2018 Golf

Fun, flexible, and downright funky, the 2018 Golf matches turbocharged performance with mix-and-match versatility, plus a host of engineering and style refinements. So load it up, buckle up, and let the good times roll. This is one thoroughly modern hatch that’s easy to love – and easy on the wallet.



Available App-Connect. Access select apps on your dash and control music, mapping, messaging, and more hands-free using voice commands. Just plug your compatible smartphone into App-Connect. Simple and easy to use, with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ or MirrorLink®.

Discover Media With Navigation System

Available 8" Discover Media touchscreen with satellite navigation. Sync multiple compatible phones, and stay on course with satellite navigation. The available Discover Media centre is your personal touchscreen infotainment system, complete with CD player and 2 SD card slots.

Fender Audio System

Available Fender® Premium Audio System. In the 2018 Golf, fun comes standard. And if you really want to dial it up, go for the available 400-watt Fender® Premium Audio System, with 8 speakers and a subwoofer optimally positioned to deliver concert-quality sound to go.

Rearview Camera

Standard rearview camera. In the 2018 Golf, safe backups aren’t just an option – you get a rearview camera as standard equipment. So even if you missed something in your mirrors or when turning your head, you get a clear picture of what’s behind.

Bluetooth Mobile Phone Connectivity

Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity. Just configure your smartphone with Bluetooth® technology, and enjoy the ease and convenience of making and taking calls cord-free, hands-free, and carefree.

60/40 Seats

60/40 split folding rear seats with centre pass-through. Configure your space for more passengers, cargo space, or both. The 60/40 split folding rear seats add up to 100% versatility, easily folding down for up to 1.49 m³ of space. And the centre pass-through makes carrying long items like hockey sticks and lumber a breeze.

Front Centre Armrest

Front centre armrest with storage tray. You and your front passenger can share the comfort of a front centre armrest. And all your gizmos and gadgets, like cellphone, pens, charging cords and more, can stay comfortably nestled and organized in the storage compartment below.

Adjustable Cargo Floor

Adjustable cargo floor. When it comes to carrying additional gear, this cargo floor offers a little bit more. You can easily adjust it 9 centimetres up or down, for additional capacity where you need it most.

1.8 TSI Engine

1.8 TSI engine. Stingy on gas, but never on performance, this lightweight, 1.8L turbocharged engine is capable of cranking out the power to deliver a drive that’s not only spirited and sporty, but also surprisingly fuel efficient.

Cross Differential System

Cross Differential System (XDS). The secret behind the 2018 Golf’s sportier, quicker, and more accurate cornering is its Cross Differential System (XDS), anticipating inside wheel spin and actively directing power to the outside wheel.

Automatic or Manual Transmission

Available automatic or manual transmission. Go for the 5-speed manual stick, or the seamless, efficient shifting of the 6-speed automatic with Tiptronic®. Either way you slice it, your choice of transmission delivers an intimate connection with choice performance.

Power Driver's Seat

Available 12-way power driver’s seat. If agile cornering and nimble handling turn your crank, you know the thrill of finding that sweet spot. With a multitude of driver seating positions, you have infinitely more ways to enjoy it.

Climatronic Dual-Zone Climate Control

Available Climatronic® dual-zone electronic climate control. End the duel over who gets to choose their preferred temperature, with Climatronic® dual-zone electronic climate control. Both driver and front passenger can select their own individual comfort levels.

Heated Seats

Available heated front seats and washer nozzles. Take the chill out of those frigid wintry drives. With heated front seats and washer nozzles, you’ll enjoy a clear line of sight ahead, and a toasty warm behind.

Panoramic Sunroof

Available panoramic sunroof. Open up to fun, and take a drive on the sunny side of the street. The available panoramic sunroof tilts, slides, and opens wide. So everyone can take in the scenic skies above, and a blast of fresh air all around.

Blind Spot Detection

Available Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic Alert. Here’s a thoroughly modern feature befitting a modern hatch. Radar and sonar trigger driver alerts, and brakes are automatically applied if obstacles or vehicles are detected when you’re changing lanes or backing up.

Front Assist

Front Assist – Autonomous Emergency Braking. If you’re gaining on the vehicle in front of you too quickly, or a pedestrian suddenly appears, a built-in traffic monitor can help reduce your stopping distance and automatically apply the brakes at speeds under 30 km/h.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Assist. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically regulates your speed and distance from vehicles ahead without you having to touch the gas or brake pedals. And Lane Assist alerts you if you’re drifting out of your lane, keeping you on the straight and narrow.

Park Assist

Available Park Assist. Just take your hands off the wheel, and Park Assist steers your Golf in and out of even those tricky parallel parking spots. Hat trick, or hatch trick? Either way, it’s a little bit of magic.

Park Distance Control

Available Park Distance Control. Using ultrasonic sensors, Park Distance Control automatically engages when you’re in reverse, alerting you with audible signals when there’s something up to 1.6 metres behind you.

Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2018 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2018 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. The navigation system depends upon signals from the GPS network and is designed to provide you with suggested routes only. Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of Volkswagen Canada. Please rely on your individual judgment in determining whether or not to follow a suggested navigation route.
