      I like it quite a lot. I might be interpreting the images incorrectly, but from what I can see it looks like it has that same design theme from the current GLI and the Cross Coupe where the lines from the grill go straight into matching lines within the headlights. If you look closely, it looks like they painted the signature red GTI stripes in the grill black (to hide them), and that these painted black lines match up exactly with similar lines in the headlights. I also see LED tails, which should please some of those that have been clamoring for them.

      There's too much body cladding and camo to tell much else, but it's the usual slow striptease they like to pull on us.
      There’s more to it than that, though. I feel the fast Golf is a part of me. We’ve grown up together. When it came along, all simple and full of fun, I was living in a flat in London. Now it’s soft and luxurious and I’m slouched in a house in the Cotswolds. It’s like 1970s rock music. New stuff comes along which I’m sure is cleaner and better produced but it doesn’t have the heart and soul of the original.

      These are euro spec cars,of course they are going to have led tail lights. The golf that will debut in Paris this sept will also have led tail lights. US spec cars as always will be heavily watered down in some form

      Looks like the Golf will have a panoramic sunroof option

      Those Civic Type R mashups from every no name Euro magazine...

      Just remember... the new A3.

      Hopefully that box & dots above & around the rearview mirror signify a return of the rain sensing windshield wipers & auto lights. Either way, there's clearly a lot more going on with that mirror than just the tacked on piece of glass that recent GTI's have sported. Yes, I realize everything can be decontented for the US...but I'm hopeful.

      Radar cruise-control would be in the grill, presumably, not mounted up that high. Right?

      That's likely the camera for the rumoured lane-keeping, adaptive cruise-control systems.

      Agreed. Looks very promising.

      Headlights are similar to the MK5, directional is a strip at the bottom. I also see that they made an area to put the amber reflector, US version, in the headlight moving it out of the bumper which is a much needed design change.

      I'm beginning to think that is fake. These something that doesn't seem right about the strip.

      Also notice that it doesn't appear on the regular Golf tester.

      The caliper is on the right side of the wheel. The spokes are covering the ends of the caliper so it looks just like the disc. See the next picture in the series. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/images/..._528112_25.jpg

      It's different cause that's the GTI, you can tell from the honeycomb grill and can also see where they took off the GTI badge. It must have upgraded lighting that the golf testers dont...

      I'm fully aware its a GTI. The strip just doesn't look right to me.

      Thanks for the pics XM_Rocks, that new A3 looks sweet. I wonder why they don't offer it in a five door? For looks, I would opt for it over the GTI and the R.

      There will be a 5-door (and 4-door) A3. http://jokeforblog.blogspot.it/2012/...tback-spy.html


      The 4-door is confirmed for North America while the new 5-door is still up in the air.

      Could be right, the headlights look too much like mk5 and that can't be right.

      Porsche is notorious for placing older headlight images over new testing models and that could be the case here.

      It's very easy to print an image and place over the headlights, but still allow light to come through.
      Same material used on bus windows.

      Thanks for the link Hajduk. Wow, the A3 doesn't look as good in a 5 door like I thought it would. That thing looks huge! But, in a different color, more HP, it does give me something else to consider when it somes out. More room equals more versatility. Good find, thanks.

      I have been looking at these spy pic headlights on the GTI very closely and I think they are the real deal! From what I can see, the MKVII Xenon headlight will take design elements from 2 different cars. The new Jetta and the bluesport roadster... The lower part of the headlight will be very similar to the Jetta, housing the directional in a strip at the lower part of the headlight like the MK5. The upper portion will take design elements from the bluesport roadster having two L shaped daytime running lights in each headlight. We won't know for sure till the Paris auto show but I have a feeling I am right.
