Here’s a look at the new Golf VII or Golf 7 with a test mule doing the rounds in Germany. While still very similar in style, the new Golf will have a wider wheelbase than the current Golf 6, but more technical details are likely to emerge in the future.
The Golf 6 seems to be a transition model for the brand, and its production end has been earmarked for December 2011, giving it a very short life span. According to leaked reports from Volkswagen, less than 1.6 million Golf models are expected to be sold.
The new Golf 7 will have a new engine line-up and will adopt more environmental solutions, with the possibility even, of alternative fuels being used. Hybrid and highly efficient diesel models are also planned, and the Golf 7 will share the same MQB platform as Audi’s new A3.
