I am going to get something out of the way first. There is no way I would ever buy one of the new generations of any Volkswagen. They just aren't my thing. But...
As is per usual (at least in the world of the interwebs), new pictures have surfaced of the new VW Golf which will be bound for our shores sometime late in 2009.
The front of the car is definitely sporting some design elements of the new Scirocco, which is definitely a good thing. Go around to the rear, however, and prepare to be disappointed by a pair of taillights that look like they were nabbed off the back of a Touareg.
All in all, Volkswagen stays with its modern roots, and gives a simple, yet stylish, piece of kit. Photo gallery below:
