Volkswagen has released more images of its Golf Mk7 facelift, which was unveiled last November. The new photo set showcases six model versions from the refreshed Typ 5G’s 2017 lineup, with the lion’s share of photos being that of the new GTI in both three- and five-door styles.
Also to be seen are the Golf GTD and the Golf 2.0 TDI 150 PS as well as two estate body-style versions, the Variant in its 2.0 TDI and GTD forms. Rounding off the list is the Golf 1.5 TSI, a new addition to the range.
The latter is equipped with the automaker’s new 150 PS 1.5 litre EA211 TSI evo turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, with standard-fit Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) variable displacement.
New bits brought along by the refresh include LED daytime running lights as well as full-LED headlights. Full-LED tail lights also find their way on, and is standard fitment across the entire model range
Inside, the reworked Golf gets minor trim and upholstery revisions, but plenty of upgrades in terms of tech. For starters, all available infotainment system options now feature larger screens than before, with screen sizes starting at 6.5 inches for the base unit right up to 9.2 inches found in the range-topping Discover Pro system.
Also available as an option is the 12.3-inch Active Info Display virtual instrument cluster as seen on the B8 Passat. Also trickling down from the Passat is new safety kit, with pedestrian detection being added into the City Emergency Braking function in the car’s Front Assist system.
