The iconic Volkswagen Golf looks as fresh today as the day it was launched in 1974. The new Golf offers great performance, a quality build and innovative technology as well as smart styling both inside and out. Combine all this with high residual values, and it is clear why the Golf continues to be so popular today – and is still one of the best-selling cars in the UK.
The smart and sporty styling of the Volkswagen Golf is so cool that it looks at home anywhere. LED lights are fitted at the rear and as the daytime running lights incorporated in the headlamps, while door mirrors have integral indicator lights. All models in the Golf range are fitted to a high specification, with the high quality of build and finishes which you would expect from Volkswagen. The SE trim and up have alloy wheels, starting from 16 inches and upgrading to 17-inch alloys on the GT edition, and 18-inch on the Golf R.
The cabin is designed for your convenience and comfort, with everything you need within easy reach. In addition to the standard equipment in the S trim, such as the multifunction computer, the SE gets you parking sensors at the front and back, and electrically adjustable door mirrors. The Golf GT adds automatic headlights and interior ambient lighting. Premium quality materials are used throughout the range, with added luxury in the form of a leather steering wheel and special styling packs on the higher models, including the GTI and GTE.
Your choices of engine in the Volkswagen Golf include a 1.0-litre TSI, 1.4-litre and 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine, and 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre TDI diesel BlueMotion. The Golf R is the model to choose if you are looking for the fastest performance, as its 2.0-litre TSI 306bhp will take you from 0-60mph in just 4.6 seconds. If you want to do your bit for the environment, the new GTE hybrid gives you the best of both worlds, with a conventional engine for longer journeys and electric power for those shorter regular trips.
An eight-inch colour touchscreen is fitted even on the S trim, together with Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and a multi-device interface for connection to your compatible smartphone or tablet. Several models feature the Discover Navigation system to make your journeys easier to manage, wherever you are driving.
Safety features are plentiful in the Golf, with ABS, ESC, airbags and ISOFIX seat fixtures in the rear. Other safety technology available includes a brake pad wear indicator, and automatic post-collision braking system.
