Countdown to Golf update in November: The first Golf – birth of an icon

Volkswagen Golf
  • The history of the Golf began in 1974 with a revolution
  • Golf Mk1 sold 6.99 million cars, becoming an instant bestseller

Volkswagen is preparing a major update for the Golf. World premiere coming up in November. It will be the update of a style-icon. Head of Design at Volkswagen Klaus Bischoff says, "there are only a few cars in the world other than the Golf which have so consistently continued to develop their design from generation to generation," Bischoff goes on to explain, "vehicles which successfully manage an evolution of their design over decades have the potential to one day be celebrated as an icon. The most prominent example of such a development is the Porsche 911; in the high volume models segment, however, the Golf is clearly a member of the automobile Hall of Fame."
