The Golf is the vehicle that has shaped its own class for generations. And now the Golf is setting a new milestone for the next generation with little additions to the iconic design, intuitive technology and evolutionary safety features. The benchmark just keeps getting better.
The Golf offers the perfect blend of comfort, performance and innovation to create a driving experience that appeals to everyone.
The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is standard across the Golf hatch range. It lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and car in front. In doing so, it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, while reducing the risk of exceeding the speed limit.
Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes are always handy. The Rear View Camera installed at the back of the car, displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you. Coupled with parking sensors, reversing is now safer and easier.
Searching for your keys are now a thing of the past. You can start the engine of your Golf at the press of the starter button, while leaving your keys in your bag. Proximity sensors detect your key within 1.5 metres of the car, meaning it can automatically unlock as you pull the door handle. Keyless entry and start (KESSY). The feature is standard across the Golf Hatch range.
One of the new additions is the eye-catching Active Info Display available as standard on the Golf Highline and R-Line.
Taking place of traditional instrumentation behind the steering wheel. This high-definition digital display uses a 12.3” screen with configurable views. Choose your view from navigation, infotainment, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.
Now standard across the Golf range is the 8 inch touchscreen colour display. This glass-covered display is high resolution and intuitively connects you to the infotainment system.
Also in the infotainment system is the Discover Media satellite navigation, meaning you will never be lost again.
Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen.
You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.
Stay relaxed in busy streets.
The intelligent driver assistance systems in your Golf ensure more driving comfort and can help you deal with critical situations very well or even avoid them*. Even if you only notice this technology on rare occasions, it feels good to know that it is there.
*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.
The available Forward Collision Warning system (included in Front Assist) has sensors in the front to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a potential collision. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can help brake the car.
Side Assist provides assistance if you want to change lanes from speeds of 10 km\h upwards. Sensors in the rear of the vehicle monitor the traffic and should they detect any road users in your blind spot or vehicles approaching quickly from behind, the system will alert you via a warning light within the door mirror housing.
The available Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and even brake for you if needed.
When moving, the available Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. On most models, Lane Assist will help steer to help keep you in the correct lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. If the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors detect the change and your car follows suit.
The available Park Distance Control (Park Pilot) has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close, an alert sounds as a warning.
Take a look at all the highlights of the new Golf. As we said, the benchmark just keeps getting better.
A Golf at first glance, and boasting a striking, confident appearance like every generation of the Golf – from the newly designed headlights and bumpers and the dynamic radiator grille to the rear diffuser and expressive LED tail light cluster.
The interior of the new Golf invites you to sit down immediately and not get up again until you absolutely have to. This is thanks mainly to the generous proportions, which offer both front and rear occupants plenty of leg room. The vehicle interior is also distinguished by universally high-quality materials and a wide range of intelligent detailed solutions.

The standard halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights offer a clear view, even in difficult lighting conditions. Thanks to their headlight range control, which is also included as standard, the headlight range is adapted to suit various load levels.
To complete the iconic Golf look, there are a selection of stylish alloys available. Starting from 17 inch Dijon alloys on the Comfortline, 18 inch Durban alloys on the Highline and the R-Line with 18 inch Sebring alloys.
Athletic, feisty, distinctive. For four decades the Golf GTI has been an icon; the car that other cars have aspired to be.
