The New Golf GTE is now available to order. The new GTE and GTE Advance models have Car-Net App Connect, front and rear full LED lights with sweeping indicators on the rear and Active Info Display which were not on the outgoing model – as do the new Golf GTD/GTI and R models. The Golf GTE is a plug in hybrid which is a part petrol/part electric car.
The new Golf GTE has some amazing statistics:
Active Info Display
Thanks to the optional Active Info Display, you can enjoy the advantages of an instrument cluster with a high resolution 31 cm (12.3-inch) colour display.
With various information profiles, you can decide which specific data are displayed in the instrument cluster in addition to the usual gauges such as the rev counter, speedometer and odometer.You can select this information profile quickly and easily using the optional multifunctional steering wheel.
In the Discover Navigation Infotainment system, you can decide whether you would like to see the navigation map in the Active Info Display, or have the classic view on the system display. With Discover Navigation Pro, both display options are available simultaneously.
Small gestures can achieve a lot in everyday life, but also when it comes to gesture control in your car. This function makes it even more convenient to operate the optional Discover Navigation Pro system.
It enables you to easily move around in the main menu and various submenus using a right-to-left swipe gesture to switch pages. For example, with just a single hand movement, you can switch radio station, songs, or photos. For each gesture, you use a colour code on the user interfact to see where gesture control works and where it doesnt - after all, the traditional control options are of course also available for use at any time.
Beautifully convenient: the optional 'Advanced' mobile phone interface not only had a hands-free system, but also an wireless charging function.
The additional inductive connection on the external aerial, and USB data and charging cable in the centre armrest, mean that phone calls in the New Golf are particularly convenient.
What's truly special about this is that the inductive aerial connection, combined with a first-rate microphone in the headliner and audio output via the internal loudspeaker, guarantee outstanding voice quality. An additional cradle is no longer needed.
Be entertained en route with Composition Media featuring DAB and a 8" touchscreen as standard.
Car-Net connects the new Golf with the internet. Now a lot of things are possible: use your smartphone with the touchscreen on board, bypass traffic jams and find the cheapest fuel station with Guide and Inform.
Car-Net App-Connect includes three innovative technological functions which you can use to display your smartphone apps on the touchscreen of your Infotainment system – MirrorLink™, Android Auto™ from Google, and Apple CarPlay™.
