JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE updated Volkswagen Golf is being launched in South Africa with a revised engine line up, more technology, new infotainment, improved connectivity and revised styling.
It has a retail price starting at R289 900.
According to the car maker, the new Golf now offers even more value, style and desirability into what is aptly referred to by many as the ‘Golf class’, building on the appeal of the Golf Mk VII.
The latest updated Golf continues to offer customers a car that sets benchmarks in comfort, practicality, safety and efficiency.
Emerging from Volkswagen factories around the globe for 43 years and now at an average rate of one every 40 seconds, the brand’s family favourite remains a popular choice  in South Africa.
With global sales now well in excess of 33 million (nearly 350 750 sold in South Africa) since its launch more than four decades ago, the updated version of the seventh generation Golf is once again redefining its market segment by bringing ‘big car’ technology to the compact family car class.
Democratising quality and value is a longstanding Volkswagen tenet and it is enthusiastically employed in the updated Golf.
Now standard across the range are LED rear lights, for instance, while all derivatives across model line-up are also now offered with a new generation of larger and more sophisticated touchscreen infotainment systems.
