      The VW Group already has a 7-speed DSG in production, but it has a lower torque rating than the 6-speed. We know the upcoming Jetta Hybrid (with 1.4 TSI engine) will be using the 7-speed.

      I suspect the reality is that there is no new transmission (for now), the 7-speed DSG will be used on the smaller, lower-powered engines (up to and including the 1.4 TSI) and the engines with higher torque output (TDI, 2.0 TSI) will stay with the 6-speed, and the new 1.8 TSI is a crapshoot that could go either way.

      Time will tell ...

      See my reference to the TT-RS, but the euro-spec version.

      This is a totally different platform, so I highly doubt it. You will probably see MKVI headlights and aftermarket bumpers out that mimic the MKVII look, though.

      Those are the same bad, blurred renderings that you can see in post #12, on page 1 of this thread.

      I don't think the interior shots are renderings but they photoshopped out everything below the dash and it could be the interior of a different VW model. Doubt we'll be getting the 8" touchscreen in the US along with half the other options.

      Those interior pics just look too unproportionate to be real. Like the left side of the steering wheel is shorter and at a different angle than the right part.

      I found these on the Norwegian VW audi club forum.
      The pictures are from the last autobild.de magazine.

      Hmm...it looks just like someone took the design elements in the blurry photoshops (or whatever they technically are) put them together in a plausible way and made them...less blurry. The text in the box at lower left basically says this represents Auto Bild's best guess. Which isn't to say that I don't believe anything that is depicted will pan out - the steering wheel seems credible to me, at least for a mid-level trim car if not a base one. The area around the shifter, I could buy. The center console doesn't appear to angle towards the driver though, and we'd been led to believe it does. The Climatronic controls appear very similar to the 5th gen. cars, and that would be a surprising step.

      Or may be some one just snap a picture of the new Golf MK7 dash and published it. Lets wait 3 more days and will see...

      Autobild is a weekly publication that comes out the Thursday night/Friday morning the week before. So we believe those to be the real deal.

      We will publish everything we get as soon as we get it and have been cleared to publish it. Just a couple more days...

      Jamie, will they be showing the 2 door Golf on Tuesday as well, or are they saving that for the big GTI reveal later in the month? I'm about as anxious as I've ever been for a new model reveal. I'm looking forward to seeing the Golf VII debut on the homepage!

      I still think these are just renders. The interior one clearly has an automatic transmission, but has a clutch pedal. The gauges are also exactly the same as the ones found on the MK6, but I'm sure VW would change them at least a little bit for the new model. Also the white Golf appears to be some sort of hybrid model, as theres no visible exhaust cutout. Can't wait to see the official images

      After looking closer at the pictures, its a rendering with several oddities.
      As mention a bow, auto and 3 pedals.
      The accelerator pedal is WRONG, its a floor mounted, its going to be like the new audi a3, (that is confirmed from vw Norway.)

      I'm also going to retract what I said about the climate controls, as I think that is what the Climatronic will look like in the new cars. Today, I happened to sit in a GTI convertible, the latest and I guess last Mk6 variant to be produced (except the Golf R cab that is also supposed to see the light of day) and lo and behold, it had the climate controls you see above. So I suppose that is a bit of a sneak preview of the new generation, in a Mk6 car.

      EDIT: Here they are, in the website photos of the GTI cab interior: http://www.volkswagen.de/de/models/g...st_mediaitem_4

      It looks like they based the PS pictures on this and made the changes we see.

      Could be--honestly--even the "real" photos of recent new VW's kind of look fake and over photoshopped--which I dislike.

      Seriously, that interior looks amazing. Very BMWish. I hope the dash looks more like this but I think it's highly unlikely. This is either a) a very nice, but not VW rendering. b) an actual VW rendering, but for a totally different model that we will never get c) This is the real deal and really awesome.

      Things to note: Old style automatic shifter, not the current rounder style. The doors, guages, other sections of the dash are straight out of the MKVI.

      Can't wait until the fourth...

      I agree 200%. The dash layout seems to be directly mimicking the Jetta from the location of buttons to the shape of the vents and flow of the bezels. It just looks classier/more modern. It's like the midpoint between the Jetta NCC coupe dash and what really came in the Jetta.

      If the Autobilde picture is accurate, I feel that the outside of the Golf VII is also moving in the direction of the Jetta. Rather than starting a new design language, which is usually the case with the Golf, the VII seems to be heavily relying on the Jetta. The tails and headlights are very similar to the Jetta VI. The biggest differences are the front air dam and the rear view mirror mounting (the latter of which I'm not crazy about).

      All in all, this rendering looks a lot more like the Jetta VI than the Golf VI. Which is good news for Jetta fans because the new hatch shouldn't age the sedan much. In fact, the Jetta *could* benefit from the Golf's front bumper styling and dash upgrades. Can't wait to see how spot-on this is.

      Yeah, but sadly does not fit to this quote from the official VW technical preview:

      "At the middle of the centre console, beneath the hazard flasher switch, is the five- to eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with its menu keys and dials."

      So I'd guess that the Autobild picture is closer to the truth. Actually, I'd believe that it shows the real deal, Autobild has pretty good connections to the German car industry.

      I too believe that this photo is accurate, VW in their official preview did mention that the gear lever will be higher and closer to the steering wheel, it is obviously closer to the steering wheels in this photo, makes it a better drivers car too. This is the thing that I like with VW, its the little details they get done right.
      I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.

      VW actually has two 7-speed DSGs in production. The low-torque (dry clutch) version that will be standard in the Jetta Hybrid, and the high-torque (wet clutch) version that's currently used with the 2.0 TDI (140hp) 4Motion and 2.0T 4Motion Tiguans in Europe and the UK.

      I'm not crazy at all about this rather boring interior layout, but I don't think it's real anyway.
