      Jamie's article on the MQB says the platform will be 88-132 lbs lighter. Where is the extra weight loss coming from?

      New welding techniques "around 150 pounds lighter than the Mk6 (which is essentially a slightly modified Mk5) thanks to molten-molded, extra high-strength steel used throughout the chassis, along with reworked suspension components, lightened engines and auxiliary bits. "

      I believe the 88-132 may be for Golf?

      I am quoting the below Top Gear Article.

      The extra weight savings over the current GTI is stated to be 220lbs due to aluminum roof.

      Ok I stretched a little on my 250-300lbs... I just need to loose a bit of weight.

      In reality this is the next gen from the MK5.

      I am excited if it is as described.

      As long as they can keep the NVH at MK6 levels sign me up.
      My thoughts exactly. And it isn't really too soon because it will be a while before it makes it to the states after its release in Europe.

      Thanks for posting up the Top Gear article. Mk7 seems like a pretty exciting evolution of the Golf/GTi. I may just hold on to the R until then. Hopefully the Mk7 comes out with the a la carte options like the 2010 GTi instead of these stupid packages.

      Yeah the camo disquise does a good job of what it's meant to do so honestly if you told me this was an MKVI I'd believe it.

      I'm sure the styling won't be drastically different than the current MKVI which to me is a good thing.
      So will the MKVII's actually be sold in 2013 or are we going to have to go through the usual waiting game of it coming out a year or two later, after they release it in Europe?

    9. 02-24-2012 12:34 PM #44
      looking at the front end, I see the corporate headlights, ala Passat. Maybe someone can photoshop a Passat front end on a Golf VI and then you get the Golf VII.

      That's pretty standard... its a test car.

      Even if this isnt a base Golf they probably didn't want to show any design cues from the headlights anyway.

      Projectors... LED's etc.

      Besides on the MK6 GTI and Golf TDI its an option so I would think the MK7 would be the same way.

      The longer wheel base gave the designers wings. The car apparently has a cab-forward design allowing a steeply sloped windshield which in return leads to lower roofline. Also, the cammo cannot hide the strong sholder lines. I like what I see.
      I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.

      I do not like the body of the mk V and mk VI compared to my Mk IV. The back of the hood is way too tall, making it look pudgy. The lights/front face on the Mk VI is better than the Mk V, however.

      The GTI's gonna need more than 230hp to keep up power-wise with the other leading hatches. It should be in the 250-270hp range standard. I've driven the new Golf R and it's nice, but no quantum leap by any means. The car is superior to it's competitors in every other category. An 'R' model should be around 300hp+ by now. The MKIV's came out in the NAR in 2004 (holy sh*t, almost 10 years ago already), and even with a different power plant, they're only making +/- 10 more hp than that model. Come on Volkswagen, 'mo powa!

      Cost cutting for production.

      The MK5 was too expensive to build.

      The MK6 Golf was quieter, had a better interior and was cheaper to make than the MK5.

      My wife's MK6 golf was much nicer than my MK5 GTI.

      Here is a good video explaining.



      Here is another good mk5 vs mk6 vid.

      From the "What we know about the 2013 Volkswagen Golf, next-gen GTI" at the AutoECommerce story: http://autoecommerce.org/what-we-kno...-next-gen-gti/

      Because of the new manufacturing and material processes, parts costs will be cut by around 20 percent and manufacturing costs will be reduced by one-third, meaning the next Golf should be less expensive than the current model, while packing even more content, providing more power and even better handling. Sell that alongside the current GTI and people will ask, “Why upgrade?” We wouldn’t either, but then again, we’d wait for the next GTI anyway, or maybe that oil-burning GTD…

      I pray the GTD makes it to the US this time around Volvo got me all hot and bothered with the new V40 debut, but it's NOT coming to the USA (yet).

      VW sells 500,000 Golfs a year in Europe.

      If we had those numbers here we would be getting one.

      We are going to start realizing that China and India will start getting the good stuff... US is no longer an emerging market.

      ^^^

      That looks like an Alfa or a Honda Civic.

      No way would that be the Golf.

      No corporate styling cues and too edgy and drastic for VW design.

      I do remember seeing that awhile back in one of the mags, and at the time, it was attributed to VW.

      Personally I hope it stays as a concept.... its ugly imo.

      No, it was the golf. Not saying that's what the new golf will be, just what the article said. If I remember correctly, it was about the time when VW took over ItalDesign. Might just be a "study".

    30. 03-05-2012 09:56 AM #65
      Agree with you, I found it quite hideous. If that's even close to the final, I'm getting the R32 MK6 and call it a day

    31. 03-05-2012 07:15 PM #66
      You can rest assured that that sketch is not accurate. I see several things straight away that are either inconsistent with the spy shots and/or would never make it to a practical production vehicle.

    32. 05-07-2012 02:41 PM #67
      ^ Looks more like a Ford Fiesta than anything.

      I'm not sure what to think about the spy shots. Doesn't look bad, but I'm scared that they will get rid of the rounded headlights and create something similar to those awful renderings of the car.

      Also I'm disappointed that they didn't get rid of the shoulder line. The c-pillar looked so much better without it, and it's what gave the MK2 and MK4 such a solid German look.
