2019 Volkswagen Golf.jpg

Volkswagen Golf. 2019 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door saloon. F/F, 999 cm³ (I3 DOHC), 13 kWh–1395 cm³ electric–petrol hybrid, 1498 cm³ petrol, 1968 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC). On a MQB platform as predecessor, eighth-generation Golf débuted a new logo for Volkswagen (gentler, in a hope of discarding the negativity of Dieselgate earlier in the 2010s), and hybrids launched at the same time as the rest of the range (both plug-in and 1·5 with 48 V mild hybrid functions). Same wheelbase, width and height down, length up 20 mm; smaller frontal area, with claimed reduction in fuel consumption. High-tech, with claims of assisted driving working at up to 210 km/h, and swarm intelligence data from other vehicles up to 800 m away to warn of hazards. Digital dashboard with head-up display.
