Currently reading: VW Golf Mk7 'revealed'
Promo video error appears to show next Golf

The next Volkswagen Golf has apparently been revealed by accident during a company promo video.

Halfway into a film for the Frankfurt show L1 concept car, what appears to be a full-size mock-up of a future Golf can be seen in the background.

The car has narrower headlights and a more sculpted snout, similar to the Scirocco, and has pronounced wheel arches, possibly suggesting a wider track.

If the pics are to be believed, the car will be an evolutionary step forward instead of a giant leap, building on the latest model.

According to reports, the scene didn’t last long in the video, quickly being erased from the official video.

Sounds nice, but why silver? Go for dark metalic blue. It will show off the chrome details and big wheels nicely

King of Bling Polo. Maybe not

When the Polo has the right kit, alloys and high spec equipment it will be one slick car, the Polo GTI already looks set to be a very good car. VW are the masters of cars like polo, Golf.

Go for the understated look tannedbaldhead, silver is always a good choice

Agree wholeheartedly. And a nice size for city driving too. That's why the new Polo is floating my boat at the moment rather than any Golf. In particular a 1.2 TSI SEL, 3dr, Silver, Sports suspension and 17" wheels (only don't tell Moe, would ruin my old fart image) DSG, alacantra sports seats and as I add, ad nausium, the bald head tanning sunroof. Maybe this yoof Moe has a point about specced to the high heavens Dubs. I see the appeal.
