The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 is Now Available in US and Canada

The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 Launch Video  

The MK8 GTI sticks to the tried-and-true combination of front-wheel drive and a 2.0T 4-cylinder engine, but with a new Garrett turbocharger. The Mk8 is built on the same MQB platform as the Mk7; therefore, there are no substantial differences in size or fundamental components. Instead, most aspects of the suspension and powertrains have been fine-tuned. The all-new scanning equipment creates a 3D image — in this case, of the GTI Mk8’s engine bay.
