Long-running Golf gets set for a major revamp
The Volkswagen Golf is to get a major update next month and the company appear to have been overcome by a new wave of nostalgia for the motoring icon.
It is hard to imagine how far back we have to go to find the first Golf (1974). Almost 7 million of that first generation were bought.
The year 1974 was auspicious for any number of reasons, whether it be ABBA winning the European Song Contest with 'Waterloo', Germany winning the World Cup, or Muhammad Ali defeating George Foreman in their famous fight.
However, looking forward, Volkwagen are not giving much away on what they are doing to the car for the global reveal.
