Next Volkswagen Golf might drop three-door and wagon variants

By Faiming_low on 04 Sep 2018 in New model

Attached Image A U.K publication has suggested that the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf has a good chance of losing its three-door and wagon variants.

Without naming any sources, Autocar reported the german brand might kill off the two aforementioned body styles as demand for them has declined over time.

Adding on, Volkswagen also wants to position the new Golf as a premium hatch that will appeal to BMW 3 Series and Mercedes Benz C-Class buyers who want a smaller car.

To do so, Volkswagen will be making the hatch the biggest Golf to date with the largest track ever. It will also have a longer wheelbase than its predecessor. Naturally, the Mk8 will have more interior space than before and that space will also likely surpass its rivals too.

Following its newer family members like the Touareg, Volkswagen will be eliminating unnecessary switches and using touchscreens to replace almost all traditional controls to make the car more upmarket. In fact, the headlight switch will also be replaced.

Based on the same MQB platform as the current model, the new car is set to be around 50kg lighter.
