Default 2020 Volkswagen Golf Mk 8/VIII




First official images have leaked and the full reveal is tomorrow, so I figured I’d start the thread. No surprises so far.

There's something a bit more "upright" and perhaps a bit more upscale in the design? While obviously a Golf, something about it looks more Audi than VW, although I can't put my finger on why.

Looks like there's no hard buttons for the HVAC? Ew (esp since I do not suspect VW reliability will improve w/ this generation).

There is something incredibly dated, dull, and forgettable about the design.

Did someone hit the snooze button on this new Golf. The interior looks incredibly complicated.

It's a nip/tuck pretending to be all new.

It kind of seems VW stopped the evolution of the VW Golf design with the Mk. 5; This seems to be again a reskin of the previous gen, like the Ml. 6 was of the Mk. 5, and the only new exterior detail - the headlights - look cheap and Asian, nothing that a Golf should be.

The interior will probably again- like many recent VAG interiors, trade screens for material quality, it does seem more shiny than before, but the touch only switchgear also seems small and not user friendly

Except it shares no panels. Even the wheelbase is longer.
