Volkswagen introduced a new front fascia, headlights, infotainment system, engine options and safety features in the Golf. These make the Volkswagen Golf the sportiest vehicle in its segment, according to a source.

Exterior

The most popular change on the Golf’s exterior is the sportier front fascia and bigger air dam. The chrome grille now extends into the headlights through the sporty LED stripe that surrounds the bottom and outer edges of each headlight bulb.

Models with the adaptive cruise control or front assist will include a hidden radar sensor behind the VW emblem. Overall, the new model has a sportier appeal than the old one. Though not much changed at the rear, the new models come standard with LED taillights. Higher-end models have Individual LED for taillight and brake lights to differentiate them from the lower models.

Interior

There are no drastic changes in the interior of the new Golf, though there are new decorative trim panels for the dash, doors and center console. The seats also have new covers and trimmings.
