At heart, the Mk8 and Mk7 are the same, both riding on Volkswagen’s clever MQB platform. More evolutionary than revolutionary, the re-design of the Mk8 means it looks a bit sharper, with a revamped front end and updated styling. However, when it comes to technology, the Mk8 Golf is an enormous leap forward. Price-wise, the Mk8 Golf is a more premium option, but also a far more multi-talented one. Whether you fancy a supremely refined drive in regular guise, require a high-quality, ergonomic cabin, or value innovative tech and drivers assist, there’s plenty of choice in both packages—Golf to Golf, you can’t go wrong either way.
