twists. The exterior has evolved to include a leaner front grille and narrow LED headlights for a clean, contemporary look, with an imposing bumper that sits lower to the ground for a more dynamic look and responsive performance. Inside, the focus is on design, function, comfort and personal choice, with technology that’s nothing short of revolutionary.
If the exterior excites, the interior more than delivers. Colourful ambient lighting, a digital cockpit with intuitive touch controls and Digital Cockpit Pro which is a fully configurable, interactive 10 inch TFT dash display replacing the standard analogue instrument cluster, not only make a statement but herald a new generation of style and experience.

Driver assistance systemsThe Golf 8 comes with a wide range of Driver Assistance systems including Adaptive Cruise Control and Park Assist which tells you if a space is large enough to fit into and then parks for you. It also comes with Travel Assist, which not only keeps you in your lane but can automate acceleration and braking to make driving in heavy traffic less tiring.
