2017 Volkswagen Golf R MK7 Facelift Revealed

2017 Volkswagen Golf R MK7 Facelift Revealed

The facelifted 2017 Volkswagen Golf has been unveiled, revealing its subtle styling changes, upgraded interior appointments and a newly developed 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine ahead of its arrival in three and five-door hatchback and estate bodystyles next April.

The predictably subtle mid-life changes brought to the Golf are designed to improve the overall competitiveness of the seventh-generation model against a raft of rivals until the arrival of more heavily altered eighth-generation Golf in 2019.

Pricing is yet to be announced, although Volkswagen officials have suggested that the new entry-level Golf will likely rise in price from today’s £17,625 due its higher equipment levels.

Design

Visually, the 2017 Golf departs little from today’s four-year-old model, with only minor changes to its exterior.

Up front, there’s a lightly reprofiled bumper with altered grille and air duct styling, lightly restyled wings and revised headlights with altered graphics, LED daytime running lights and a new full LED main beam function in place of the earlier Xenon operated units. The rear receives full LED tail-lights and a newly designed bumper featuring integral tailpipes on the popular R-line styling package.

Further changes to the appearance of Europe’s best-selling car include a new range of wheel designs and exterior colours.
