Seriously fun

The Golf. The legacy continues

The Golf is the vehicle that has shaped its own class for generations. Now it's setting a new milestone for the next generation with little additions to the iconic design, intuitive technology and evolutionary safety features. The benchmark just keeps getting better. 

The hatch that suits every lifestyle

The popular one. The Golf

Features & Design

Our most popular hatch has been an icon on New Zealand roads for many years. With clean lines and perfect proportions, the Golf has kept its classic European styling whilst transforming to suit todays modern lifestyle. The Golf is truly a pleasure to drive.


Puts on a display

With perfect proportions, clean lines and unmistakable Volkswagen styling, the latest Golf marks the next step in the evolution of this model, boasting a striking level of design.


Never out of style

Stepping into the Golf, you immediately feel a balance of comfort, style and ergonomics. The driver-focused dashboard delivers on fluid functionality, and with Vienna leather appointed upholstery3, and brushed chrome trim on the instrument dials, air vents, and gear shift lever, it's a sporty type of luxury you'd expect from a Volkswagen Golf.


Quick and efficient

The Golf is unexpectedly a fuel efficient car. It houses a highly-responsive turbocharged 1.4L TSI engine, which delivers 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque. And with super low fuel consumption of 5.7L/100km for manual and only 5.4L/100km for DSG, you get the best of both worlds where performance meets efficiency4.

4. Fuel consumption figures according to Australia Design Rule (ADR) 81/02 derived from laboratory testing. Factors including but not limited to driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental influences, vehicle condition and accessories fitted, will in practice in the real world lead to figures which generally differ from those advertised. Advertised figures are meant for comparison amongst vehicles only.


Your Golf will keep you safe

The Golf is packed with safety features and assistance programmes to ensure that your drive is both safe and stress free.

Seven Airbags

As safe as safe can be

You'll be glad you're in a Golf if something goes wrong. Feel protected with seven airbags as standard, including front, front side, front and rear curtain, and driver's knee.

Driver Fatigue Detection

Wide awake

The Golf comes with this potentially life saving system, which evaluates steering movements and other independant signals to determine if the driver is fatigued. If detected, the system then warns the driver with an alarm and a visual alert on the multi-function display, and recommends the driver take a break2.

Electromechanical Parking Brake & Auto Hold

Give your foot a break

A button now conveniently replaces the conventional handbrake in the Golf. Plus with Auto Hold, as your car comes to a stop, the ABS hydraulic unit holds the electric brakes, allowing you to comfortably take your foot off the pedal.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Make each journey cruisy

Adaptive Cruise Control5 lets you set the speed you want to travel, and the distance you want to leave between you and the car in front, making those long-haul drives so much easier2.

Style or Performance? Have both!

The Volkswagen Golf features a powerful turbocharged engine (TSI) to ensure excellent drivability while maintaining European style through its well proportioned smooth lines.

Infotainment system


Whether you’re after seamless car Bluetooth® to make calls or listen to your own music, the Golf has you covered with the latest infotainment technology. The brilliant high-resolution touchscreens offers you a variety of features to explore, and App-Connect6 allows you to seamlessly connect selected apps your smartphone.

Driver Personalisation Function

As you please

The optional Driver Personalisation Function7 in the Golf takes driving to a whole new level. Set your preferred driver settings, air conditioning, radio station, safety assistance and more, and save them directly to your car key. Even with multiple drivers, the Golf will remember you and adjust its settings accordingly, making for a personalised driving experience every time. 

Active Info Display

Illuminating dash

Say goodbye to analogue and hello to digital with the optional Active Info Display8. The 12.3" high-definition digital screen puts everything you need right in front of you, with configurable views such as navigation, infotainment, driver assistance and vehicle performance.

Keyless Access

Open sesame

It's not magic, it's Keyless Access9. The keyless car entry system is easier than pressing a button. Just approach your vehicle with the keys in your pocket and the car will automatically unlock. Once inside, you can fire up the engine with just a push of a button.
