German “Automobilwoche” is reporting that VW will launch the next-generation VW Golf already next year.
Didn’t the Golf MK6 just come out? Well, it appeared in late 2009, and some alleged it wasn’t a full generation, facelift would have been the better term. Maybe that’s why Volkswagen is in a rush to introduce the next generation Golf, the Mk7 “by end of 2012,” reports Automobilwoche [sub].
The Mk7 will be the first Volkswagen to be built with the new “MQB” erector kit. “MQB” stands for “Modularer Querbaukasten” (“Modular Transverse Matrix”).
