Orders Open for 2017 VW Golf

The revised 2017 VW Golf opens for UK orders tomorrow, bringing with it updated styling with rear LED lights across the range, larger touchscreen infotainment systems and a new 1.5 TSI Evo engine.

The new Golf sees the debut of the turbocharged petrol 1.5 TSI Evo powerplant – a new four-cylinder engine that generates 150 PS and features Active Cylinder Management (ACT). This is accompanied by a BlueMotion version producing 130 PS and featuring a complete engine shut-down function (as in the hybrid Golf GTE). Meanwhile, Volkswagen has strengthened the appeal of the iconic Golf GTI; it now develops 230 PS, or 245 PS in GTI Performance guise. The range-topping Golf R gets more power than ever before, too, now boasting a peak output of 310 PS: enough to carry it from rest to 62 mph in as little as 4.6 seconds.
