New VW Golf MK VII spied (Pictures)

Torque Auto has got it hands on some pictures of the new lighter and safer VW Golf Mk VII in testing, before its unveil at the Paris Motor Show in October.

Constucted using a thinner and lighter (45kg less than the MkVI), but stronger steel, the new Golf Mk VII aims to be safer than any of its predecessors and competitors,

The reduced weight will help to improve emissions and economy, as will a host of new three and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines - the highlight of which will be a 1.4 TFSI with cylinder deactivation technology.

The medium-sized family car will continue to be sold as a three and five-door hatch – with an estate and convertible penned in for the future. The MkVII will also gain equipment normally reserved for more upmarket models - including adaptive cruise control and a number of electronic safety aids. When it goes on sale in early 2013, expect to pay slightly more than the current car, which starts at £15,
 
With more aggresive, sleeker looks and an evolutionary design promised, we can't wait for the new VW Gold to be unveiled in October.
