Interior and Technology

Drivers will appreciate the well-appointed cockpit. A front center armrest and multi-function trip computer keep you comfortable and informed. A choice of six-way or 12-way power-adjustable chairs help you find the right position for driving. The front passenger can also enjoy a power chair. Volkswagen offers the Climatronic dual-zone system which lets the Golf driver and front passenger set the temperature for their area. Available ambient lighting makes the cabin nicer at night. If you love open air driving, an available panoramic sunroof lets in light and air. The regular Golf has a generous 22 cu.ft. for gear while the larger Sportswagen and AllTrack boost that to 30 cu.ft. The cargo hold has an adjustable floor and can be expanded with split-fold second-row seats.

You'll find plenty of information and entertainment using the 6.5-inch touchscreen on the VW Golf. VW AppNet expands how many apps and functions you can access. A rearview camera reveals obstacles behind the car. If you choose the bigger eight-inch screen, you get a Composition Media system with a proximity sensor. Keeping things simple, major functions are accessed with simple touchpoints. If you want a digital dashboard, you can get this configurable instrumentation on the e-Golf and Golf R.

2018 VW Golf Interior


The 2018 VW Golf has been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The hatch, GTI and Sportwagen have earned the coveted five-star rating. Should a crash occur, the Intelligent Crash Response System cuts the engine, unlocks the doors, and turns on the hazard lights. Automatic post-crash braking may spare the driver from a secondary impact. Golf SE editions have a whole suite of crash avoidance features. Front assist watches for frontal collision dangers, warns the driver, and engages the brake automatically, when necessary. A new pedestrian monitor has been added to the menu. A blind spot monitor watches for side traffic while the rear cross-traffic alert helps keep reverse maneuvers safe. Autobahn editions add a lane departure system with an automated assist to help you maintain the best trajectory. These editions have a Park Pilot to help with parallel or perpendicular parking. In addition, you can get adaptive cruise control and high beam control, two high-tech driver aids.
