The completely camouflage-free vehicle offers us our best look at the eighth-generation hatch ahead of its launching at the end of the month.
We’ve seen minimally-disguised models, main model images and sketches aplenty, however, these most current images reveal the front and interior of the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf in all its undisguised splendor.

These images were posted overnight by Som fanúšik Volkswagenov, a Slovakian Facebook fan group. However, it’s unclear how the group acquired these images.
Judging by the wheel and tire mix, this car seems an entry-level or near-entry-level model. The slimmer, rounder headlights, and the body color strakes along the lower air intake provide the new Golf a softer appearance.
While the exterior is decidedly evolutionary, the interior has taken a larger leap forward with the multi-tier dashboard a clear departure from a previous couple of generations.
Even on this low-spec model, there’s a wide curved screen location, which houses both the instruments ahead of the driver and a touchscreen infotainment system in the center.
2021 Volkswagen Golf Engine
The new Golf will be offered as both a five-door hatch and wagon. It will be powered by a selection of turbocharged petrol and diesel motor, many rumored to feature a 48V moderate hybrid system.
More power is expected for the hot GTI and plug-in hybrid GTE models, although the GTE is unlikely to discover its method Down Under. The e-Golf will not make it through the transition, its place in the company’s range will be taken by ID.3, which rides on a dedicated EV platform.
We will not have long to wait till we see the new Golf in full, and discover its new technology features and upgraded drivetrains, as the car will be introduced on October 24, European time.
Sales across Europe begin in December this year. However, the Australian launch of the Mark VIII won’t happen up until the last quarter of 2020.
