2025 VW Golf.
The current Golf is still a nice looking car and and really doesn’t need anything until the next generation is ready. The current model was introduced in 2019, and basically looked a lot like the previous one, but a bit better. Which is the usual deal with VW. At that time the regular Golf disappeared from the US and we only had the GTI and R versions available.
And it is a big flop in the US, with the GTI only selling a bit over 6200 units last year, which is really sad. I never drove the current model but the previous generation was great.
Besides the new front end, the revised 2025 model will adopt the big tablet screen from all other new VW models. Which, in my opinion, is s step back from the current set up, which is much more subtle. Forcing that huge screen into everything you make, from EVs to the new Passat and Tiguan, isn’t the best idea. It just looks ridiculous in the 2025 Golf.
I guess these unnecessary changes will keep the car fresh (in the mind of VW suits) until an all-new generation is ready in a few years. Which is scheduled to be an EV.
