Order books in the U.K open today for the new MK8 Golf. Prices start at £23,875 for the 1.5 TSI 130 PS, 6-speed manual Golf Life.
Tech is really at the heart of this new Golf.
It is the first VW to use intelligence information from Car2x. This means that it can get signals from the traffic infrastructure and other vehicles up to 800 metres away.
Arriving in the next coming months will be a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI petrol engine, a eTSI 48V mild-hybrid 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol engines.
A GTE, GTI, GTD and R will follow later this year.
