For more than four decades now, a new Golf has rolled off the production lines every 40 seconds. The best-selling model was extensively updated in 2017 – with the most advanced engines, a sharper design, a new generation of infotainment systems and extended equipment. The update of the Golf, which has now been sold more than 33 million times, is reflected by a new state of the art of assistance systems in the compact class. Technologies such as the City Emergency Braking function with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist), the new Traffic Jam Assist (partially automated driving up to 60 km/h) and the Emergency Assist, also new in this segment, significantly improve safety levels. The Golf is one of the few cars in the world available with all relevant powertrain types: gasoline, diesel, CNG, plug-in hybrid and electric.
