A group of photos of new golf models have been exposed online, including the modified golf regular version, travel version and GTI model. It is understood that the medium-term modified golf is built based on MQB Evo platform, adjusting the appearance and interior decoration, and is expected to be introduced into the domestic market before the end of the year.

This change is mainly to adjust the front face modeling. The new golf adopts a brand-new light group, and the front position is equipped with a through-type light-emitting lamp belt. With the light-emitting LOGO, the overall appearance has the visual sense of the new energy vehicle, and at the same time, the overall recognition is improved. Depending on the version, it continues to offer three styles of front bar styling. GTI models still feature the classic red through design, with a more aggressive shape on the front bumper, making the vents on both sides look more combative. The regular version will offer the R-Line package as an option, while the version without the package features a large size through-vent design on the front bumper and a double chrome trim on the interior grille.

On the side of the body, the overall shape of the new car is similar to that of the current model, with a standard hatchback structure. At the rear of the car, the new golf styling is more sporty, equipped with a large size roof spoiler and rear diffuser, retaining a two-out exhaust layout on both sides, showing the classic elements of GTI.

On the interior side, the new car will be equipped with a 10.25-inch all-LCD dashboard and a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel with a classic GTI logo, and the center console will be equipped with a 12.9-inch or 15-inch OLED multimedia touch screen depending on the model. The in-vehicle system will integrate ChatGPT big data model to provide a better in-vehicle interaction experience. The overall on-board display information is more comprehensive, including navigation, multimedia and speed limit reminders.

In terms of power, the upcoming regular version of the Golf will be equipped with a 1.5T turbocharged engine and a 48V light hybrid system, as well as a plug-in hybrid system. In terms of drivetrain, the new car will still be equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It is reported that this will be the last mid-term change of golf, after which golf will no longer introduce replacement models, meaning that this model series sold since 1974 will usher in the final ending.

In October 2019, the eighth generation Golf was officially released in Wolfsburg, the birthplace of Volkswagen. The new car is based on the latest version of Volkswagen MQB platform. It provides 1.0T three-cylinder engine, 1.5T four-cylinder engine and 2.0T four-cylinder diesel engine in terms of power. In November 2020, FAW-Volkswagen brand-new Golf was launched. As a replacement model, the brand-new Golf adopts Volkswagen's latest family design language, and the official defines this generation of models as "brand-new digital golf," emphasizing the digital and intelligent improvement of the new car. In terms of power, the eighth-generation Golf offers 1.2T and 1.4T engines for consumers to choose from, consistent with the previous generation.

The real contact with golf in China starts from the fourth generation of FAW-Volkswagen, from PQ platform to MQB platform, plus derived GTI and R version, the evolution of each generation of golf is a topic that everyone talks about. Today, golf has evolved into the eighth generation, but more electrical architecture and software changes, mechanical level and not much new.

As a classic Volkswagen model, Golf's performance in the domestic market is not bad. As a hatchback, Golf's competitors include Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Nissan Trent, Chevrolet Volando, etc. In contrast, golf, with its more fashionable shape and digital blessing, brings it a certain degree of market competitiveness, and the new car will still maintain its existing results after it goes on the market. According to the Federation, golf retail sales in 2023 were 55732, down 31.8% from 81754 in 2022.

As Volkswagen accelerates the electrification of its products, more and more classic models are painted. Of course, the suspension of classic models such as golf may be inevitable. Of course, the trend of new energy vehicles replacing fuel vehicles is particularly obvious, and Volkswagen is only conforming to the development of the market.
