Golf Life anything but ordinary

Born to stand out and ‘filled with life’, the latest generation of Volkswagen Golf is packed with a host of exciting features and the latest technology to help break out of your routine and gear up for the next adventure.

With it’s bold design shape and ‘perfected proportions’ the Golf 8 takes style and class to a whole new level in a fantastic package, with national automotive publication Drive giving the sporty number the credit it deserves through its 2023 Car of the Year Best Small Car award thanks in part to its ‘semi-autonomous driving, unparalleled performance and striking design’, labelling it as an icon made to have fun.

With this in mind, The SE Voice popped down to Mount Gambier’s Barry Maney Volkswagen recently to grab the latest Golf and see if it could “LIV” up to the expectations – and that it did!

The exterior of the eighth generation VW Golf is a nod to the evolutionary styling of the classic hatchback, modernised using the latest technology enhancements and styling of the Volkswagen range.

Dynamic front bumper styling and eye-catching air intake grille are complemented by horizontal lines and sleek LED headlights to enhance the impression of width, while the smooth tailgate lines act in harmony with the Golf’s rear bumper diffuser.

Giving the exterior an additional boost are a range of paint options, from Pure White as pictured to Deep Black Pearl, Dolphin Grey Metallic, Reflex Silver, Atlantic Blue and Pomelo Yellow, there is a colour to suit all style preferences.

Under the bonnet of the VW Golf Life is a 1.4-litre engine with 110kw of power and 250Nm of torque driving the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

On the inside, the Golf Life is equally as impressive, with Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit Pro and 10-inch Discover Pro Navigation System featuring as standard alongside wireless app-connect and phone charging, keyless access, entry and starting system including starter button just some of the latest tech packed into the entry level hatchback.

The intuitive “Innovision Cockpit” enables user s to control many features traditionally found on the dashboard through the on-board touch-screen system, while the manufacturer’s Air Care 3-zone climate control air-conditioning system is also included as standard.

Seating is comfortable for journeys of all lengths, with the comfort front seats including lumbar support while the rear seating includes a centre arm rest.

Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and four USB-C ports also mean you are only one touch away from all your favourite apps and media, while DAB+ radio ensures you’re receiving the crispiest of sound through the quality six speaker + centre speaker audio system.
