We already knew that the Golf Mk7 will enter production this month and that the compact will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show, an event that will be held between September 29 and October 13, with the vehicle’s sales in Europe scheduled to debut in November.

Despite the fact that the Golf VII will follow the model’s traditional styling recipe, which means that it will be an evolution of the current generation, as the spyshots suggest, it will ride on the VW Group’s all-new MQB platform.

The Golf 7’s engine range will include downsized, turbocharged petrol and diesel units, with the novelties including a 1.4-liter TSI petrol that will use Volkswagen’s ACT (active cylinder management) that will allow the engine to use just cylinders 1 and 4 when power is not needed in order to boost fuel efficiency. The seventh Generation of the Golf will also see VW introduce a hybrid, as well as an all-electric model.
