2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI (MkVI) – Click above for high-res image gallery
The MkVI (sixth-generation) Volkswagen Golf has been around since 2009, and according to a report from Reuters, the next all-new Golf may be approaching sooner than we thought. According to a spokesperson for Volkswagen, the automaker will have the MkVII Golf ready for public consumption by either the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013.
Golf generational changes typically occur in much larger intervals, but this rapid introduction for the MkVII is a result of the Volkswagen Group's new cost-savings model architecture called MQB. Different makes and models that share the same underpinnings will be built in a similar manner to save large percentages of money.
