Unmistakably Golf but with innovative twists, the Golf 8 is a truly modern hatchback.
The Golf 8’s exterior features clean design with narrow LED headlights and a leaner front grille. The imposing bumper gives the Golf 8 more presence and now sits lower to the ground, for a more responsive performance.
The Golf 8 features Volkswagen’s most advanced connectivity and driver assistance systems.
The Car2X communicates wirelessly with other Car2X enabled vehicles on the road to provide you with the most up to date traffic information. When you’re stuck in heavy traffic, it uses the information it receives to detect when the end of the jam is coming up and readies the car’s Adaptive Cruise Control.
