Volkswagen Golf 8

Evolution on the outside, revolution on the inside. 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. Digitally remastered, the new Golf features a wide selection of pioneering Volkswagen technology giving you the most responsive, intuitive Golf ever.

The Innovision Cockpit takes all of your settings and displays them clearly on the Discover system’s 10-inch screen. From there you can easily adjust your driving position, air conditioning, radio, navigation and Driver Assistance systems. Set up your Volkswagen ID and once you log in the Golf 8 will remember your preferences.

The Golf 8 comes with LED headlights and integrated fog lights as standard. If you opt for the IQ.LIGHT Matrix LED lights you’ll also receive Dynamic Light Assist, which automatically adjusts brightness when it detects oncoming traffic.

The Golf 8 showcases Volkswagen’s quality interior design at its finest. As soon as you ease into the adjustable driver’s seat you’ll notice that thanks to the Innovision Cockpit, there are far fewer buttons to navigate on the dashboard. Choose the optional ambient lighting package and illuminate the interior from a selection of 32 colours.

The Golf 8 is Volkswagen’s first model to feature the 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.
