With an exclusive concept car, the Golf Edition, Volkswagen is celebrating at the Auto China the 40th anniversary of the Golf, which has been successful around the globe. The anniversary edition's equipment was extensively customised. A Golf has emerged that will be on the road in a league of its own as one of the most premium models in its class. With its iconic design and pioneering all-round features, the Volkswagen best-seller, of which more than 30 million have been sold worldwide, was reflective of technological progress, and always head and shoulders above the rest. With the Golf Edition, another highlight in the history of this model range is launched.
Special paint effect and 19-inch wheels. From the outside, the concept car can be recognised by the exclusive "Magic Morning" colour and machine-polished "Madrid" 19-inch alloy wheels; while the "metallic" basic colour is white, it has a striking golden shimmer depending on the angle of vision. The mirror caps of the Golf Edition are finished in "matt chrome." Another distinctive feature is a badge on the B pillars showing an engraved laurel wreath with the number "40".
Two-tone leather upholstery. The two-tone interior is particularly exclusive and features leather upholstery ("Sensitive" type of leather) that comes in two colours: "St. Tropez" (bright as a sand beach) and "black". The sporty seats are another highlight. The centre panels up to the headrests are done in "St. Tropez". The centre panels of the seats and backs are upholstered with diamond-shaped stitching. The seams have a brown hue, making for a warm contrast to the bright "St. Tropez" colour. The interior designers opted for black leather as upholstery material for the side and outside surfaces. Brown leather piping in "Sevilla" forms the interface between the bright "St. Tropez" and the "black" surfaces. The three-seat rear seating system is designed in the same style as the front sports seats. The two outside seating surfaces in the rear give the impression of exclusive individual seats.
Wood inlays and piano finish. Wood inlays in the door trim panels (with integrated ambience lighting) and in the dashboard on the passenger's side are used for the first time in the latest Golf. Perfectly matching in bright "St. Tropez" are the door inserts in leather, roof pillar panels, interior rooflining and arm rests. Making for a striking contrast is the decor of the centre console, the instrument surrounds as well as the trims around the air vents in high-gloss black piano finish. Likewise in "St. Tropez" colour: the contrasting seams of the multifunction steering wheel covered in black leather and the gear shift grip, also fitted in black leather. The floor mats adopt the diamond pattern of the seats. The door sill plates are equipped with ambience lighting and, after opening the doors, make the initial impression of the new Golf Edition absolutely perfect.
