to improve fuel economy under certain conditions. The 1.4-litre is currently available in the new Audi A3 and generates 140bhp with 249Nm of torque.

The hot 2.0-litre GTI and the range-toping 'R' AWD models will follow next year. The GTI version is rumored to produce around 260bhp. The new Golf will also debut hybrid powertrains in gasoline and diesel formats, as well as a pure-electric variant.

The new VW hatchback will receive its public premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show which will run from 29 Sep to 13 Oct 2012. It will go on sale across Europe in November.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
