While the Volkswagen Golf Mk6 has only been on sale since 2009, work on the next-generation Mk7 edition is already well underway. We've been shooting spy photos of prototypes for some time, though the cars are still heavily camouflaged.
But based on previous photos—as well as some insider information—our illustrators have tweaked their original renderings and put together new images of what we believe the next Volkswagen Golf will look like.
The Mk7 2014 Volkswagen Golf is in for a big change underneath. It will be moving to VW's flexible MQB chassis. This same chassis will underpin the next-gen Audi A3 and several other models throughout the Volkswagen AG lineup.
Under the hood, the new Golf will have an equally new 2.0L turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine, good for 170-180 hp. We think this might finally signal the end of VW's ancient 2.5L five-cylinder.
The 2.0L TDi will also continue to be offered, along with a full EV model as well.
Watch for production of the 2014 Volkswagen Golf to start around the middle of 2013.
