Here are the first photos of the Volkswagen Golf 7. After months of spy photos, computer renderings, horrible photoshops and more, the official photos have been released.

The all-new VW Golf Mark 7 for 2013 was unveiled at an event in Berlin on Tuesday night.

It is now 36 years since Volkswagen launched the first Golf, since when it has sold 29 million models, including famous variants like the Golf GTi.

It is hard for us to believe that another generation of Golf has gone by.

Rear legroom is longer by 15 mm, and the front seats have been moved 20 mm further back. The boot is 30 litres larger, at 380 litres, with a low 685 mm sill to make loading effortless.

The front passenger seat can also – optionally – fold fully forward, creating a loadspace up to 2.4m long.

The new Golf features new petrol and diesel engines, all of which incorporate Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

At launch, the petrol engines are a 1.2-litre TSI 85 PS unit returning 57.6 mpg on the combined cycle and 113 g/km, and a 1.4-litre TSI 140 PS unit with Active Cylinder Technology, which can deactivate two of the cylinders, and achieves up to 58.9 mpg and 112 g/km.

The launch diesel engines are a 1.6-litre unit with 105 PS, which promises 74.3 mpg and 99 g/km, and a 2.0-litre 150 PS unit which returns 68.9 mpg and 106 g/km.

The new range, expected to go on UK sale in October, looks more evolutionary than revolutionary, with Volkswagen’s chief designer, Walter de Silva keeping much of the car’s classic styling cues.

The new car is 4.255m, 56 mm longer than the old car, with a 59 mm longer wheelbase of 2,637 mm.

The front wheels are 43 mm further forward, helping to generate more interior space, while the Golf is also 13 mm wider, at 1,799 mm, and 28 mm lower, at 1,452 mm. This helps to create a 10 per cent improvement in the drag co-efficient, which is now 0.27 Cd.

To be honest, apart from the larger dimensions, you’d be hard pressed to notice much difference over the Mk. VI.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R



5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
