VW Golf Mk8 to compete with 3 series and C-class

Some weird auto news


According to Autocar VW is moving the Golf range to premium and WV wants to attract C-Class and 3 series owners.

insiders say the Golf Mk8 will attempt to lure buyers who are downsizing from larger cars and premium models such as the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class

First of all the premium brand in VAG is Audi. So this should be the job of the Audi A4 to attract 3 series and C-Class buyers.
Second to attract people downsizing then again this should be the job of the Audi A3. It is true that today a Renault Talisman is almost the same size as a Chevy Impala. While 40 years ago a Euro sedan was half the size of a US sedan. So car size in Europe keeps increasing leading to customers downsizing their buy to fit the car in the garage.


Anyway lets wait and see. The Golf is the most sold car in Europe if the price of the next gen increases too much a lot of loyal customers will wonder how to replace their car.

Another awful looking Golf, vw losing the plot again, just relying on there image, i have been a VW nut in my earlier years and had magazine featured Golf GTis, prices are now hideous and we decided to buy a BMW 1 series 123d 204 bhp bi turbo and love it, much nicer to drive than the Golf in my view but not according to the motoring press where the Golf can do no Wrong

Can not say the new Golf or C Class gives me the urge to go out and buy one.

I wish Automakers would go ahead and built more pretty cars like this new Volvo 1800
