- First Generation (Mk1; 1974–1983): Introduced as a replacement for the Volkswagen Beetle, it was a front-wheel-drive, water-cooled design in a hatchback body style. It was a hit, offering a significant departure from the aging Beetle.

- Third Generation (Mk3; 1992–1997): Introduced new design elements and more rounded body styling, as well as the introduction of a 6-cylinder engine, the VR6.

- Seventh Generation (Mk7; 2012–2019): Built on the VW Group’s MQB platform, allowing for a lighter, more efficient, and more spacious car. This generation saw a leap in digital integration and driver assistance features.

The Golf’s design has always focused on functionality with a clean, timeless style. From the first to the eighth generation, the Golf has maintained a recognizable shape, with the most recent generation featuring a more aggressive front and streamlined body. The interior has evolved with the times, now boasting a minimalistic dashboard with digital touchpoints replacing many physical controls.
Over its many generations, the Golf has been available with a wide range of engines, from gasoline to diesel, and more recently, electric and hybrid models. The Mk8, for example, offers a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, along with mild-hybrid powertrains, and a plug-in hybrid GTE version. Transmission options have included manual, automatic, and dual-clutch (DSG) gearboxes.
