Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess introduced the new Golf 8 at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg, Germany. The model, which has sold more than 35 million so far, has 5 hybrid options, three of which are lightweight and two are plug-ins. The length of the Golf 8 has been increased to 4284 mm and the width, height and axle distance values have been announced as 1789, 1456 and 2636 mm. The most striking change at the new Golf was on the front. It is equipped with a thinner headlight and thin front grille compared to the old version.
The new Golf 8 will be available with the engine options used in the Golf 7. 1.0lt turbo TSI engines, 90 or 110 horsepower. 1.5lt petrol turbo TSI engines, respectively, will offer 130 and 150 horsepower. Diesel engines, 1.5 or 2.0lt. TDI options are left to users’ preference. In the new generation, Volkswagen has abandoned analogue displays and uses the ID3 system introduced in Frankfurt last summer. Moreover, this digital change, the vehicle will not add an added price.
Embracing the Innovision Cockpit layout, which we know from Touareg, the Golf 8 comes with a 10.25-inch digital dashboard and a 8.25-inch multimedia display in one piece. Headlight controls carried on the top of the panel, designed as touch. Front and rear window heating settings can be made from the same section.
