    1. 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.

      VW Golf Owners

      Hi All, Starting a thread for Golf owner to share our discoveries of our little bundle of joy and concerns. 1) Sleepy-T White MK6 122bhp
    3. Remember the black Volkswagen mk5 Golf GTI that was spotted racing on CTE at night with an Mitsubishi Evo X before causing a van to crash and flip? Here's a recent cum compilation video of the GTI causing havoc on our roads. As you guys can see these are some pretty reckless driving. A big no-no when dashcams are everywhere. And yes how could we forget the ever-increasing number of Facebook pages that shame bad drivers. Naturally, the comments section on SG Road Vigilante's page has its supporters slamming the driver. On a less serious note, the GTI is a pretty good point and shoot car with its fast-acting DSG box and turbo engine eh?

      It is the ever-popular Volkswagen Golf!

      You've seen the Youtube thumbnail and you know what it is! Volkswagen's ever-popular Golf is put through its paces in this week's video review, here in the 1.4-litre Highline variant! It seems like our tester are likewise really eager to test this car? Check out how dead serious Idris is about talking Julian through the car's tech! Seems like our testers are so impressed with the interior, that they go on to make some crazy statements? So is it a simple case of 'go buy'? It looks like it isn't necessarily so! Exactly what happened during the drive? And what exactly has Julian so vexed about the Golf? Watch the full video to find out!
    5. This Guy Added Rear Keyless Entry To A 2019 VW Golf R!?!?!?!?! source: https://www.motor1.com/news/382722/adding-rear-keyless-entry-golf/ An elegant solution to a simple problem. Let's face it; sometimes we buy a brand new car based solely on all the little stuff that's added to a specific trim or equipment package. I mean, who doesn't want Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, or even cooling and heating front seats? It's the little things that can make us spend that extra bit more on a specific vehicle, even if getting the top spec means it's price is already getting dangerously close to a larger basic spec car. Heck, when I was shopping for a car, I specifically wanted LED headlights and keyless entry. Those two things alone made sure I went for one of the most expensive subcompact cars as a city runabout. But what happens when you think you have it all, only to find out that other markets that sell your same vehicle have that extra bit of convenience that you crave? Well, you find out a way to do it yourself. That's exactly what HumbleMechanic set out to do with his recently acquired Volkswagen Golf R. You see, there will be times that you want your keyless entry to go even further; unlocking the front doors and trunk are good, but what about the rear doors? There are times when our hands are full and we need to store stuff in the car, but not necessarily need the trunk, right? In HumbleMechanic's Golf R, the rear doors do not have a sensor that detects the hand of the user, but the Volkswagen Atlas does. Out of pure laziness, as he puts it, he went out to rectify this problem by providing an informative video guide, comprised of a ton of research and tinkering. The goal is to retrofit the rear door sensors from the Atlas to the Golf. Heck, he even made his own harnesses to plug into the car's junctions, so it really isn't a plug-and-play thing you can order online.
    6. Hi Guys, I find Astra GTC is quite funky and energetic but Golf 1.4 TSI is popular among buyers. Under the boot, GTC churns out less 20 horeses than its counterpart Golf 1.4 TSI. There are quite a number of Golfs on the road but find that Astra GTC is hard to spot on. What are your opinions on these 2 cars? Would like to hear pros and cons from serious ownership's view.
    7. This might be the first few photos of the actual car shot without its camouflage on. The car was photographed recently at its own commercial shoot. As reported on Carscoops, the new Golf Mk8 seen here is painted in the same color as recent prototypes, confirming that the many renderings previewing the latest Golf’s design have been spot on. Design wise, it is still unmistakably a Golf and that is no bad thing. While the guys here don't think that it is the prettiest Golf (that goes to the Mk5) ever produced, it still is no plain jane. Inside, the car will have a fully-digital gauge cluster and a large touchscreen for the infotainment system in the center of the console. It will also support over-the-air updates, which has made VW ensure the car’s software remains safe from cyberattacks by featuring over 100 million lines of code, versus the 10 million needed by a new car a decade ago. The new Golf is expected to be revealed officially in October.

