For 2017, Volkswagen has updated its most successful model ever, the Golf. Now on sale in the UK, the new Golf has been updated with the new generation of infotainment systems and new engines.

Costing a little less than before, the 2017 Golf range starts off with the S 1.0 TSI three-door variant. Now standard across the range are LED rear lights while the majority of models across the hatchback and estate line-up are also now offered with a new generation of larger and improved touchscreen infotainment systems.   

The major update of the 2017 Golf is the all-digital display and control concept. It is based on the new Active Info Display and the first infotainment system with gesture control to be offered in a Volkswagen. The Golf’s Active Info Display is a fully digital instrument cluster with 12.3-inch colour display. The 2017 Golf is also the first ever compact vehicle to come with gesture control.

Besides the all-new tech, the 2017 Golf also features the enhanced EA211 TSI engine family. The highlight of the range is the all-new 1.5 TSI unit with around 145bhp. This will be followed by a BlueMotion version producing 130bhp. Volkswagen has also boosted the performance of the Golf GTI, the new version of which will produce 230bhp and 245bhp (GTI Performance). What’s more, a new 7-speed DSG will gradually replace the 6-speed DSG as a high-efficiency gearbox for the Golf.
