Nearly four years after its release, the current eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf is about to usher in a mid-term change. Recently, the latest overseas version of the golf has been exposed in advance. It is reported that the overseas version of the mid-term change golf will be sold in the first quarter, and the domestic version of the new model is expected to be listed this year.
The appearance part of this change is mainly to adjust the front face shape. Although the overall visual effect of the front face of the new model is still very close to the cash, the headlights, the net and the front bumper shape have all been redesigned, and the detailed shapes have been adjusted. The interior part has also been slightly changed. Let’s take a closer look.
In the front face, the outline of the upper and side of the headlight remains unchanged, and the bottom shape is redesigned. The shape of the bottom of the current lamp group is straightened, the shape of the inner side of the lamp group is narrowed, and the outline of the whole lamp group is more tough. In addition, the internal light source structure has also been adjusted. The middle net between the headlight groups has become wider than the current one, and a penetrating light belt has been used.
The shape of the front bumper has also been adjusted. The middle net area on the front bumper is larger, and the upper line of the middle net has also been straightened. According to different versions, three styles of front bumper shapes continue to be provided. The normal version is a horizontal grille design, while the sports version is a black grid grille, and the spoiler shape is more prominent.
The shape of the side part of the car body has not changed much, the creased waistline is very tough, and the generous C-pillar is also the iconic design of golf. This time, the redesigned model will add new wheel hub styles.
The change of the tail is not very big, mainly to adjust the internal light source structure of the taillight, and the new double L-shaped light strip light source design is even more cool.
In the interior part, the overall layout of the center console has not changed much, mainly because the shape of the center console has been adjusted. The border of the center console is no longer connected with the border of the instrument panel, but a larger floating center console is used.
In terms of power configuration, the overseas version of the new golf will provide a 1.5T engine with a light mixing system and a 2.0T high-power engine, while GTE models are expected to be equipped with the latest 1.5T plug-in hybrid system. Based on the current good market performance of ID.3, the current golf is not expected to have a pure electric version.
