The new version of a classic. 

The Golf is celebrating its 50th anniversary and has a new look for the occasion, boasting visual and functional updates and enhanced performance for added driving pleasure. With its choice of engines, equipment and features you can experience that familiar Golf feeling in a new and personalised way.


Harmoniously coordinated: The Golf impresses visually with its optional stylish bumpers. New headlights and tail light clusters, featuring optional dynamic turn signals, make it a true eye-catcher.

More Golf, more style: The new seat covers, available in fabric or ArtVelours, and the high-gloss center console give the interior of the new Golf a luxurious feel. The optional 32.7 cm (12.9 inch) infotainment display elevates entertainment and navigation to a new level. Additionally, the standard multifunction steering wheel with classic push buttons enhances your driving comfort.


Power redesigned

Your Golf offers two engine options: a 1.5-liter TSI with 115 PS or a 1.5-liter engine with 150 PS. Both variants come with a DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

The e-TSI model, featuring mild hybrid technology, includes a starter generator that assists the engine during takeoff and at low speeds. The lithium-ion battery is recharged through braking and coasting, significantly reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

Additionally, the Golf Style is available as a plug-in hybrid. This model combines an electric motor with a TSI petrol engine. When fully charged, the Golf eHybrid can travel up to 100 kilometers in electric-only mode, according to the WLTP method. The TSI engine activates automatically based on speed, driving mode, and other factors.
