Rendered Speculation: Next-gen VW sport hatch
Thanks for the tip, Kevin!

Submitted as part of the public Spring Festival in design, this is a concept for the GOL brand, not to be confused with GOLF. The design took seven hours, with hand rendering in Photoshop. The car known as the "Pol" is regarded as the young man's "sport car," so the design goal was expressing the spirit of the "pol" in a new model. Based on the old model, the car expresses its sportiness with a stance like an athlete who is crouching at the starting line, straining for a quick take-off. That feeling of excitement and energy was lacking in the old "pol, which has been refered to as a "campaign train" by young people in China. To better reflect the athletic spirit, the designer created the shape and design layout with GOL design features, with the promise of movement that lies in its ability to reflect more emotion. I just want it to be at the starting line with a squatting athlete's ready posture, a feeling that is not embodied in the former GOL! Hope that's close enough. Cool concept with almost a two-door Tiguan crossover look to it. Definitely less boring than some other current VeeDubs.
