2024 VW Golf Gets Light-Up Emblem

VW CEO Teases Mk8 Golf Refreshment

After several sightings of the updated Volkswagen Golf in spy shots, VW has teased the “Golf 8.5” in a video that celebrates the automaker’s achievements this year. The video offers a brief glimpse of the car, which appears to feature a revised front end with a more angular grille and slimmer headlights.

The brightly shining badge on the front of the vehicle caught our eyes right away, which was an element not noticed in the former spy photos. The backlit insignia is combined with a wide LED band observed on the Golf R. It also has a redesigned headlight assembly that appears less flashy than the current version.

VW Highlights 2023

Little information about the vehicle was released. We managed to spot a roof shelf momentarily, so the puzzling car quite possibly could be its station wagon version. Being that it is a marketplace not fond of wagons, it is unlikely for it to become available in the US together with the base Golf edition.

The overhauled Volkswagen Golf is expected to make its appearance in the United States of America in both R and GTI models. Retaining its 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain, it should be capable of yielding up to 315 horsepower. A slight increase in performance on the traditional internal combustion engine would certainly be welcomed, as seen with the exclusive Golf R 333 that stands at 333 metric horses – an ideal conclusion to the preceding Internal Combustion Engine Sport versions prior to going completely electric by 2028.

The six-gear manual gearbox might still exist in its current format despite speculation that it could be phased out for Euro 7 requirements. Whether it is bespoke to the GTI model is yet unconfirmed.

Presently, Volkswagen’s divulging is confined to the vanguard illumination adorning integrated into their mid-cycle revamp bundle, with allusions to an open declaration come 2024.

Taking a look back on 2023, Volkswagen reflected upon some of its greatest accomplishments. In particular, the company released the VW ID.7, designed to rival the ever-popular Tesla Model 3. Furthermore, the automaker gave us a glimpse at their upcoming all-electric version of the Golf in the form of the ID.2all concept.
