This will be the VW Golf VIII, in which Volkswagen invests 1.8 billion euros

Many thought that because of Dieselgate it was written off but the main engine will be modernized, it will clean 1.6 TDI with 116KS, alongside it a 3-cylinder turbo gasoline 1.0 TSI with 85 and 110 hp.

Although the Frankfurt IAA’19 showroom is in Frankfurt for the next year, it is a little over 11 months old, but now it is well known that the Volkswagen Golf will be the eighth generation. We looked at the rendering, and the German Autozeitung has now released new, credible visions.

Already now, in cooperation with Bosch, it is aligned (new particle filter DPF and AdBlue for killing NOx) with the EU6d Temp environmental norms, which come into force on September 1, 2019, that is, overwhelmingly surpasses them and is also prepared for ‘real’ EU6d norms, expected in 2021.

About the quality and characteristics of the new Volkswagen’s trumpet is enough to “speak” the development budget of as much as 1.8 billion euros. So, Golf remains Golf, ‘King of Compass’, and measures for everyone else …  Rendering: Autozeitung.de
