Driving with a little help behind the wheel

From steering support to speeding up or slowing down, IQ.DRIVE technology helps keep your mind at ease. Our engineers would tell you it's because it has hands on semi-automated driving capabilities, but we like to think of it as an added boost of reassurance to help keep you safer on the road.⁠


Adaptive Cruise Control

Going with the flow made more stress-free

When the road gets busy, IQ.DRIVE can help keep things cruising. When dealing with traffic on the highway, it uses sensors to detect vehicles ahead of you, helping adjust your speed, and manages the distance between you and what's in front of you, adapting to the situation you're in.⁠


Side Assist

Helping steer you clear of the things you might not see

When you're focused on the journey ahead, your vehicle's IQ.DRIVE technologies can help by alerting you when another vehicle may be hiding in your blind spots and helping counter-steer when necessary.⁠

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Backing you up when you back up

You can't always see what might be crossing behind you when reversing out of a parking spot or backing out of a driveway. IQ.DRIVE technologies can help monitor what's behind, alerting you when cars and motorcycles that could cause a collision are detected and helping hit the brakes before it's too late.⁠

Front Assist

Alerting you before a collision

Even when we're driving at our best, we still need to keep an eye out to avoid accidents with other cars or pedestrians in front of us. Thankfully, the IQ.DRIVE technology monitors the road ahead with the ability to help brake on its own. It'll first provide audio and visual alerts when you're driving at higher speeds and at risk of a potential collision. Then, if necessary, it'll automatically apply brakes to help mitigate or avoid a collision.⁠


Emergency Assist

Helping you stop when you can’t

When Travel or Lane Assist is active and something serious happens where you lose the ability to drive, IQ.DRIVE technologies can help bring you to a stop. First, it'll alert you numerous times and if you're still unresponsive, it'll bring the car to a controlled stop, helping to keep you and others on the road safer.⁠

Lane Assist

Helping you stay between the lines for the long haul

No matter what kind of road you're driving on, if you're 35 mph or faster, IQ.DRIVE can help keep you from going over the lines. If your vehicle begins to drift without your turn signal on, IQ.DRIVE can warn you and counter-steer when activated to help ensure you stay in your lane.

Safety Cell

Keeping you safe

The safety structure of the Golf GTI is made to protect you and your loved ones in an emergency situation. The combination of high quality steel is extensively engineered for this purpose. 7 airbags (including a centre airbag) also adds the additional protection needed. 


Evolutionary outside, revolutionary inside

Confident, eye-catching and striking, the Golf is a truly modern hatchback: unmistakably Golf, but with innovative twists. The exterior has evolved to include a leaner front grille and narrow LED headlights for a clean, contemporary look, with an imposing bumper that sits lower to the ground for a more dynamic look and responsive performance. Inside, the focus is on design, function, comfort and personal choice, with technology that's nothing short of revolutionary.

A pioneer in every sense, offering new levels of efficiency, unprecedented performance and higher safety standards. More technologically advanced, more exciting and more desirable