      The new VW Golf GTI Mk8

      Volkswagen might be on the cusp of the electric car revolution, but it’s painfully aware it needs the new 2019 Golf range to be a smash hit for those not yet ready to take the EV plunge. And its halo car - the venerable VW Golf GTI - is returning for its eighth iteration with a mission to tempt hot hatches to stay loyal to the genre. Carmagazine UK has some inside scoops on the long awaited hothatch. Not everybody likes the front end, which strikes some as looking like a sad face. But chief designer Klaus Bischoff tells me he’s confident that when you see it on the move you’ll be struck by its freshness and presence. His CEO Herbert Diess nods in agreement. And you can be sure that the GTI will look sharper and more purposeful than more mainstream versions, which is the way it’s been since the first Golf GTI appeared in 1976. Expect the traditional red interior accents and chequered upholstery as well as the strong horizontal lines on the front. New 2019 VW Golf GTI: When the Golf Mk8 arrives, there will be many permutations of engine, transmission and spec, but they’ll all have five doors, as the Golf has not been immune to the global loss of interest in three-door hatches. At the top of the Golf range there will be three distinct versions: GTI GTI Cup Golf R VW Golf GTI performance specs The regular Golf GTI returns with its familiar 2.0-litre turbo four now making 232bhp. It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox or, as a cost option, a seven-speed DSG twin-clutch auto. Expect a 0-62mph time of 6.1sec, aided by a marginally lower weight and a more slippery body. Top speed is restricted to 155mph. The GTI Cup is a new addition to the line-up of go-faster Golfs. Inspired by the TCR derivative of the Mk7, it’s the sportiest Golf by a clear margin. It boasts the wildest aero kit, the lowest ride height, the fattest wheels and the biggest brakes, plus a diff lock. The power output is a reassuring 286bhp, and the maximum torque of 273lb ft is on tap from 1600 to 4300rpm. Optionally, you can pay to have the top speed limiter chip removed, buying you 166mph. The new 2020 VW Golf R The next VW Golf R is, again, powerful and composed – an uber-GTI with tidier road manners and a more comprehensive specification. It shares its 328bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four with the forthcoming Arteon shooting brake. The peak torque of 295lb ft is distributed to all four wheels via the seven-speed DSG. Expect an acceleration time of 4.3sec and relatively frugal fuel consumption. A 48-volt system with mild hybrid technology should be available on all three high-end Golfs. Each model gets its own bumper graphics and cockpit treatment, and options including 20in wheels, larger-diameter cross-drilled sports brakes, lowered sports suspension with adaptive dampers, an Akrapovic exhaust and a blacked-out bodykit.

    9. Just as the new Mk8 Volkswagen Golf has been spotted on the road with minimal camouflage, there is confirmation that the new Golf R will not be electrified. In an article seen on Carscoops, Volkswagen R Division’s boss, Jost Capito has been quoted telling the journalists that the new Golf R that it’s “going to be fantastic” and that it won’t be an hybrid of any sorts. “The crown jewel of performance in a Golf remains the Golf R. We don’t want to take hybrids to a ridiculous strength. A hybrid needs to be affordable and have an ecological reasoning. It’s not just for performance. The GTE is an alternative choice for a GTI customer, and that will remain. The performance king will remain a Golf R, and the Golf 8 R is going to be fantastic”, Capito remarked. In the interview, Capito was also quizzed about the rumored Golf R400 which was supposed to a more extreme version of the current Golf R. He confirmed that they did actually test such a model, but eventually killed it. “We did research and customers don’t want it”, added Capito. “They want around 300 horsepower and a price tag below €50,000 (S$76,700). To move up to 400 horsepower, you’d lose 50% of sales volume and increase the cost of ownership.” Therefore, it might be possible to imply that the new MK8 Golf R won't be getting that much power too, with a possible 315bhp or so.

      No Drift mode for new Volkswagen Golf R

      With the new eighth generation of the Golf set to be launched in soon, fans have already asked what could be game-changing in the new Golf R. As reported by Carscoops, Jost Capito who is now the boss at Volkswagen’s R division, revealed that the new Golf R is unlikely to get a Drift mode. While we understand that the Golf R has always been the more restrained choice for the hot hatch enthusiasts, we couldn't help but imagine that Capito, who used to be with Ford, would implement such a feature. “The Focus RS feels geared up for fun above everything”, he said. “Drift mode is a free piece of technology that comes from the drive systems they’re using. But it’s not for us.” He was then questioned on whether the R needed a four-wheel steering system, like the current Renault Megane R.S. He replied, “it’s just not necessary on a car the size of the Golf” The new car is expected to have more than 300bhp but nowhere near the 400bhp mark as reported earlier in the year.
    11. It has been 45 years since Volkswagen commenced production of the Golf and more than 35 million units have been sold worldwide since. The Golf, which is also its best-selling model ever, is in its seventh generation now. The Golf Mk1 started production on 29th of March 1974 at Volkswagen's plant in Wolfsburg and was designed as the replacement of the iconic Beetle. It was an instant hit with buyers and just two years later, in October 1976, the German company sold its one millionth example. Fast forward to today's seventh generation, Volkswagen reckons that on average, someone is buying a new Golf every 41 seconds, every day, without interruption, for 45 years now. This year is likely to see the debut of the new eighth generation of the Golf. Information found on the web suggests that the car will debut around September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

