The official debut of the Volkswagen Golf 8 is scheduled for October 24, but as is often the case images of the finished product have leaked online.
The images above were published on Facebook and clearly show the new-generation Volkswagen Golf expected next week. The exterior shot shows the new Golf 8’s headlights with a distinctive “brow” as well as a redesigned bumper with painted slats. The car also has the redesigned Volkswagen logo on its slim grille.
The interior shot shows a redesigned dashboard with a new centre screen, new gear lever, and what appears to be a second screen for the instrument cluster.
Left of the steering wheel is a continuation of this screen where various buttons likely controlling the headlights and driver assistance technologies can be found. The interior is very close to the Volkswagen Golf 8 teaser sketches revealed last week. The layout is a new iteration of the Innovision Cockpit offered on the Volkswagen Touareg in Europe.
The images appear to have been taken from a Volkswagen factory and certainly appear to be legit. The subtle exterior evolution is typical of how Volkswagen has redesigned the Golf over the years. The interior, however, is a far cry from the current Golf and certainly an improvement.
