All New Volkswagen Golf MK7
The New Volkswagen Golf MK7 From Just £16,495 OTR
One of the most popular small family cars on the road is back with a new generation model. The Golf MK7 has a wide range of new features that keeps the Golf name fresh, modern and desirable. The newest feat of engineering that the new Golf boasts is the all new Volkswagen AG MQB platform, which allows a wider choice of engines and powertrains as well as contributing towards the Golf MK7 being up to 100KG lighter whilst also giving it a stronger and safer frame, not via the use of costly materials such as Aluminium and Carbon Fibre, but via the use of cleverly utilised steels in the places of the frame that matter, resulting in a more affordable Golf for you, the customers.
The standard specification of the Volkswagen Golf MK7 includes:
- 15” steel wheels + compact spare wheel
- Composition Media System with 5.8” colour touch screen
- Bluetooth connectivity

- Multiple impact braking system
- Manual air conditioning

The design of the Golf MK7 features a sharper, more aerodynamic shape with elements of Volkswagen’s design DNA. The design DNA is a collection of iconic features that have been collected from the previous Volkswagen greats, such as the historic roofline and radiator grille crossbeam from the original Golf. These features help to keep the Golf MK7 unmistakably Volkswagen, while adding futuristic design features such as striking Xenon headlamps and bright red LED rear lights that make the Volkswagen Golf MK7 a challenge to miss.
The interior of the MK7 Golf is now more sophisticated and ergonomic. A new feature to all Volkswagens is a touch screen media system. The Golf MK7 includes a 5.8” colour touch screen system that is designed to not only be simple to use, but accommodate touch screen gestures as found in the latest smart phones, to make sure the Golf is more familiar to use from the start. Space has been increased on the interior via the use of a longer and wider wheelbase, passengers will now have more space to enjoy the Golf, as well as an extra 30 litres of boot space and new seating arrangements that now make the Golf even smarter at taking luggage. A DAB digital radio is built-in as standard as well as various media inputs including USB/ iPod connection and Bluetooth to make sure you can play your music and answer/make your calls without having to take your eyes off the road. A number of leather colour schemes are available too, so you can tailor the interior to be as you want it, modern and sporty, elegant and sophisticated, or even retro.
