Keyword revolution: This applies equally to the spaciousness feeling, ease of use, the solid choice and durability. And for decades of iconic design. “A striking face with a low front section. Never before has a Golf looked so sporty, so cool,” was how Brandstätter described the impact of the new design developed by Volkswagen Chief Designer, Klaus Bischoff and his team.
The digital cockpit is also completely new. “In an increasingly complex world, the new Golf enables the driver to operate it simply and intuitively”, Klaus Bischoff said. Virtually all display and control elements are digital: the new instruments and online infotainment systems merge to form a display landscape with touch buttons and sliders. Optionally, a Windshield head-up display completes the information spectrum.
As a vehicle that shaped the DNA of the Volkswagen brand like no other, the eighth generation Golf will also write a piece of personal history for millions of customers worldwide. “The Golf is the car used for taking their driving tests to the young at heart. It is a timeless classic. It is classless both in front of the opera house and the clubhouse,” said Volkswagen CEO Diess. COO Brandstätter added: “And yet, the new Golf still remains a true Golf. A car that you can rely on every day – and a car that’s ready for adventure.”
