VW Golf Version 9 - A new generation on the horizon

by Andrew Haighton 06 Jul 2023

There’s good reason why the VW Golf is the UK's 4th most popular car, with more than 1 million versions on our roads (DVLA, 2023). Since its introduction to the market in the ‘70s, the Golf has earned its place as a symbol of reliability and versatility, and has cemented its position as a hallmark of quality German engineering.

A firm fan favourite

Resultingly, the world-famous Golf is decorated with a host of global awards and acknowledgements, including being recognized as top of the pile at the World Car of the Year Awards 2009. The Golf motor has been consistently successful across the existing eight generations and has now officially risen to the top of VW’s Best Sellers charts, having sold over thirty-five million units! 

The VW Golf is recognized as the world’s 4th best-selling car ever! The current number 1 is the Toyota Corolla with over fifty-five million units sold, latest iteration launched in 2023.

In hot pursuit of the Number 1 spot, VW has announced its plans for the Golf, and fans will be delighted by the news that VW have no plans to lay the iconic model to rest.

New Beginnings for VW's Golf 

The MK8 (2020) stands as the most-recent version of the Golf, although VW have now announced that they plan a mid-cycle refresh in 2024, which will likely sell through to 2030.

However, this will be the last ever gasoline-powered version of Golf to hit the European market! In line with VW’s plans to sell only electric cars in Europe by 2033, the arrival of the electric battery only Version 9 in 2030 will mean a cease to production of the internal combustion model of Golf for good.
