These are the first pictures of the new Mk7 Volkswagen Golf. Caught undergoing initial testing in Germany’s Eiffel mountains, we’ll see the first variants arrive in 2012.
The new Golf will sit on the Volkswagen Group’s new flexible MQB platform, which will first be used on the 2011 Audi A3. It’s flexible enough that it’ll also sit under the new Passat, due in late 2011. Underpinning the Mk7 it should shave 130kg off the Mk6’s kerbweight.
