So what can you expect from The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf?

Sharper, Stronger and Faster, that's what that is.

  • Sharper

At first glance, you will recognize its one of the Glofs from the general side shape and classic C-pillar design. To the front end, the slimmer headlights are positioned a little lower as well as its nose, emphasizing the center of gravity. 

Its L-shaped taillights are now stretching forward to the front door's handle, forming a new caved line design. VW also gives a fastback-type slope finish to the end. Overall, we see a well-proportioned streamlined body outline on the new VW Golf.
