The new Volkswagen Golf is open for order


The all-new, all-connected Golf 8 is now open for customer ordering at Vindis Volkswagen retailers.

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.

A wide selection of pioneering Volkswagen technology gives 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’s Head-Up display projects your speedometer and Adapted Cruise Control information straight onto the windshield. Sat-Nav and media settings are displayed on the Digital Cockpit, a high-definition screen that sits right behind the steering wheel.

Through the Golf 8’s voice control you can select between radio stations, scroll through your address book, or change course on your Sat-Nav. You can even use voice commands to adjust the setting of the optional Adaptive Cruise Control.

The Golf 8 has 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. The imposing bumper gives the Golf 8 more presence and now sits lower to the ground, for a more responsive performance.

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.

There will initially be two specifications available:

  • Golf 8 Life 1.5 TSI 130PS 6-speed Manual 5 Door
  • Golf 8 Style 1.5 TSI 130PS 6-speed Manual 5 Door

The next wave of new Golf derivatives will open for ordering in March including Volkswagen’s first mild hybrid, the eTSI, which will come with 150PS and a DSG gearbox, giving customers greater efficiency compared to a traditional DSG.