      My 3 days with a VW Golf GTI

      Thank you to MCF for picking me as a winner for the lucky draw to drive the Golf GTI for a weekend. Selected the available weekend slot from VCS, Fri to Mon. Met Amanda from VCS at 2pm on Fri to collect the car. Signed the agreement form and proceeded to take delivery of the car. Amanda gave me a very detailed brief of the car from exterior to interior, it was like I bought a brand new car. She handed the car over with full tank of fuel and there is no top-up required by me. And I was also surprised that VCS allowed me to drive the car to Malaysia. However I was not able to due to commitments in SG, attending NDP preview. First look at the Golf GTI exterior, it was stunning, looks big. Mine is white colour. The distinctive red GTI line across the front from head lamp to head lamp stands out, typical of the GTI heritage. The LED headlight and DRS was so beautiful, I liked it. The rest of the body was similar to the rest of the Golf cars. The rear lamps was nothing different to me. And this Golf GTI comes with front sunroof, thou I am not a fan of sunroofs.
    13. During its recent Annual General Meeting, Volkswagen teased us with a digital the interior of the new Golf but now spy photographers can show us the real thing. As published by Carscoops, the Golf's interior is very different from today's model. Adopting a minimalist interior like most of the newer cars today, the dash features two large screen, one as the instrumental cluster and one for the infotainment system. A third smaller screen seemed to have been placed in between the aircon vents to display the climate control's status. Elsewhere, we can see a new steering wheel and new door panels with aluminum trim. The new car is set to be revealed in October and according to the German company, the car 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. They will be available with mild- and plug-in hybrid variants and the plug-in hybrid models will be able to travel up to 80 km on electricity alone.
    14. Volkswagen's Golf GTI TCR is the last of the special editions for the mk7 generation of the GTIs. So is it the best one of them all? Inspired by the TCR International Series, the Golf GTI TCR is not the most hardcore of the Mk7 GTIs but with 286bhp from its 2.0-litre turbo four paired exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels, it is far from soft. Watch what Carfection's Henry Catchpole has to say about the car in the video below!

      No mild-hybrid powertrain for new Golf GTI

      Volkswagen had planned to give the new mk8 Golf GTI a mild-hybrid powertrain but scrapped the plan at the last minute. According to Autocar, Volkswagen has reached the final development phase of the eighth generation Golf GTI and has decided to use a revised version of the current EA888 2.0-litre turbocharged engine instead. A mild electric motor was supposed to be matched to the EA888 engine but current VW Group chairman Herbert Diess reversed the decision without us knowing why he did so. Instead, the car will have two power outputs like the current generation GTI. It is believed that the lower power model will have around 252bhp while the higher output one will make around 286bhp. Meanwhile, the standard golf will be getting the mild-hybrid technology with the 1.5-litre turbo four being paired to an electric motor and a 48V electrical architecture. The new Golf is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
    16. Looks like the hot Hatch category getting interesting next Year You Have the Renault RS which is zero to 100 in about 5.7 to 6 sec New engine. Not as ricey as the Civic and tamer. Functional Diffuser. 4 Wheel Steering, which may not be everyone's liking. Hopefully, they nail it this time round. Its downsize to 1.8T instead of 2.0 T so I suspect no replacement for displacement means the 150 to 200 kmh range will be slower on the straight. Comes stock at 280 bhp while GTi is 235 bhp. vs Civic 308 bhp. Let see what kind of prices. If the number falls in the 145 to 155 K range, probably have very good takeup rate.

