Lately i’m FAR more interested in modern cars than classics, and my appreciation of living in the now has created this buzz within me. I’ve never owned a VW Golf, however i’ve come very close to by owning a MK1 Audi TT and an Audi A3—both of which share chassis with their respective Golf counterparts. This new MK7 Golf looks SUPERB and has an exciting, crisp, and modern design without all the Korean/Japanese ‘overdesign’ elements flooding the automotive world. What surprises me most, though, is how this MK7 takes cues from older Golfs more than the MK5 or MK6 did. In fact, i see a lot of MK4 in the rear end. Very interesting!
There’s nothing better than a nice, balanced hot hatch in my books. Affordable, fun, and without care of status or pomp. I am really excited about the new A3 and i’m also excited about this new Golf. Here’s waiting for the S/RS and GTI/R versions of these cars!
Globally….it’s probably one of the most important car launches this year. The Golf is truly an international car, and what a great overall car it is.
oh…and it’s 220 pounds lighter than the last generation (!!!).
