Press Release

Volkswagen Golf Plus Life

Volkswagen is launching a highly attractive special model of the Golf Plus: the VW Golf Plus LIFE. This latest model comes with a comprehensive set of features and is thus perfectly tailored to customers' wishes. Prices start from €21,200 for the 1.4-litre petrol-engine version (59 kW / 80 PS). Compared to a standard range model with comparable specification the price advantage is at most €3.400.

With over 850,000 units sold, the Golf Plus has established itself as a successful member of the Golf family. Vehicle body height, flexibility and functionality are defining features of this five-door car. The Golf Plus is particularly popular with customers who appreciate the model's level of comfort. An example: the raised seat position, from which driver and front-seat passenger benefit when getting in and out and which also provides a much clearer overview in traffic.

Flexibility is also a major feature: the rear bench seat, for example, which can be asymmetrically split and folded and slid lengthways by up to 16 centimetres, creates room to transport awkward items. In combination with the front-seat passenger's seatback, which can be folded right down, the interior cargo space can be extended to 2.3 metres in length. Depending on the position of the rear seats, the boot space capacity is adjustable between a minimum of 395 litres and a maximum of 505 litres. If the rear seatbacks are folded right down, up to 1,450 litres of cargo space is available. A payload of up to 637 kilograms is also possible.

With the launch of the special Golf Plus LIFE Volkswagen is now offering a very high specification model that leaves nothing to be desired and simultaneously impresses with its attractive price. Features include Climatronic automatic climate control, a winter pack (including heated front seats and windscreen washer jets), the RCD 310 radio, ParkPilot, the Light and Sight pack and the multifunction Plus display.

Further standard features include high-comfort seats in the 'Matrixline' seat fabric (with storage pockets on the backs of the front seats, height adjustment, lumbar supports and drawers under the front seats) and a central armrest. The multi-function leather steering wheel scores through its ease of use and - together with the leather gearlever knob and handbrake handle - gives the interior a high-class ambience.

Externally this special model can be identified by the 16-inch 'Spokane' alloy wheels and the wording 'LIFE' on the wings. Chrome rims on the air inlet grilles, an LED registration plate light, fog lights and tinted rear and side windows are further attributes of the Volkswagen Golf Plus LIFE.

The Volkswagen Golf Plus LIFE is being offered with seven petrol and six diesel engines. The petrol engines deliver between 59 kW / 80 PS and 90 kW / 122 PS, while the diesels cover a performance range from 77 kW / 105 PS to 103 kW / 140 PS. Also available as an alternative for the VW Golf Plus LIFE is BlueMotion Technology and the 6 or 7-speed DSG developed by Volkswagen.

As an add-on for the Golf Plus LIFE Volkswagen is also offering the LIFE Plus pack. This enhances the specification with extra features including an electric slide-and-tilt panoramic glass sunroof and the choice of either 'Orlando' or 'Seattle' 17-inch alloy wheels. The price advantage for the Plus pack is €950.

The Volkswagen Golf Plus LIFE provides an extremely high level of comfort and safety: in addition to six airbags and ESC (Electronic Stability Control) a range of driver assistance systems is available as options, such as the XDS electronic differential lock, the 'Park Assist' parking assistant and the 'Rear Assist' reversing camera.
