VW Golf: Next generation will feature net-connected 8-inch touchscreen

VW Golf

The next-generation VW Golf aka VW Golf MkVII will feature a net-connected 8-inch touchscreen. Nice!

The next Golf will have styling to differentiate it from the rest of the hatchbacks in VW’s lineup. Expect edgier bodywork and lower and wider dimensions. Wheelbase and overall length will grow slightly to increase interior volume. There will be no experiments regarding packaging, as a VW ­engineer says: “[Expect] higher-quality materials and some innovative features. That’s it!” What will be new is an eight-inch touch screen on top of the center console that will work like an Apple iPad or iPhone and provide radio controls and navigation, as well as in-car Internet access.
