The six generation Golf you see on the road right now might look different to the Mk V, but it’s actually a heavily reengineered version of the old car, meant to streamline production, cut a few costs and reduce build times for Volkswagen’s biggest volume car.
But now a new generations is coming, judging by the numerous sightings. It will reportedly share its new "Modularer Querbaukasten" or MQB with the Audi A3, which will bow at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. This will make it just a bit longer and wider than the current model.

According to German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport, we don’t have long to wait before we see the Mk. VII, because it will bow at the upcoming Paris International Motor Show, which is little more than half a year away. Paris will also see the new Skoda Octavia and the Opel Junior city car.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
