The new Golf introduces Gesture Control; a truly interactive feature that allows you to navigate through various menus including radio stations and more through a simple mid-air swipe of the hand. Available on the Discover Pro 9.2” display as part of the optional Infotainment package on Comfortline and Highline variants only.
Goodbye analogue, hello digital with the Active Info Display2. This feature replaces the traditional instruments that sit behind the steering wheel with a 12.3” high-definition digital screen and puts everything you need, right in front of you with configurable views for navigation, infotainment, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.
Innovation goes beyond driver features in the new Golf. Passengers are given more control, with less distraction for the driver with the new Media Control feature. By downloading the free Media Control App, compatible with Android & iOS, you can turn a smartphone or tablet into a remote control for the Volkswagen Infotainment system enabling users to control selected functions such as navigation, radio station selection and media data.
Using sensors on either side of the front and rear bumpers, together with parking distance sensors front and rear, Park Assist actively helps you 90 degree park, back into a park and get in and out of a parallel park.
Using a camera to monitor the markings on the road ahead, Lane Assist helps keep you safe by working to prevent you leaving your lane unintentionally. If you start to leave your lane without indicating the system takes corrective steering action. If you still don’t respond a message will appear in the Multi-Function Display in conjunction with a warning tone.
Using sensors, this genius feature informs you with illuminated symbols on each of your side mirrors when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.
While reversing, radar sensors scan the area on both sides and behind the vehicle. If it detects objects or another vehicle moving towards the vehicle, it alerts the driver with an audible and visual signal. And if the driver is slow to respond it’ll even hit the brakes to prevent a collision4.
4.Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.
When the sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are turned on and stay on. The driver can take over at any time.
Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when the vehicle in front is too close. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it partially applies the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake will prepare the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.
Experience a new era of power. The 110kW TSI engine develops 250Nm of torque, providing compelling performance, with BlueMotion Technologies that work together for greater fuel efficiency. Alternatively the 110kW TDI diesel engine develops 340Nm of torque and is exclusively available in the luxuriously equipped Highline grade.
40 years in the making, the new Golf is the evolution of an icon. Boasting a striking new level of design, the unmistakeable Golf remains a head-turner that extends beyond class boundaries.
The new Golf rolls in style with 16” alloy wheels as standard and the option of 17" alloys for higher grades or make a statement with 18” Sebring alloys with the optional R-Line package.
LED Daytime Driving Lights and LED tail lights increase your Golf’s visibility at any time of the day. Bright enough to be noticed without dazzling oncoming drivers, the Golf is made to be seen.
