The New York International Auto Show is in full swing, and the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Family is making an appearance to showcase new styling, technology and safety features. Guests will be an up close and personal view of the 2018 Golf, 2018 Golf Alltrack, 2018 Golf GTI, 2018 Golf SportWagen and 2018 Golf R. Drivers can get behind the wheel of the revised Golf family this Fall.
It’s important to note that the updated VW e-Golf is actually a 2017 model, not 2018. However, the rest of the updated Golf family will be 2018 models. When it comes to interior and exterior styling, the Golf family has a lot of exciting changes in store.
Changes for the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Lineup
Drivers will notice sharper lines, new bumpers and a new chrome grille as well as standard LED taillights and LED Daytime Running Lights. New trim panels and materials will be available through the Golf cabins, and drivers will have new wheel designs and body colors to choose from as well.
