Restyled and refreshed, the new Volkswagen Golf Mk 8 is sleeker and more dynamic than ever before. With its impressive choice of engine options, state-of-the-art technology and minimalist design, it’s a car that delivers everything you need for a connected, contemporary drive.
The new Golf boasts a pared down exterior aesthetic, with a leaner front grille and slim LED headlights. The imposing bumper creates a more purposeful presence, while the lower ride height gives a sporty feel. With a sleek shoulder line and minimal sculpting too, the whole look is one of clean, crisp sophistication.
The minimalist feel of the exterior continues in the cabin, with a digital cockpit giving a sense of space and chic modernity. Relax into the adjustable driver’s seat and enjoy an intuitive experience, with touch-sensitive controls and a multi-function steering wheel making operation of the car’s functions simple. With the optional ambient lighting package, you can set the tone of every journey with one of 32 colours, while high quality materials enhance the premium feel throughout.
As you’d expect with a contemporary car, the new Volkswagen Golf is replete with features to enhance your drive. A range of driver assistance systems includes Adaptive Cruise Control and Park Assist, while the standard 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system enables you to control audio, air conditioning, navigation and more. Set up a Volkswagen ID to have the vehicle remember your preferences. Plus, with Car2X communication, you’ll get the most up to date traffic information as you travel.
With a whole host of engine options available, the new Golf lets you tailor your drive to your exact preferences. Both petrol and diesel units are on offer, as well as a 1.5-litre petrol mild hybrid and a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid. This latter option propels you from 0-62mph in just 7.4 seconds and delivers a zero-emissions range of up to 44 miles. Whichever powertrain you choose, you can expect a comfy, supple ride, precise handling, and keen grip – all of which make it a pleasure to drive.
When it comes to safety, the new Volkswagen Golf leaves no box unchecked. Standard kit such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-keeping Assistance and a Drive Fatigue Monitor all contribute to its five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, and with the Car2X system fitted, you’ll be notified of any hazards within an 800m range.
