The new Golf. Online
Volkswagen puts intuition into production.
Typical of “Think New”.

Intuitive Usability

The 2017 Golf offers a new user experience, digital and individual, 
for greater driving pleasure with every mile you travel.


The digital cockpit of a new generation

With the update for the 2017 model year the Golf has been given an innovative digital interface: an entirely new user experience for the driver. The Active Info Display and the Discover Pro infotainment system with gesture control and voice control introduce 
the control interface of the future to the compact class.

Conventional buttons and controls are a thing of the past with Discover Pro; all haptic operation is performed via the touchscreen and five capacitive softkeys on the left side 
of the new system. Proximity sensors adapt the display as soon as your hand comes close. Gesture control can be used in various different menus. All it takes is a swipe gesture to move the horizontally arranged menu items to the left or right, allowing the driver to scroll through the main menu, for instance to change radio stations, change playlist, or to browse through albums in the media library. Added safety, the driver’s eyes stay on the road.

The driver can configure the home screen himself. For example, he can place the navigation function in a larger field on the left. He can then populate two fields on the right with functions that are particularly important to him – such as radio stations, media content or phone contacts.

Although the new Golf offers unprecedented equipment and functions, its handling 
remains intuitive and simple – as is typical of Volkswagen.


he Active Info Display is a fully digital instrument cluster. With its 12.3-inch high-resolution 
display it offers numerous interactive functions and a wide range of customisation options.


The Discover Pro is the top-of-the-range model 
of the new generation of infotainment equipment 
in the Golf, featuring a 9.2-inch high-resolution display and gesture control. All of the Golf’s 
systems have been upgraded with larger screens, even the standard version has a 6.5-inch screen.
Active Info Display

A great experience behind the wheel: all of the Golf’s instruments are displayed virtually 
on the optional 12.3-inch colour screen. The navigation information can be displayed in 2D or 3D. Its resolution of 1,440 x 540 pixels enables extremely accurate, detailed display.

There are five different information profiles, in which the kind of information and graphics displayed change. Classic, Consumption & Range, Efficiency, Performance & Driver Assistance and Navigation.

Information on driving, navigation and assistance functions can also be integrated into the graphic areas of the speedometer and rev counter as required, for instance a compass 
on the speedometer, and the Active Info Display can also display telephone contact images or CD covers.
