If you want a break from all the news about the upcoming Geneva Motor Show then we have something for you: fresh spy shots of the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf set to be released this Fall at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. The model was caught testing in its three-door version, but as you can see, it wears the same camouflage as the previous mule spied.

The future Golf VII will be built on Volkswagen’s new "Modularer Querbaukasten" MQB platform - that will be seen for the first time next month in the new generation Audi A3 when it debuts in Geneva. This new platform will make the model longer and wider, as well as about 100 lbs lighter than the current generation. Volkswagen will try to keep the Golf formula intact, but there will be changes made to the car’s design, on both the exterior and interior.

It has been rumored that the new Golf VII will be offered with a new range of engines, more powerful and more fuel efficient. Volkswagen will also be offering a plug-in hybrid with 246 HP capable of more than 50 mpg.

Lilia_Endrizzi, it’s a different Mercedes we used to know. As you can see, it has four doors considering the front is gulled-wing while the rear is on suicidal. I strongly suggest that this concept must be pushed to production.

I don’t get the camouflage concept when you can clearly spot it because it stands out. Aside from that, the stated performance seems reliable and efficient.

Oh well, as I heard from rumors, it looks like that it is right. The seventh generation of Volkswagen Golf seems to be wider and longer. Aside from that, there seems to be something different on the front-end view. Maybe, they made some customization on the hood and bumper.
