Volkswagen Golf

The iconic hatchback. 

Volkswagen’s benchmark in safety, driver assistance features, and style.

The Volkswagen Golf – shaping the hatchback class for generations. Unmistakably Golf with innovative twists, the updated style features advanced connectivity, drivers assistance systems, and fresh looks.

The Golf 8 meets at the crossroads of stylish and utilitarian, meeting modern needs and making a statement while doing it. Bursts of colour – both inside and out – allow for a playful representation of personality without compromising on refinement. With roominess inside and out, you’re forgiven for forgetting the Golf is a hatchback.

Advanced Safety Features.

Drive more comfortably with the intelligent driver assistance systems. Systems like Side Assist (Blind Spot Monitor) use an LED signal on your exterior mirrors to warn you if there’s a vehicle in your blind spot. Front Assist (Autonomous Emergency braking assistant with Pedestrian and Cyclist Monitoring) can help the driver avoid an accident in the event of a collision threat, or mitigate the severity of a collision. If the driver does not react in time, the system can initiate emergency parking.*

*Within the limitations of the system. The driver must be in control of the vehicle at all times and is not relieved of his responsibility to drive the car carefully.

“I commute each day from Rangiora into Christchurch, and in some cases – when there’s average traffic – I haven’t needed to use the pedals from the moment I get on the motorway to the point where I hit the first t-junction at Bealey Avenue.”
