Volkswagen is readying a new eighth-generation Golf for an official debut later this year، but a barely disguised prototype has revealed the car's design early، as Auto Car said.

The new Ford Focus rival was photographed by Volkswagen fan and Instagram user johannes.vag passing through a McDonald's drive-thru in Germany with virtually no protective camouflage.


The car in these shots tallies with last year's official preview sketch and Autocar's previous renderings، with a typically evolutionary design approach for the firm's range mainstay and detailing adapted from the smaller Polo. A new grille and light design - previewed by the latest Touareg SUV - was hinted at in the sketch، but that family resemblance isn't as evident in this prototype - likely because some trim pieces are still covered.

The Mk8 Golf، which will go into production in the autumn، will have levels of fuel-saving technology، connectivity، autonomous driving capability and refinement that are intended to render the mainstream competition second best.
