The Countdown Continues: Golf Mk7

In just two days (Thursday, November 10 at 6:30 am EST) Volkswagen will unveil their newly updated Golf, and now they’ve finally finished their Golf countdown of the nameplate with the current generation Mk7.

First introduced in 2012, the Mk7 has quite a few honors to its name. It’s the first electric Golf, the first VW on the MQB platform, and it’s currently the fastest front-wheel-drive production car ever to go around the Nurburgring.

Volkswagen set the Nurburgring lap record earlier this year with the Golf GTI Clubsport S to celebrate the GTI’s 40th anniversary.

A handsome, quick, capable car, the Mk7 Golf is more than fit to wear the badge.

As Head of Volkswagen Design puts it, “I don’t think there’s anyone who needs more car than a Golf.”
