      It didn't take long for our readers to find the online configuration tool on VWAG's website and discover that there are two-door Golf renderings. Here is what it looks like...

      Would love to see some "real world" photos. These offical renderings are almost a tease

      Just like the 5-door, this design is clean, balanced, and tailored. Only the lower front air-dam is perhaps busier than it needs to be.

      The Golf isn't supposed to be an exciting, exotic design --leave that to the Italians, this is an everyday German hatchback, for crying out loud.

      For the Golf's intended purpose, I think VW knocked it out of the park with this one. It makes overwrought Hyundais and Mazdas look like jokes.

      This is good design.

      Rumoured GTD please!

      2.0L TDI /w 200hp and GOBS of torque - if the base is getting 62 MPG COMBINED! I would settle for 60 MPG highway...that is enough power to put a basic 4-motion or Quattro in there too, just saying VW / Audi, just saying...

      from the MK5 to MK6 , they have real nice changes , but from the mk6 to mk7 don´t like it.

      The MK7 looks to simple , I think VW is losing the aggressive look with the GTI, with the arrival of former mk6 gti had taken up that feeling of super car, but again turns to see a simple 2-door car.

      By that way the company will vw, with the change of line on cars, I remember that before between one model and another had five years apart, now only spend three years and now we see a new version

      I'm not sure why you would compare the Mk6 GTI to the Mk7 Golf. Of course a GTI will look more aggressive and sporty than a regular Golf. The Mk6 Golf looks so boring and blah but the MkVI GTI looks great in comparison. The MkVI Golf looks better than the MkVI Golf, IMO!

      They look exactly the same if you ask me. I do notice a difference when comparing a MKVI and a MKVII though

      I like what I see so far from the Golf, it's plain and simple as a Golf is supposed to be. Definitely I'll wait for the GTI to make a final decision on the looks but I'm sure it will look great.

      I love my MKVI GTI and will probably move to the MKVII GTI sometime in 2014.

      This was posted elsewhere, but it is a good reference when discussing both cars. You need to compare a stock Golf 6 and stock Golf 7 to make a fair comparison:

      Those pictures help with the comparison quite a bit. I admit I like the Golf 7 more than the Golf 6.

      I see something I haven't seen since MkI...



      ...a 2-door rear window kink! I thought we'd be lucky to drop the curvy MkV-MkVI rear side glass, but I had no idea we'd see a return to square with a kink.

      I'm liking this generation more and more all the time. It may not beat out MkII and MkIV, and it may not be a huge progression from the MkVI, but it looks very nice. Some really cool touches.

      Those are definitely not the same wheels. The spoke spacings are different.

      sorry for the mis-type...I meant look SIMILAR to them, thus the compliment to VW if they're adding to their lineup

      I'm not sure how I feel about the 2-dr A7 Golf; this could be a situation where I actually prefer the 4-dr (and would consider buying it over the 2-door) - obviously, subject to the big "let's wait and see what the GTI looks like" caveat.

      I'm sort of torn, because I owned an 89 Golf and much later an 89 GTI 16V that had the flat window line, and I loved those cars. But from a styling standpoint, I really like the swept-up window line that curves towards the rear on my A5 cars, and my A6 GTI. It makes them look "haunchy" and kind of muscular IMO, especially from the rear 3-quarter view. The 2-door pictured above looks kind of dumpy, especially from the front 3-quarter view - I know, it's a fairly basic model...it reminds me a lot of past Audi A3s in profile, not a terrible thing, but not particularly sporty, either.

      The new mk7 looks more like an evolution of the mk4 than the mk5/6 and I like it..

      Imo the 2 door suits this design way better than the 4 door. In both cases I am not liking the droopy looking rear end. The one area that they hit the bulls eye is balancing the front & rear overhang, they appear to have reduced the front overhang to mid-engine-like proportions. Cant wait to see the 2 door GTI.
      I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.

      in my opinion i think this looks way more aggressive than the 6, which looks more like a girlier version

      They had to use the kinked window so that we can differentiate it from a MK6.
