The new Golf Coming soon
Wolfsburg, November 2016. Volkswagen is digitalising the most successful model in the Group’s history – the Golf – with a major update. The main focus of the 2017 model year is – alongside new engines, keener design and new assistance systems – a completely new generation of infotainment systems. As a world first in the compact class, the top-of-the-range “Discover Pro” system can be operated by gesture control. With its 9.2-inch screen it forms a conceptual and visual entity with the Active Info Display, which is also new to the Golf. In parallel to this, the range of online services and apps has also been enlarged. The update to the Golf, of which over 33 million have been sold to date, also reflects a new standard for assistance systems in the compact class: technologies such as City Emergency Braking with new Pedestrian Monitoring function, the new Traffic Jam Assist (partially automated driving at speeds of up to 60 km/h) and Emergency Assist, which is also new in this segment, significantly improve safety.
The new Golf opens for order in the UK in 2017.
The new Beetle Now open for order
Now, this latest iteration of perhaps the best loved Volkswagen is being refreshed, with changes that include a more sculptured body and a fresh interior design. The styling enhancements and new options further enrich the appeal and value that is inherent in Volkswagen’s Beetle range, which is available in coupe and cabriolet forms and, with the new Beetle Dune, as a crossover.
The new up! Now open for order
Opening for order at Volkswagen Retailers nationwide on the 21st of July, the revised up! boasts a subtly enhanced exterior design, the option of a new 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged engine offering up to 90 PS (available to order from August), and extra equipment as standard. A significantly broader range of exterior colours, decals and roof colours, allied to a large number of interior personalisation options, mean today’s up! can be carefully tailored to a buyer’s precise requirements, too, for the ultimate in city car individualisation.
The new Tiguan Now open for order
The new Tiguan
The first versions of the dynamic new Tiguan SUV today (5 April 2016) open for order at Volkswagen UK Retailers nationwide. Designed and engineered to redefine the compact SUV segment new Tiguan introduces class-leading levels of interior space, practicality and safety while also debuting cutting-edge technology and connectivity.
New from the ground up, today’s Tiguan brings previously unseen levels of quality and refinement to its sector with a premium look and feel that belie its price. The first new Volkswagen SUV to sit on the innovative and flexible MQB platform – which also underpins the class-leading Volkswagen Golf – the new car signals the start of a comprehensive SUV offensive which will see the brand represented in all core SUV segments over time.
The new Passat GTE Now open for order
Space, pace, and environmental credentials that even before its official UK showroom debut have already secured it a prestigious ‘green’ award: the new Volkswagen Passat GTE is calculated to offer drivers the very best of all worlds.
A winner in the Large Family Car class in the recent Next Green Car Awards even before its showroom debut here, the new Passat GTE is available to order early August through the Volkswagen UK retailer network with prices starting at £36,525 (RRP OTR), excluding Government Plug-In Car Grant of £2,500.
