It’s the moment that Volkswagen fans have been waiting for, and we’re pleased to announce the arrival of the brand new, eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf.
Unveiled at the official world premiere, the Golf features a redesigned exterior, showing off a wider profile and new LED headlights. Inside there’s a wealth of new technology, that extends to the engines too, to make driving the new Golf an exciting prospect.
There’s a big focus on all things digital in the new Golf, with most of the displays and controls now digitised, meaning they are sleek and easy to use throughout the cabin. Touch sliders and buttons make them easy to use whilst driving, and there’s an optional head-up display should you wish to see driving information visible in your eyeline. The model also sits lower to the ground for a heightened driving experience and responsive performance. It also arrives as the first Volkswagen to feature Car2X as standard, which increases communication with the road and its users. Traffic signals and other vehicle information are displayed to the driver via the new display, whilst the Golf also shares these signals with other Car2X vehicles.
Drivers can choose from petrol, diesel and natural gas, meaning there’s an efficient model for every family. The petrol engines offer 90PS and 110PS, or there’s 115PS and 150PS available from the diesel engines. Both diesel engines offer innovative new technology to reduce NO2 emissions by up to 80%. The TGI natural gas engine offers an output of 130PS. If it’s hybrid technology you’re searching for, then you’re in luck with the new Golf; five hybrid drive versions will be available, three eTSI engines, a plug-in hybrid and a sporty GTE.
For more information on the new Volkswagen Golf, or to register your interest in upgrading your vehicle, please contact a member of the Sales team at your local Vindis Volkswagen retailer. Our dealerships can be found HERE.
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.
