The functions include a front axle differential lock, a sound actuator and the latest generation of the keyless locking and starting system Keyless Access. In the interior, the top-of-the-range version of the Digital Cockpit (multiple screen configurations) and the 10-inch Discover Media navigation system merge to form a digital landscape. The Golf GTE is started by means of the engine button in the centre console which pulsates in red when the vehicle is stopped. All pedals are made of stainless steel. Like the typical red on the Golf GTI, blue is used on the new Golf GTE as a distinctive colour to finish elements such as the premium sport seats, steering wheel and radiator grille bar. The Golf GTE is also equipped as standard with a new LED light strip under the radiator grille bar. LED Plus headlights additionally turn night into day as standard.
