Spy shots of the eagerly awaited 7th generation of Volkswagen Golf have surfaced. The pictured mule is still quite heavily disguised, but nonetheless these images can help us to figure out which sort of direction the Wolfspurg-based manufacturer is currently weighing up in the development of its historic model.
The new Golf is expected to debut worldwide at some point in the second half of 2012, with a slightly different and yet more aggressive design. The pictured model appears to be wider than the current version, and it might have lost a couple of inches in height too. Besides, that windscreen seems to be more steeply raked.
Apparently, these changes are intended to make both 3 and 5 door configurations of the next Golf distigushingly different from the next Golf Plus, which will be re-designed as well in order to have it clearly positioned in its role of compact 5 seat MPV for the VW range. Rumor has it that the 3-door version of the next Golf will be rather more sporty than its 5 door counterpart.
