Volkswagen has previewed the new Volkswagen Golf Mk8's design with official sketches.
The newest evolution of the Golf is soon to be unveiled at VW's Wolfsburg headquarters this month and is due to go on sale in the UK in the first half of 2020.
Before its official unveil, Volkswagen has released official sketches of the Golf Mk8's design. The new Golf still keeps its iconic design but with the brand's latest design features such as new headlights along with a revised front bumper and grille.
For years, the Golf's interior has only seen minor revisions but the Mk8 sketches suggest a bigger change. If the new Golf is true to the sketches, it will be dominated by screens like with the new Mercedes-Benz interior.
Another nice addition to keep the design flowing inside is the thin strip across the dashboard that will replace the air vents and incorporate a light strip.
Volkswagen also said that the new Golf will feature a revamped range of efficient engines and new suspension technology to boost its handling.
The new Golf will be launched with a range of new engines, including two plug-in hybrid powertrains but there won't be a new electric e-Golf, because Volkswagen will focus on its standalone ID 3 model.
Rumours have suggested that the next Golf will bring more connected technology. The new Golf is said to use the eSIM card that's used in the new Touareg, meaning the new Golf will be permanently connected to the internet.
Some of the main features that this brings are hybrid radio (the radio will automatically find the station with the strongest signal, 3D mapping as well as the option to find out live pricing from nearby fuel stations.
Autonomous driving will also take precedence in the new Golf.
Whilst we have a good idea of what the new Golf will look like as a result of spy shots published online, we still don't know how the interior will look in its final form. From the sketch, it's clear that Volkswagen will take a more minimalist approach and do away with physical buttons, replaced with a stretched driver's display.
