Volkswagen has a busy year coming up. 2019 will include a new-generation Golf and a new Porsche Cayenne version.
More specifically, the Volkswagen Group is planning a new Porsche Cayenne Coupe and the new Volkswagen Golf VIII, the eighth-generation of Volkswagen’s popular compact hatchback, in 2019.
They will be joined by a new Audi Q3 Sportback as well as the latest generation of the Bentley Flying Spur. As Volkswagen ups its electric vehicle objectives, we can also expect plenty of new EVs starting with new Audi e-tron models and of course, the Porsche Taycan. SEAT and Skoda will also get new models.
A new Volkswagen 5-seat SUV is planned as well. In other words, Volkswagen will be giving us a new model from just about every automaker on a regular basis this year as it intends to launch 90 models worldwide in 2019.
Little info is available on the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, but it’s obvious from recent spy shots that it will be a new version of the current Cayenne with a sleeker rear design. Think a slightly shorter Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo with better ground clearance and you won’t be far off.
As for the new Golf VIII, it should get many of the improvements the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta received. That means more interior space, a redesigned interior with VW’s digital cockpit on certain versions, and a boxier design that won’t be a far cry from the current Golf styling language.
It’s a busy time at Volkswagen and all its brands will be busy this year and next as it plans an onslaught of new cars, SUVs and electric vehicles.
