The Volkswagen Golf has been the pinnacle of hatchback cars since its launch in 1974. There have been seven generations of Golfs, with an eighth now here. According to online figures, the Volkswagen Golf is the third best-selling car model ever produced.
The GTI Golf exemplifies and popularised the hot hatch concept. Around the world, some markets can also buy an e-Golf, a battery-powered electric Golf.
Here are things you need to consider when buying a new Golf.
With so many Golf variations, there's a model to suit everyone.
Any of the Golf wagons would make sense for family buyers, with room for five, plus a great big boot. Trendline, Comfortline and Highline wagons all make sense as a solid family daily driver.
Parents who live up unpaved tracks or like to head out on roads less travelled might go for the Golf AllTrak wagon, which VW describes as an SUV crossed with a wagon.
For those who still want a bit of a sporty family car, take a look at the Golf R Wagon. It's a fiery beast, with 213kW and 380Nm and large 19-inch alloys, plus leather seat appointments.
The Golf GTI is the classic hot hatch and often labelled as the sweet spot in the range. Car reviewers raved about the engine, sweet looks and interior equipment. If you really want to go for something special, the R Golfs are the most powerful and exciting to drive.
VW has confirmed some of the final launch details, as well as releasing some images of near-production ready Golf GTI models. The cars will be officially shown to audiences at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Based on the MK8 Golf, the three GTI models could arrive here in early 2021.
The trims are GTI, GTE and GTD. The main differences are the power source, as the GTE is a plug-in hybrid with a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Meanwhile, the GTD has a torquey 2.0-litre turbo diesel.
The Golf Highline with optional packages fitted has a long spec list and will be a very comfortable, well-equipped hatchback.
Volkswagen has two assembly lines in Germany, one in Wolfsburg (the world's largest car plant) and another in Zwickau, Saxony.
Very soon! From photos we've seen, the design and construction has been pretty much finalised, as production ready test cars have been spotted with heavy prototype camouflage.
The world premiere should happen in the next few weeks, with the first cars reaching debut markets around December 2020.
