Volkswagen has just announced that from November there will be a new Golf on the market. The current generation (the Golf VII) be subjected to a facelift that would respond to two or three years remaining until completely renewed, so the 2017 model will not be completely new.

This is expected to know the Volkswagen Golf VIII in 2018 and until it arrives, we still have a good generation market.

This time philosophy is maintained and see an aesthetic upgrade that costs differ Golf VII If you're not a connoisseur model. Retouches the two bumpers with minimal adjustments, adapting to new designs front and rear lenses, in which LED technology becomes more prominence. The grill also adapts to the new change, with different designs depending on the mechanical version.
