2020 Volkswagen Golf is all about evolution

Still largely the same old lovable hatch, but modernized to the core.

It's still unclear if it's coming to North America, but we'll get the GTI and R models.

The evolutionary exterior looks are only part of the package because the eighth-generation Golf hosts numerous steps forward in the interior and powertrain departments.

A familiar shape with a sleeker front fascia and a wider lower grille area greets the world.

Out back, the taillights mimic an overall more chiseled look and a sharp crease runs through the hatch to connect the two elements.

A total of five hybrid versions will be offered, with two being plug-in hybrids.

Otherwise, an inline three-cylinder engine or a diesel engine powers the hatch.

The hybrid models are greener, though, and the plug-in eHybrid model makes a pretty respectable 201 horsepower.

It'd be a shame if we didn't get the standard hatch here because it has a lot going for it.
