2020 VW Golf exterior & cabin pics revealed
First official pictures showing the body and cabin of the new, 8th-gen Volkswagen Golf have recently appeared on the manufacturer’s website. The international premiere is scheduled for October, and the first shipments in Europe are expected in February 2020 or later.
The design sketches let us conclude that the new VW Golf has a lower roofline, new headlights integrated with the narrow front grille, and a larger, more muscular hood cover.
The interior greets the viewer with an all-digital dashboard that makes a smooth transition into a multimedia display. There are hardly any hardware buttons or knobs in view.
Based on an improved MQB architecture, the car is 35 to 70 kilograms lighter than before (77 to 154 pounds; depends on your chosen configuration). It also now offers 400 liters of trunk space (14.1 cubic feet).
The engine palette now includes new 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, a single 1.5-liter diesel, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The 8th-gen VW Golf family will incorporate a performance trim called GTI, rated at 250 hp (186 kW), and a high-end AWD version called R, capable of 350 hp (261 kW).
