2020 Volkswagen Golf Teaser Images Revealed Ahead of October 24 Debut

The 8th Volkswagen Golf will definitely be sleeker and we hope those wheels make it to the 2020 model.


The 2020 Volkswagen Golf is definitely on the short list of much anticipated debuts this year. It may not have the same hype as the new C8 Corvette or the Taycan or the Supra, but anytime a new Golf comes along, it’s a big deal.

The new Volkswagen Golf is set to be unveiled on October 24th. Being that that’s next week, Volkswagen did what every automaker does and revealed a few teaser images to get everyone excited as we move closer to the big reveal. Except that Volkswagen didn’t just reveal a headlight, or a little bit of the grille, or the rear roof line. They revealed what is essentially the 2020 Volkswagen Golf MK8 in its entirety. Inside and out.

Granted, these are just sketches. The final production version will surely have door handles and we can’t imagine those slim side view mirrors meet European or North American regulations. On the other hand, the 2020 Golf sketched here and the final version will likely share the headlight design, the wheels, and the new front bumper with dual slats on each corner.

Inside, we may be even further from production but Volkswagen is certainly headed in a nice direction. The sketches show a single screen stretching from above the centre console to behind the steering wheel with what appears to be a digital instrument cluster. There’s a new and more modern steering wheel design as well.

The interior layout seen here is nice, but we’d be surprised if Volkswagen revamped the Golf’s interior to such a degree. We’re thinking the 2020 Golf will take its interior design elements from the new Jetta. That said, Volkswagen did call the new Golf’s interior a “trendsetter in terms of its digitalised and connectivity-oriented interior world, its assisted driving features and its online-based functions and services.” Maybe VW has big plans for the MK8’s cockpit.

No info has leaked about the engines expected under the hood of the 2020 Volkswagen Golf. VW says they will be more efficient and there will be engine options than before, but we will have to wait and see about that.

There’s been a lot of shuffling going on concerning the Volkswagen Golf. The Golf R, Alltrack and SportWagen have been discontinued in the US in 2020 while Canadians will get the full lineup. The Golf R is expected to return in MK8 form.

Expect all the speculation to continue all the way up to the official unveil in two weeks.
