The UK's "New Golf"

Volkswagen's UK new Golf looks great, and it got me very excited about the new Mk7 platform vehicles. Unfortunately, VW hasn't brought its more aggressive styling to this year's US cars. Here's the 2013 GTI and below it the UK's new Golf.

The 2013 GTI

The UK New Golf

The Golf looks more like a GTI than the GTI does. Its sharp lines, light-guided LED running lights, and below-the-handles door crease give it a sportier look that the US' 2013 GTI should have stolen. At some point my 2001 Golf is going to give up its ghost, and when that happens I hope the US VWs have inherited the UK's look.
