2013 Volkswagen Golf VII rendered
Volkswagen’s biggest dream is to become the No. 1 car brand by 2018. And lets face it, the current generation Golf isn’t helping out that much. This is why the company decided to bring out the next one in 2013, one year earlier than initially planned.
With the next generation Polo looking quite awesome, the Golf VII will have to come with a styling that will differentiate it from the rest of the hatchbacks in Volkswagen’s lineup. The car will grow in dimensions to offer a better interior space and, according to Volkswagen, it will feature "higher-quality materials and some innovative features" translated into an eight-inch touch screen on top of the center console.
The next Golf will will share the new Modulare Querbaukasten (MBQ) architecture with the next Audi A3, also due out in 2013. Under the hood there will be the same turbocharged and direct-injected (TSI) gasoline four-cylinder engines, with displacement between 1.2 and 2 liter and a possible hybrid version.
