The new Volkswagen Golf is set to break cover in Wolfsburg in about a week, on October 24, 2019, and Volkswagen is pointing to the model’s history for an idea of how the eighth-generation car will improve on the outgoing version.

Although the company has only presented sketches of the new hatchback, it is saying it has enhanced the strengths that have made Golf a worldwide top-seller — efficient engines and improved agility, thanks to enhanced suspension technology.

Volkswagen is also promising cutting edge digitalization, connectivity (both for occupants and online-based functions and services) and assisted driving features.

Sketches show a more dynamic exterior, but sketches often promise a lot more than the actual production car delivers. The design is instantly recognizable as a Golf, primarily from the side, with the front end apparently moving the grille low in the fascia, stretching full width. The interior promises fresh colours and fabrics, to complement a new digital cockpit.

The new Golf is due in dealerships in December 2019.
