It was just a few hours ago when we shared the main rendering of the new VW Golf as seen on ID.3’s infotainment system, and now we have something much better. Captured with most of the camouflage gone, the GTE version was seen showing off the company’s upgraded business logo that debuted on the ID.3 earlier today. The near-production model is likewise showing the extra cap for the charging port, now resting on the front fender instead of underneath the VW badge in the front grille.
You may be tempted to state the car has no camouflage whatsoever. However, there are still some stickers on the headlights and taillights in the same vein as the ones Porsche slapped onto the Taycan before exposing the stylish EV. The front bumper has a similar type of camo around the fog light area, while the rear one contains body-colored tape on the set of phony exhaust ideas.
2021 VW Golf GTE Interior
VW didn’t even trouble to conceal the car’s interior, which is certainly an indication the Golf’s premiere is best around the corner. Certainly, the car’s launching has currently been confirmed to take place at some point in October, and maybe the electrified GTE will be exposed immediately, seeing as how this model has extremely little camo.
A few of the badging is missing from this prototype, like the VW logo designs on the wheels and the center-mounted “Golf” lettering on the tailgate. There’s also no indication of the blue “GTE” badges on the front fenders. However, in general, this is most likely 99% the car you’re going to find at a European VW dealer near you. The side parking sensors recommend we’re dealing with a high-end version equipped with the Park Assist system, while the headlights seem of the full-LED variety.
2021 VW Golf GTE Spy Shots
Thanks to a previous spy picture and the main VW teaser, we also have a respectable understanding of what to anticipate from the Golf’s interior. Vastly different than its predecessor, the Mk 8 will eliminate the majority of physical buttons and knobs to integrate lots of functions into the new infotainment system. Below the screen on the center console will be a touch slider, presumably to manage the temperature level settings.
2021 VW Golf GTE Platform
A small bump in size supported with an upgraded MQB platform might maximize more area inside the cabin and in the cargo area. Even so, it will not be the most practical compact car from the VW Group as that role was attributed to the modern Skoda Octavia since its beginning back in 1996. The Golf’s Czech cousin is likewise right around the corner, with Skoda revealing the debut will occur before the year’s end.
