The Model Of The 8th Generation From Volkswagen Golf Is Finally Here


The arrival of a new Volkswagen Golf is no big surprise. Since the introduction of the first Golf in 1974, more than 35 million Golfs have been produced in seven generations. The dynasty also accounts for a disproportionate number of our most beloved Volkswagen ever. The new Mark 8 Golf now replaces the current Mark 7 Golf and its gently designed exterior makes it clear that much of the new car is still known.

Much is different, but let's start with
what stays the same. Like its predecessor, the Mark 8 Golf sits on the Volkswagen Group's MQB platform. The dimensions hardly differed from those of the Mark 7, as the overall length was slightly increased by 1.0 inches and the wheelbase by 0.6 inches, but the width and height were slightly reduced.


The Engine

In the middle of the assortment are two more powerful 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline with 128 and 148 hp. If Volkswagen decides to continue regular operation, the more powerful version seems to be the engine that acts as an entry-level engine.

In fact, a six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with some engines offering the option of a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that provides 48-volt hybrid assistance via a belt-driven starter generator. There will also be a pair of plug-in hybrids, both of which use a 1.4-liter petrol engine and a 13.0-kWh battery pack in 201-horsepower and 242-horsepower states (the latter is referred to as GTE). , The E-Golf EV is also dead; VW assumes that the new ID.3 has effectively replaced them.


Screens and Sliders inside

While the exterior design is very similar to that of the current Golf, the interior marks a much more radical departure. The Mark 8 is equipped with a digital instrument cluster as standard, with a large touchscreen in the center of the dashboard, and many functions are performed with the functions described by Volkswagen as "sliders". These touch-sensitive controls will perform things such as the climate-control temperature and the sunroof on the roof console. Thanks to the new Shift-by-Wire DSG transmission, automatic vehicles have a much smaller gear selector switch to create more storage space in the center console. Volkswagen also says the new gearshift allows the DSG to "reverse" while still driving forward at low speed to simplify maneuvering.

Vehicles equipped with the optional active DCC suspension uses these sliders to allow selection of intermediate positions between modes. Beyond the touch interface, the Golf will be equipped with a voice control system that is designed to detect far more complicated instructions than existing systems.

Even more important is the introduction of Car-to-X communication, a short-range data exchange system that allows equipped vehicles to exchange information with each other or even with the road infrastructure. This could mean warnings of accidents or breakdowns of the vehicles in front. In contrast to existing data exchange systems, car-to-X can be operated without mobile infrastructure in ranges of up to half a mile and data is forwarded almost immediately.

What's your say???????
