The top grille is likely to be broader and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular style with sculpted air vents. Around the back, the wheel arches are anticipated to be wider and the full-LED brakelights slimmer. Sporty FR and Cupra models will feature bigger exhaust pipes and more aggressive bumpers.

It’s not likely that the 180hp 1.8-litre petrol will be offered in 2019 due to the fact that it hasn’t proven to be a popular choice to this day.
Rather, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version available from launch that’ll use the Golf GTE’s foundations, and in time there could be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to make it possible for the engine to switch off when you’re coasting.
