The Volkswagen Golf MK8 is coming

Volkswagen is in the final testing phase on their new MK8 Golf which will premiere sometimes this fall.

The Volkswagen Golf enters its last phase of tests. The Wolfsburg-based manufacturer has released a photo of the eighth-generation model, also known as MK8, showing at the same time that this compact is going to turn heads.

“At this time, we will not disclose all details of the new Golf, but you can already perceive its elegant proportions,” said Klaus Bischoff, head of Volkswagen Design.

The official unveiling of the car is expected to take place this fall with a commercialization on the European continent scheduled before the end of the year. North America will have to wait for the next steps as the carmaker will eventually bring back the sporty GTI and the Golf R, two extremely popular models in Canada and the United States. As for the Golf family range, the SportWagen and the Alltrack models, these two are sadly destined to take the road of definitive retirement.

It is still a little early to know if the regular Golf will be reinstated to the brand’s line up by 2021, since everything indicates that the US market will skip its turn for the next Golf, retaining only the sports cars (GTI and R).

What is certain about this eighth Golf generation is that it will be riddled with technologies designed to assist the driver. As for the electric reality, the manufacturer certainly thought about it, but it would be very likely that this technology is reserved for the vehicles of the ID. family.

We will know a little more this fall when the manufacturer will lift the veil on the best-selling car in its history.
