      i heard VW will make touch screen audio as standard for almost all of their models,
      so then..they should make air suspension as standard too, especially on Golf/Gti

      My guess is I will love the chassis and engines, but hate the exterior. Obviously too soon to tell, but that has always been the case with Golf's for me. Hated the MKIII, loved the MKIV, hated the MKV, loved the MKVI.

      Hi, everyone. Been lurking quite a bit since recently considering the purchase of a Golf TDI or Golf R.

      I came across the pictures below a little while ago.

      Quoting the article it says:

      "Our spies have snapped a new batch of pictures of the 2012/2013 Golf and Golf GTI.
      Dressed in heavy camouflage, the models have a familiar shape but previous reports have indicated the car will have a steeper windshield, a wider track and a lower roofline. Inside, the cabin is rumored to adopt a new instrument panel that is angled towards the driver for improved usability.
      Additional information is limited, but the Golf will ride on the MQB platform and feature a variety of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines. Most notably, the GTI is slated to have an upgraded 2.0-liter TSI that develops 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS)."

      why did you hate the mk3?...it is still the best looking vw golf,gti EVER made...it came with the 12v vr...and a lot of great options from the factory at the time???

      i think vw has gone downhill since the mk3...
      also cant believe how quick there changing models lately...mk1, mk2 and mk3 were built for 8 years or so...

      the last bunch of shots look better, I know there's a bunch of cladding on the car, but not sure if I like the front or not, something's off.

      Wait and see I guess.

      while zacher makes a good point i have to say the best all around was the mk2 gti. it was the best mix of soul and fun along with some performance and handling. The mk3 was ok in looks but basically a softer and less responsive mk2, the mk4s were bland except for the 2004.5 gli. the mk5 was a great technical car... terrible style. The mk6 i think is a great looking gti and a good technical machine. I hope they keep up the good work.

      while mk2 is most nimble, you gotta give it up for mk3 in the looks dept...a proper drop, is all you need to make a mk3 a head turner...BY far the prettiest hatch vw has made...EVER
      and whats up with a model change every 4 years now

      Comparison with the earlier clay model leaked images...






      Looks spot on to me, the slope of the windshield is the same, but the grill in the clay model is thinner than what's on the camo-golf. A thinner grill would be consistent with the style introduced by the VW up!.

      I agree that the even generations have been my favorites, stylistically speaking and in some ways dynamically speaking. The MkII's were more polished looking than their predecessors and had the 16v, the MkIV's were perhaps the most ahead of their time in the style department and had the 24v VR6, and the MkVI's have the MkV's engineering goodness in a wrapper that isn't stupid to look at.

      A few thoughts... a few have posted about generations getting shorter. You have to remember that the Golf VI is *really* just a heavily-face-lifted Golf V. So, in Euro years, the Golf V has technically been around from 2004 until 2012/3 (est) which is one of the longer durations of a generation. The facelift was called a new generation partly because there were so many new parts and partly to distance it from the MkV which was largely a disappointing turd in the styling and sales departments.

      Lastly... about the clay model. It's easy to see that the spy shots have photographed a sharp crease below the door handles that runs the length of the car. This reminds me a little of the MkI-II years, so I think I'll like that. But regardless, the clay model is slab-sided and doesn't have any crease. It stands to reason that it was one in a series of evolving designs that didn't make the final cut. Some elements of that clay design may end up on the final car, but I wouldn't expect that model to closely resemble the final product. Just my thought.

      I totally agree. We won't know what elements are incorporated into the final design until the Paris Auto Show or until we get better spy shots. Quick, someone call Brenda Priddy!

      I'm having a dilemma waiting for the VII. I have an 04 Jetta Wagon and an 11 A4. I use the Jetta for work but I don't like having two cars. I just want one. Both are paid off and I wanted to sell both and buy either a TDI or a GTI but I know that I'm going to be pissed when the MKVII comes out.

      Like someone else mentioned though. Love MKIV's, hate MKV's, and love the VI's.

      Here is a rendering and latest intel

      http://nordschleifeautoblahg.blogspo...-golf-gti.html

      The all new Mk7 Golf will improve on many levels. The latest news suggests a new line of powertrains including a plug-in hybrid version with 243bhp and 50mpg, a twin-turbo 2.0L diesel version with 220bhp for the GTD, and a turbo 2.0L with 260bhp for the GTI.

      Also new for the GTI, will be an electronically controlled front differential that will deliver more agile steering behavior claimed by VW. They have even said the new system on prototypes was able to run the Nürburgring 8 seconds faster than those without it.

      With the new MQB platform, all-wheel drive will be an option on all Golf models. More aluminium will be used throughout and the overall weight will be close to the Mk4 (approximately 2850 pounds).

      On the inside, an 8 inch iPad-style dashboard touchscreen will come standard along with some other high-tech goodies.

      It is expected to be unveiled this September at the Paris motor show.

      Those are NCC headlights. Aka Jetta headlights. Aka should-have-been GLI/Hybrid lights. I know that this just a rendering, but I'm going to be SUPER PISSED if VW greedily reserves the NCC headlights for the Golf and not the Jetta. The Jetta Hybrid was just announced with dorkier/blander xenon headlights... if those headlights come to the Golf, then the Jetta had better be getting a facelift to match.

      Not sure how I will like this one. I do not like the design direction VW is going with their universal front and rears.

      so far so good. those tail lights are damn sexy, almost look like an s5's if you ask me. looks like VW might finally produce a car stock low

      There are some slight differences between the last three renderings - the character line below the windows, the shape of the C-pillar where it lines up with the door. If you look at the camo photos there is some sort of lengthwise character line roughly where the red rendering also shows it, which the two silver renderings don't have. Still, these are minor differences. The general idea of those renderings is probably accurate. (I like it.)
