An iconic family hatchback of the modern age, the Volkswagen Golf has amused and delighted literally millions of owners across the world since its introduction in 1974. Eight generations later and the tried-and-trusted hatch is truly ready for a connected future.
The exterior look is brand new, with strong lines and stylish touches that are really reflective of the broader Volkswagen range in 2020. Narrow LED headlights and a lean front grille give the car an athletic, dynamic presence, and it wears the all-new VW badge with real pride.
The interior is pure Volkswagen, which means it is pure quality. Premium materials pop up everywhere you look and touch, and there’s a movement towards a button-less future, with an infotainment system that is almost-exclusively touchscreen based.
It’s a 10-inch Discover Navigation system, since you asked, and it’s standard across all MY20 Golfs, which means that DAB radio and wireless phone connectivity are standard too.
Another large screen behind the steering wheel takes care of driver information, with the beautifully bright 10.25-inch display providing endless instrument customisation for a driving experience that is truly your own.
Initially available in Life, Style, and R-Line trim levels, the new Golf is as stylish as it is practical. Ample room for five occupants, along with ample boot space, make the new Golf the ideal travel companion.
It’s available with an impressive selection of engines at launch too, with 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol engines and a 2.0-litre diesel engine on the choice list, along with a choice of automatic or manual gearbox, depending on the spec and powertrain you choose.
If you’re looking forward to an electrified future, the 1.0-litre petrol is also available as a mild hybrid, giving incredible efficiency and economy. The ID.3 is the Golf’s all-electric sibling, if you’re looking to make the full switch to clean motoring.
n the world of performance Golfs, Volkswagen have already unveiled the Golf GTI, Golf GTE, and Golf GTD, with a brand new Golf R expected to follow later this year.
The Golf GTI offers 245PS of power and that classic GTI look, while the much-loved Golf GTD returns for another generation with a strong 200PS and 400Nm of torque from its diesel powerplant.
The last Golf GTE was a runaway success, and it returns for another generation with 245PS from its plug-in hybrid powertrain.
All three of GTI, GTD, and GTE are front-wheel drive, and will offer impressive levels of equipment as well as an engaging drive when they land later this year.
A high-performance Golf R is also on the cards for late 2020 – check back for more information when we have it!
