Launching and in our showroom from 1st April 2020
We have seen 7 generations of iconic Volkswagen Golf from 1974 to date. Now the most technologically advanced Golf comes to the UK, the Golf Mk8.
The Golf 8 showcases a refreshed exterior, with intricately designed headlights and a wider profile, alongside superior technology to give you a hatchback in a class of its own.
A wide selection of pioneering Volkswagen technology gives you the most responsive, intuitive Golf ever. With IQ.LIGHT Matrix LED lights, Innovision Cockpit, Heads Up Display and Voice Control. Unmistakably Golf but with innovative twists, the Golf 8 is a truly modern hatchback. Its exterior features clean design with narrow LED headlights and a leaner front grille. The imposing bumper gives the Golf 8 more presence and now sits lower to the ground, for a more responsive performance.
Unmistakably a Golf – the all new Golf 8 is the most progressive of all time. While the exterior design is an evolution over its predecessor, the interior is where the revolution begins.
The UK’s best-selling Volkswagen now comes with a plethora of new technologies as standard, including Car2X safety technology (a first for Volkswagen), ten-inch Active Info Display, ten-inch infotainment display and LED headlights. As well as ambient lighting as standard.
The Golf 8 features Volkswagen’s most advanced connectivity and driver assistance systems. See whats down the road with Car2X, which communicates wirelessly with other Car2X enabled vehicles on the road to provide you with the most up to date traffic information. The Golf 8 comes with a list of driver assistance systems such as adaptive cruise and travel assist making the Golf almost autonomous. Combined with all that comes the new e-TSI engine with mild hybrid technology. e-TSI uses a 48v lithium-ion battery to help power the engine at low speeds and drastically reduce both fuel consumption and emissions. The battery is recharged using energy from braking and coasting creating sustainable power.
Golf 8 also offers the following as optional equipment: head-up display projection onto the windscreen, Matrix IQ. lights and a new premium speaker provider - Harman/Kardon.
The new Golf receives eight drivetrains, including petrol (TSI), diesel (TDI), mild hybrid (eTSI) and plug-in hybrid drive (eHybrid) engines. All engines have a reduced consumption values and emissions outputs, with power outputs ranging from 90PS to 200PS.
