The Golf is the staple of VW and its design appeals to many people at all levels. Revolutionary would potentially scare off many current owners. Its heritage is visible not invisible.

Certainly not all will like it vs the Mk6 etc. Mark my words after a good test you will be tempted more than turned off by the Mk7 GTi. I hope to drive the R in the spring.
