Volkswagen Unveils the New 2017 Golf
  • Here’s the First Look of 2017 Volkswagen Golf Facelift

The new Golf is here with a few styling changes.

The new and recent version of VW Golf has been unveiled by the company. The Volkswagen Golf 2017 has gotten a facelift along with a few styling tweaks.

Its interior is upgraded and it has got a newly developed, fresh 1.5 liter four cylinders turbocharged petrol engine. The car will be available for sale in next April with three and five-door hatchback options too.

Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management, explained at the world premiere: "The main focus is on a completely new generation of infotainment and connectivity. No other compact car is smarter, safer or more interconnected."

Dr Herbert Diess continues: "Volkswagen is gaining momentum. In 2017, we will be presenting more than ten new models and major updates. By 2020, we will have renewed our complete line-up."

The changes that have been introduced in new Golf are the ones which has made it efficient overall. This is the seventh generation of the model and we are looking forward to a pretty changed eighth generation of this car in year 2019.

"With the 2017 model year Golf we are introducing automated driving functions to the compact class for the first time ever", says Dr Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for Technical Development.

The chief engineer continues: "Thanks to the fusion of the Lane Assist lane departure warning system and the adaptive cruise control ACC, Traffic Jam Assist can take control at speeds of up to 60 km/h in strenuous stop-and-go traffic. It steers, brakes and accelerates the new Golf."

The price of 2017 Volkswagen Golf Facelift hasn’t been announced yet. However we have been told by the VW officials that the price of entry level Golf will increase a bit as compared to older price.

It was available earlier in 17,625 pounds. The price increase is because of the new development and higher technology used in car.

Overall the car is pretty much the same expect a few changes here and there. The upfront bumper has a grille and lightly restyled wings. The lights have been revised with altered graphics and the car has been given a LED beam which is a new addition.

These are introduced in place of Xenon lights. The rear has been given full LED lights and newly designed bumper too. The bumper has integral tailpipes. Other than these the car will be introduced with newly designed wheels and exterior colors which are a brand new addition to this model.

The car will have a 12.3 inches high definition monitor featuring Active Infor Display. It will have latest version of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It will also feature the 3.0 version of Park Assist.
