Launched ahead of the recent controversy that resulted in Volkswagen
recalling over 25,000
vehicles in Australia, the new model VW Golf is the seventh generation of Volkswagen's most popular car.
This seventh generation Golf resets the standard for VW with improved dynamics, safety, fuel efficiency and value.
The new Golf improves on the older car but does not cost any more.
The new Volkswagen Golf delivers a design with improvements to key areas: its weight has been reduced, thereby
reversing the often cited upward weight spiral. Fuel economy has improved by a maximum of 16 per cent, depending on
engine selection. In addition, Volkswagen is equipping the Golf with new assistance systems – some as options, and some
The hunt for every last gramme of weight saving did not lead to advances being achieved at the expense of steps
backwards in other areas. Volkswagen has demonstrated that the Golf stands more than ever for a democratisation of
progress and for a high standard in every detail: with added space; new pioneering safety systems such as the
multi-collision brake system and advanced fuel efficiency measures such as BlueMotion Technology as standard.
As Volkswagen understands the need Australian drivers have to cover long distances in a single trip, all Golf 7s
delivered to Australia also come standard with a potentially life-saving driver fatigue detection system, which
analyses driving style in the initial kilometres of a trip, and then monitors the driver’s steering and response
patterns, recommending regular breaks upon detecting lapses in driver concentration.
Further adding to the comprehensive array of standard equipment are features that were previously reserved for high
performance models, in this case the Extended Differential Lock (XDL) - which debuted with the Golf GTI - now fitted
across the range.
Inside, occupants will not only appreciate the more spacious and practical interior but will find an infotainment
system with a 5.8-inch display which responds to touch, as well as ‘smartphonestyle’ swipe and zoom hand gestures to
scroll through media content. The new Golf’s infotainment system is USB, SD card and Bluetooth enabled.
In conjunction with the increase in standard features, the range has been simplified both in terms of options and
powertrain. All models offer new levels of comfort and practicality, with an extra 30 litres of boot space and more
legroom for passengers in the rear. The handbrake is replaced with an electronic parking brake, which frees more space in
the cabin, allowing for greater storage space. The Golf’s innovative Eco Tip function, which gives drivers advice on ways
to save fuel while driving, further adds value and convenience to customers.
All models in the new VW Golf range boast the next generation platform and engines. The new entry model, 90TSI Golf 7,
replaces the 77TSI Golf 6, with a more powerful and fuel efficient engine delivering refinement, comfort, value, safety
The 90TSI Comfortline offers a comprehensive array of standard features including a rear-view camera, front and rear
parking sensors, rain sensing windscreen wipers, auto dimming rear-view mirror and automatic headlights, plus dual-zone
climate control air conditioning and alloy wheels.
For the first time in the Golf line-up, the Highline specification in available in conjunction with the 103TSI and
Both petrol and diesel models come comprehensively equipped respectively with standard 7 or 6-speed DSG, alcantara and
cloth trim, 17-inch alloy wheels and Discover Media Satellite Navigation. The performance and economy of both Highline
engines is exceptional, with the 103TSI’s combined fuel consumption rated at 5.2l/100km.
