More Golf, more style: New seat covers in fabric or ArtVelours and the high-gloss centre console lend the interior of the new Golf a more luxurious appearance1. With the optional 32.7 cm (12.9 inch) infotainment display, you will also experience entertainment, news and navigation on a new level. Meanwhile, the standard multifunction steering wheel with classic push buttons adds to the comfort of your journey.
With optional illuminated front Volkswagen logo and stylish bumpers, the Golf knows how to impress visually. The new headlights and tail light clusters with optional dynamic turn signals make it a real eye-catcher.
Regardless of where and when you are driving, we want you to have a clear view. The optional IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights with their high-performance main beam ensure better night vision and can light up the road up to a distance of 550 metres at night. The matrix technology enables you to permanently drive with main beam without dazzling other road users. In addition, the energy-saving headlights are extremely efficient.
In the e-TSI with mild hybrid technology, a starter generator supports the engine when you drive off and at low speeds. Braking and rolling are used to charge the lithium-ion battery. This helps to greatly reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
The Golf Style is also available as a plug-in hybrid. This is a plug-in hybrid with an electric motor and TSI petrol engine. When the battery is charged, the Golf eHybrid starts in electric-only mode, producing zero local carbon emissions. It can travel for up to 107 kilometres (combined) – measured using the WLTP method – using just the electric motor. Depending on the speed, driving mode and other parameters, the TSI engine switches on automatically.
The new optional IDA online voice assistant allows you to conveniently operate the radio, telephone, your music, the optional three-zone air conditioning system and navigation unit with your voice. For example, you can select the radio station or choose the address book entry or telephone number you’re looking for with your voice.
The voice assistant can be started with “Hello IDA”. It also understands free formulations from everyday life such as “I’m cold.” or “Where are there Japanese restaurants in London?”. In addition, thanks to digital microphones, it now also recognises whether the driver or the passenger is speaking, in order, for example, to provide the air conditioning in the vehicle specifically for the person making the request.
The new IDA voice assistant will also appear visually to you in the future on the centre display, with interactions enabled via graphics. The optimised system also asks questions or lets itself be interrupted.
IDA likewise allows you to access world knowledge made available via Internet partners (e.g. Wikipedia).
