“Golf has been at the heart of the Volkswagen brand for half a century,” recalls Thomas Schäfer, CEO of the Volkswagen brand. “It is synonymous with affordable mobility, accessible to everyone, without compromising on technical quality. It is by constantly adapting to the needs of customers that it has established itself at the top of sales worldwide. This is a best seller “made in Wolfsburg”.

The new generation is distinguished by an immediately recognizable front design, especially thanks to the new LED lights. In their advanced version, i.e. the IQ.LIGHT2 matrix lamps, they consist of two high-performance, very long-lasting high beam lamps. In addition, for the first time on a European model, an illuminated Volkswagen logo adorns the grille2. The design of the IQ.LIGHT 3D LED rear light clusters has also been revised, for the Golf and Golf SW.
