The New Volkswagen Golf – Now Open for Booking

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is now accepting bookings for the new Volkswagen Golf variants at all Volkswagen dealerships nationwide. The Golf family consists of the Golf TSI in Sportline and R-Line, the iconic Golf GTI and performance-driven Golf R.

The new Golf family retains the charisma of past models with the unmistakeable design, and has been updated with details such as redesigned bumpers, new conceptualised headlights and LED tail lights.

Launched in 1974, the Golf is the Volkswagen brand's most successful model, and has played a major role in the automotive industry by setting standards in the compact class and pioneering the advancement of leading vehicle technologies. It has won numerous awards, including "Compact Family Car of the Year" by UK's Auto Express, and "Best Small Car" in the 2017 Daily News Autos Award.

Recognised the world over, the first Golf GTI invented the hot hatch category when it was launched. No surprise then that it was awarded as the "Most Influential Car of All Time" by UK motoring magazine Autocar UK. The ultimate performance hatch, the Golf R has set and broken numerous track records around the world. On the road and track, its appeal lies in the fact that it is one of the most well-rounded cars available in the market.

To date, more than 34 million units of the Golf in its different body variants have been produced and sold around the world. A new Golf was built, purchased and delivered every 40 seconds, on average, over the past four decades.

Mr Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM is confident that the new Golf family will be well-received in Malaysia as it already has a strong local following. "With the introduction of four variants, there is a Golf for everyone. We are certain that the range will fulfil the expectations and desires of Golf fans here in Malaysia," he added.

VPCM is also offering Malaysians the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to the Wörthersee GTI Festival in Austria. The contest is currently ongoing and will end on the 27th of March 2018. Details can be found at the Volkswagen Malaysia website.  

Members of the public will have the opportunity to view the new Golf GTI and Golf R at the upcoming Volkswagen Tours. The GTI will be on display at AEON Bandar Dato Onn in Johor Bahru, on the 27th March till 1st April, while the Golf R will make its local debut at 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 28 March till 1 April 2018.

Bookings and test drive arrangements can be made at all authorized Volkswagen dealerships nationwide. For more information, please visit www.volkswagen.com.my
