This Is The All-New 2020 Volkswagen Golf

https://carbuzz.com/news/leaked-this-is-the-all-new-2020-volkswagen-golf

 

2019 promises to be a landmark year for Volkswagen, with the launch of the brand's first electric I.D. car marking a new era for the German automaker. Equally important for VW is the launch of the next-generation Golf this year.

We know production is starting this June, but the only official images VW has released so far are some vague design sketches teasing what the 2020 Golf will look like. But thanks to leaked photos posted by Instagram user johannes.vag, we’re getting an early look at the all-new Golf ahead of its official reveal.

The photos allegedly show the eighth-generation VW Golf virtually undisguised outside a McDonald's restaurant while the test driver stopped for lunch. Much like the 2020 Porsche 911, the new Golf’s design changes aren’t very dramatic since Volkswagen understandably doesn't want to mess with a successful formula since the iconic hatchback's inception in 1974.

As expected, we’re looking at an evolutionary update compared to the current seventh-generation model. It’s still instantly recognizable as a Golf, but the new model appears to have sharper design lines and slimmer LED lights that match VW’s newer models. It also looks slightly longer and wider than its predecessor.

The all-new Golf will be based on an upgraded version of the current model’s MQB platform. As a result, it will be significantly lighter and have a larger wheelbase than the current Golf, so it should offer a more spacious cabin and more trunk space. We’re also expecting the interior to get an overhaul, as well as more safety tech and a semi-autonomous system.

Expect a range of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder gasoline and diesel units available at launch, followed by mild-hybrid version and a new next-generation Golf R, which could have as much as 400 hp on tap. With production of the eight-generation Golf starting in June, a reveal at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March seems likely.

Their bad reliability reputation over last 10 years has taken its toll....

 

Imagine in Malaysia, there was even a mass owner protest at their showroom over DSG problems, this is uniquely VW.

 

Even if their problems less now, most people also don't dare to take a chance.

Did the protest in Malaysia materialize anything?

 

Else Singaporean is doing the right thing. Save their breath & energy

Is it just me or does anyone find the exterior of the current version more appealing?

this is just the BnB line. The Gti and the R or clubsports would be way more sporty .

 

But yes, the look more like a step back into the MK6 version. Did not move much from MK7.5 to Mk8 .

 

VW would like to think that there is a huge jump from Mk7 to Mk8 with the interior housekeeping and electronic .

 

But like iphone 6 to iphone Xs, I double many would be pouring hard earn moolah into getting a Mk8 if you already have a Mk6, or Mk7 edition.

 

I am keen to find out more of the changes in the engine of the GTi which is touted to hit 320BHP in stock format. and the R at 400bhp.

Interior.

As the photo show, the Golf Mk8 will be a radical departure from its predecessor as the model adopts a minimalist interior which eschews a traditional center stack.
 
This is a big styling change and it appears most of the controls will be integrated into a freestanding infotainment system. Some people might balk at this decision, but Volkswagen has cleverly integrated dual climate controls into a thin touch panel at the base of the display. There’s also a third panel between the climate controls and it could be used for adjusting the volume of the audio system.
 
To the left, is a digital instrument cluster which is connected to the infotainment system via a gloss black surround with a wave-like design. The cluster looks pretty basic, but it shows a large speedometer and tachometer.
 
Below the infotainment system is rectangular air vents which feature metallic trim. This design curves around the dash and is echoed across the passenger side.
 
Elsewhere, we can see a new steering wheel and evolutionary door panels with aluminum trim. The Golf also features a stepped upper dash and five dedicated buttons between the two central air vents.

During the annual shareholder meeting, Volkswagen has revealed more juicy details about the new generation Golf. For the first time, they have also provided a first look inside.

 

Compared to its predecessor, the cabin has a completely different layout, with a central screen that tries to merge with the digital gauges and a radical reduction of physical buttons. The lower side of the dashboard incorporates the slim air vents, separated in the middle by a few buttons.

 

The center console has a couple of storage spaces, including one that appears to feature a wireless charging pad for compatible mobile devices. The gear selector appears to have been redesigned -gone is the traditional lever in automatic models-  and continues to be found next to the electric parking brake. There’s a new multi-function steering wheel, too. Expect revised trim and plusher materials that will help the new Golf carry on its legacy into the next decade.

 

Volkswagen will unveil the 2020 Golf in October and the company has said it will once again “set the benchmark in the compact class.” In particular, they said the car will have class-leading comfort and connectivity as well as good fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions.

The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf has been snapped without any camouflage during a recent commercial shoot for the car.
 
The images were apparently (briefly) posted on the Instagram page of _adrianmay. They show the Golf Mk8 painted in the same color as recent prototypes and confirm that the many renderings previewing the latest Golf’s design have been accurate.
 
The most significant alteration made to the rear of the eighth-gen Golf are the new taillights which are certainly more aggressive than those of the outgoing model. In addition, we can see chrome accents around the tailpipes and two horizontal reflectors on either side of the license plate cut-out. Only a single, low-resolution photo of the new Golf’s front end is available, but it reveals newly-shaped taillights and an overhauled lower grille area with accents painted in the same shade as the rest of the car.
