2019 Golf 8 Rendered In Line With VW’s Latest Models

One of the most successful models not only in Volkswagen’s lineup, but also in the entire automotive industry, the Golf, is set to reach its eighth generation before the turn of the decade.

Coming to replace the popular Mk7 that wears the MQB platform, along with other models produced under the Volkswagen umbrella, the forthcoming compact car is still being shaped by the company’s designers, but RemcoM could be on to something here.

It uses the latest Volkswagen models as inspiration, including the new Tiguan, Europe’s Passat and the next-generation Touareg, which is tipped to show its face sometime next year. It adds different-styled headlights, chromed grille and a more aggressive bumper to the hatch’s front end.

The actual production Golf is expected to ride on a slightly longer wheelbase, lose some weight and add a long list of equipment inside, possibly along with autonomous driving technology. The new Volkswagen Golf 8 is rumored to be ready by the time the current model turns seven, meaning 2019.

    More interested when UK/US get a MK7 Jetta and in case of the UK more petrol choice than just a 1.4TSI in it seeing as the TDI’S now the new evil.
