Wolfsburg - Volkswagen has released a picture of a Golf 8 prototype, ahead of the vehicle’s official unveiling, which is set to take place in the next few months.
Although the vehicle is disguised, the camo is light enough to give us a good idea of how the new hatch will look, and if that doesn’t there are plenty of pictures of supposedly undisguised vehicles doing their rounds on the interwebs.
The eighth-generation Golf will be a real “eye-catcher” with “powerful” and “elegant” proportions, says VW’s head designer, Klaus Bischoff.
From what we can decipher, though, it still appears to be a playing-it-safe evolution of the current car, retaining a familiar silhouette as well as its characteristic slim grille, but the body does appear wider and shapelier, with wider wheel arches to boot.
