Volkswagen Golf


Is it that time again?

It doesn't seem that long ago that a new Golf was released. Oh, right, looking at the numbering, we're up to Golf Mark 7, and barely anything has changed since the Mark 4.

That's probably unfair, because it evidently has.

Technology is moving on apace, new computer systems mean that cars are getting more and more technologically advanced all the time.

But the Golf still looks like, well, it was designed in 2003.

Nothing special, it is going to look more and more dated as the model cycle progresses. But maybe that's the point - maybe the whole point of the Golf is to give the Baby Boomer market a sense of familiarity. After all, when was the last time you saw someone driving one where their hair colour was not grey?

A dated car, ready for retirement soon. Just like the potential owners.
