We have seen 7 generations of iconic Volkswagen Golf from 1974 to date. Next year 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.
The Golf 8 features Volkswagen’s most advanced connectivity and driver assistance systems.

Combined with all that comes the new e-TSI engine with mild hybrid technology. e-TSI uses a 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.
