Finding the perfect temperature can literally keep people up at night. In the new Golf, you can find it easily on the infotainment system along with functions, such as 'warm hands' or 'fresh air'. The best part, your passenger in the front can set their own temperature, as well as anyone in the back, thanks to the 3-Zone Climate Control.
Sound you can feel
Harmoniously integrating with the new Golf's interior, the optional Harman Kardon premium audio system delivers superior sound with a personalised listening experience. Choose a setting to match your mood from: Pure, Chill Out, Live, and Energy, and experience every song as the artist intended.

With I.Q. DRIVE, the new Golf features a comprehensive suite of driver assistance systems at your back.2
An assistant you can count on
The new Golf puts your safety in the spotlight. Using a multi-function camera and radar, your semi-autonomous assistant can ensure you stay within lane markings, monitor potential collisions and even adapt your speed to traffic situations.2
Impress friends, family and the occasional pedestrian as you glide into tricky parallel and right-angle spots with ease. Using the rear-view camera and semi-automated Park Assist's sensors, the new Golf can do the manoeuvring for you while you focus on the pedals.2
Protective by nature
Keeping people safe is all a part of the Golf's nature. With the ability to detect hazards, the new safety systems can support you in critical situations, activate protective mechanisms to tighten seatbelts and roll the windows up, or even bring the vehicle to a stop.2
