Hyundai’s can be the most amazing car in the world, ever. But I still wouldn’t buy one if the interior is made from recycled yoghurt pots. That’s something VAG has over most other brands too.

That’s part of the reason I can see more Ford ST buyers heading to the i30N than VW types.

Yes. They don’t know what they’re missing if they’ve never had it.

Tbh the i40n was far better inside than I expected. I seriously thought about moving from the S3 to one of it hadn’t been for the ride quality which I believe is better in the updated model.

But, I sat in one then went to Vw literally 2 mins away and that’s when you see the difference.

Undisguised pictures of the ‘buttonless’ mk8 Golf instrumentation and infotainment screens (plus mk8 exterior shots that I think have been seen before by most);

Looks like dashboard and centre console buttons and rotary dials/knobs for most functions have been consigned to history.

Not sure about the middle dash screen design, it looks like its bolted on like an addon to the dash rather than being a part of the dash.  Much prefer the smooth lines of the MK7 centre dash where the screen is sunken in to the dash.  We will have to see what the final production version of the Golf MK8 looks like when it reaches the motorshows?

I'm not sure the photos of the real life thing show it in its final config, but its not far off the computer image - which is a real VW one, I've seen that before.

Probably could get a better idea by looking up the VW range if any of them already have this style of angled centre display... I think one or more do.

The angled display is the new thing and it kinda has to be because of the new functions which are controlled via it need to be driver centric. A flat panel like the Mk7 isn't what you need.

BTW I assume that as well as a Mk8 golf there will be a new A3, Octavia and SEAT? Any photos of them yet?

I'd expect nothing different tbh.

Why have the positioned the headlights so low?! Really looks like they have massively cocked up the overall shape of the car from the front/side view and can't really see how the performance models will alter that...  :rolleyes:
