That looks fun

An evolutionary styling of a design classic, the new Golf looks exciting, because it is.

Visibly dynamic, undeniably Golf

The new Golf knows how to make a first impression. From the sharp character line along the side profile, to the sporty, low air intake front grille, every element is considered, as you’d expect with a Golf.

Unparalleled performance

The torque of the town

Taking things up a gear

In the new Golf, more is less. With a 6-speed manual transmission and 8-speed automatic transmission, the high number of gears allows for optimum engine speed distribution and reduced fuel consumption.

Arrive safe and in style with IQ.DRIVE

With IQ. DRIVE, the new Golf features a comprehensive suite of driver assistance systems at your back.2


An assistant you can count on

The new Golf puts your safety in the spotlight. Using a multi-function camera and radar, your semi-autonomous assistant can ensure you stay within lane markings, monitor potential collisions and even adapt your speed to traffic situations.2

Smooth moves

Impress friends, family and the occasional pedestrian as you glide into tricky parallel and right-angle spots with ease. Using the rear-view camera and semi-automated Park Assist’s sensors, the new Golf can do the manoeuvring for you while you focus on the pedals.2

Protective by nature 

Keeping people safe is all a part of the Golf’s nature. With the ability to detect hazards, the new safety systems can support you in critical situations, activate protective mechanisms to tighten seatbelts and roll the windows up, or even bring the vehicle to a stop.2

Technology that gets you

It's not magic, but it's close. The new Golf is an icon re-energised, with an expanded range of innovative technology and seamless connectivity that makes every driving experience feel effortless. 

Touch controls, escaping your everyday has never been easier.

The revolutionary digitalisation of the Golf pairs the Digital Cockpit Pro and the 10” Discover Pro Navigation System into the all-new Innovision Cockpit. Offering an exceptional range of functions behind simple touch controls, your playlists, DAB+ digital radio, directions and controls are all just a tap away.

Available on Life or R-Line only
