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:
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.
If you want to be one of the first customers to take delivery of the all-new Volkswagen Golf 8 then please contact one of our Vindis Volkswagen retailers:
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, we have opened selected workshops to conduct this work, and all other dealerships are completely closed:
Huntingdon Volkswagen remains open and will conduct service work for Peterborough Audi, Huntingdon Audi and Huntingdon Van Centre Vindis Cambridge Service Centre remains open and will also conduct service work for Cambridge Volkswagen, SKODA Cambridge, SKODA Bury St. Edmunds, Fakenham Volkswagen and Cambridge Audi Bedford Audi remains open and will also conduct work for Bedford Volkswagen and Milton Keynes SEAT Northampton Van Centre remains open and will conduct work also for Northampton Audi and Milton Keynes SEAT
In order to protect both you and our staff, upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
