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
