Next-Gen Volkswagen Golf is Coming Sooner Than You Think

Facelift

Because the competition is only getting fiercer.

Volkswagen has literally just pulled the sheets off its all-new, seventh-generation Golf and already we’re getting word about its replacement. Yes, VW is obviously working to stay well ahead of the competition. That means in 2017 the eighth-gen Golf will launch. We reported not long ago that it’ll even borrow some tech from the XL1, mainly in the form of aerodynamic efficiency to further improve fuel economy.

The next-gen Golf news has been confirmed by German publication Auto Motor und Sport, which states that VW plans to give the next Golf a wider and lower stance along with a new front end design. However, it’ll still ride on the same MQB modular platform. Advanced technologies, available mainly with premium luxury cars at the moment, will also be included. Automatic parking and braking, a head-up display and infotainment system with mirror link will all be offered. Improved fuel efficiency is also expected, thanks to a weight reduction of around 110 lbs. as well as a new three-cylinder diesel engine that’s now available in the Polo.
