Volkswagen Golf soon to be updated; countdown continues with Part 4

As you know, the countdown to the world premiere of the significantly updated Volkswagen Golf has officially begun.

In case you missed our look back at the second-generation Golf (MkII) and third-generation Golf (MkIII), as well as the overview of the Golf’s safety evolution, you should definitely check them out now.

Today, we focus on the fourth generation, introduced in 1997 and still considered a styling icon particularly because of its graphic clarity. With this car, Volkswagen achieved a totally new standard of quality, and the debut of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) in 1998 ensured the Golf would continue to democratise safety.

Enjoy the following video and come back in the next few days for more information about the next Volkswagen Golf.
