Spy Shots: Volkswagen Golf VII Spied Testing
The new generation Volkswagen Golf VI has only been on sale for a short time, but the company is already testing the seventh generation. This decision stems from the fact that the sixth generation Golf wasn’t anywhere near as successful as the first or the fourth generation, so Volkswagen is amping up its efforts and bringing in a new impressive design language and a more powerful and fuel efficient engine.
The new Golf VII will be longer and wider, while its exterior design will be more aggressive and sporty. The engine line-up will include turbocharged, direct-injection diesel and gasoline engines, but a plug-in hybrid and a fully electric version have also been rumored.
The new Golf VII will be launched in late 2012 and will be offered in three and five door versions, with a station wagon and a Golf Plus for the European market. There will also be a GTI and a cabrio version.
