The new, redesigned Golf 8 will open for order on Thursday 6 February with two new trims and a wealth of new technology.
The UK's best-selling Volkswagen now comes with an abundance of new technologies as standard, including ten-inch Active Info Display, ten-inch infotainment display, LED headlights and a first for Volkswagen, the Car2X safety technology. While the exterior design of the Golf 8 is an evolution over its predecessor, the interior is where the revolution really begins.
Volkswagen have renamed two of their most popular golf trims and updated the specifications. The SE/Match has been replaced by the new Life trim and the GT/GT Edition has been replaced by the Style trim. There will be a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. In addition to the Life and Style trims, further trim details will be announced at later date.
