Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review

  Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review Volkswagen says the new Mk8 Golf is the most sophisticated Golf there’s ever been, and given it features an almost entirely digital cockpit, uses never-before-seen hybrid engines and boasts a raft of driver-assistance system, who are we to disagree? But it’s also the end of an era. Volkswagen now sees its future in the pure-electric ID3, meaning that although the new Golf will be the brand’s sales powerhouse for several years to come, as a concept it exists on borrowed time (not to sound overly dramatic). Still, we’d expect this one to once again compete for class honours against not only its usual rivals from Audi, Ford and Renault but now also BMW, whose new front-wheel-drive 1-Series has impressed. When the Mk8 Golf arrives in Spring 2020, will it still be the hatchback to have? We drove a pre-production model in Portugal to learn more.

What does it mean for car buyers?

The introduction of the Renault Megane E-Tech plug-in hybrid gives Renault a significant advantage in this sector of the market. Rivals such as the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Hyundai i30 aren’t currently available as plug-in models, so can’t offer buyers the Megane’s electric range of 31-40 miles.

With plug-in versions of both the Skoda Octavia and SEAT Leon arriving in showrooms later this year, the Megane E-Tech is a timely arrival, offering buyers an alternative to PHEV versions of the Volkswagen Group’s popular hatchbacks.
