Those pictures above still look like digital renders to me.

I'd agree because in the other (real) photos you see a wider C pillar and a fatter backside - which is all about the new extra boot
space.

As for it looking like *insert name of other family hatchback* somewhere on here I posted a side on shot of 5 (?) different current models and they are hardly distinguishable between each other at all.

The way of the world it seems.

Trust me guys it’s not as ugly as those images  :wink:
So you're saying it's ugly, just not as ugly as the pictures... ;)

Anyone else like me thinking the Mk8 will be to the MK7 what the MK6 was to the MK5... bloated and no different apart from a re-arranged dash and some twiddly bits? As somebody pointed out earlier in this thread VW haven't managed to ever do 2x successful consecutive generations of GTI.  :huh:

On the plus side we all get to save a shed load of cash and just keep the mk 7/7.5’s we’re all happy with, without casting an envious glance at the mk 8!  :wink:

Our other car is the new XC60. No buttons all modern touch screen.

I must be getting old as I prefer buttons.

Aside from the removal of exhaust fumes at source this is what been saying all along in that how green is electric overall end to end and answer it seems from this source, it’s not!

The back end looks good but I still think the front end looks odd

That image looks to me like it still has some light camo around the rear lights. Either that or there are some very odd reflections going on.  :undecided:

It might be the angle of the shot but the side windows look very MPV like in being slab sided.
Most previous generations of Golf have the windows gently carrying on a taper narrowing in width gradually toward the roof from above the belt line giving a squat and muscular stance.

Hopefully the photo is just a bad angle.

This is the only other angle that shows the windows if it’s of any use. Not my photos as said earlier but worth sharing.