      This could be the new Volkswagen Golf

      Posted by Instagram user johannes.vag, the new eighth generation Volkswagen Golf has been spotted on the streets of Europe. Looking pretty much without any form camouflaging, the new car does look bigger than current generation Golf and based on the photos, the new car looks like it shares no body panel with the current car. The new Golf is said to be based on a revised version of the existing model’s platform and will likely be lighter than before. Of course, the interior will be refreshed and it will offer some form of semi-autonomous system and an improved infotainment system. Volkswagen is believed to have said that the new Golf will go into production in June 2019.
    18. Volkswagen has unveiled the Golf GTI TCR, a pared down, road-legal version of the touring car. With 286bhp, the TCR is supposed to slot between the 227bhp GTI and the similarly-powered Golf R. Paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that drives the front wheels, the TCR can do the century sprint in 5.6 seconds while top speed is 250km/h, with the option of increasing it to 260km/h. Compared to the GTI, the TCR can do the 0-100km/h sprint 0.8 seconds faster while the Golf R, with its AWD drivetrain is still pretty much uncomparable with a 4.6 seconds timing. Inside, things stay pretty much the same other than the new front sports seats with unique fabric designs. Elsewhere, the Golf GTI TCR gets a new front lip, side skirt extensions, a more aggressive roof spoiler and rear diffuser. The standard 18-inch wheels are also new and the car gets a limited slip differential too. Buyers can opt for two packages with the first one offering DCC adaptive suspension, stiffer rear damping, a 260km/h speed limiter and 19-inch wheels. The second one goes one step further and adds stickier tyres to a different set of 19-inch wheels. It also gets wheel locks with anti-theft protection.
    19. A prototype of a Volkswagen Golf R with a five cylinder engine has been filmed going around the Nurburgring. Published by youTuber, cvdzjiden, this special Golf R was supposed to be the production version of the R400 concept a few years ago. However, the plan to build it was shelved as the company was involved in the emissions scandal. As for the car seen in the video, Golf fans would have noticed the car sounds very different in the video as compared to a normal Golf R. In fact, it sounds very similar to the 2.5-litre turbo five pot that resides in the Audi RS3 Sportback and sedan. Look closely and you can also see that the Golf wears the RS3's dual tip tail pipes instead of the usual Golf R's quad pipe setup. According to the video's description, the car is said to be making 420ps or 414bhp, a substantial jump from the Golf R's 306bhp. Will the car make it into production? No one knows. But we sure hope it does! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSeUu6oqLos
    20. Volkswagen has only started releasing teaser images of the upcoming Golf Mk8 and the car does not seem to be ready at all for a reveal yet. However, someone in South Africa has apparently spied the car in real life with no camouflage at all... Could this be the real thing? Or is this a heavily doctored video, using the current car as a ? Until it is officially confirmed, it is best to take the video with a grain of salt. https://www.facebook.com/TunedAutomotive/videos/1291454950994437/ https://www.facebook.com/TunedAutomotive/videos/212536379648282/

      Golf

      Let this be a thread for golfers, any? Professional, novice, play for fun Come in and share some tips and exchange pointers! [wave]
    23. 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.
    24. Volkswagen's Golf GTI just keeps getting better and better. For 2019, VW has turned up the wick on the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and made more performance equipment standard, while also introducing a special-edition model called the Rabbit Edition. All GTI models now produce 228 horsepower, 8 hp more than before thanks to a slight retuning. The six-speed manual transmission remains the same, but the optional dual-clutch transmission is now a seven-speed unit. Larger brakes from the Golf R and a limited-slip differential, previously offered only on higher trims, are now standard across the board. The new Rabbit Edition slots between the base S and the mid-level SE. It's set apart by black trim for the wheels, spoiler, and mirrors along with Rabbit badges for the seats, intended to bring to mind the original GTI from 1984, which was called Rabbit in the U.S. market. The GTI's spirit of continuous improvement is also accompanied by continous price hikes, and the 2019 model now starts at US$28,490, US$1180 more than before. The Rabbit Edition is US$29,790, the SE is US$32,690, and the Autobahn costs US$36,890, with the dual-clutch transmission priced at US$1100 regardless of trim level.
    25. Volkswagen's Golf R, which has been facelifted this year, was given 10bhp more in its current guise. But with the new WLTP coming into effect, Volkswagen has no choice but to remove the added horses. Also known as the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure, it is the latest test that measures emissions based on real-world data rather than the current lab analysis of the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). To make sure the Golf R complies with the new emissions standards that will kick in in September, Volkswagen has fitted a new exhaust system to the Golf R. Sadly with the cleaner exhaust, Autocar says that the hot hatch will output 296bhp instead of 306bhp. Unfortunately, customers who have yet to get their cars, will have to have their exhaust systems swapped out to the revised ones also.
