Golf SV Features & Technology

Get in and feel at home.


Drive beautifully.

Come home. And head out.

Your first encounter with the new Golf SV triggers a familiar feeling: you’ve arrived – even before you get in. A Golf as you have come to know it. And yet, it’s independent, uniquely versatile and bigger than ever before. The dynamic silhouette and elegantly elongated bonnet accentuate its sportier side. And that awakens yet another feeling: the desire to head out on the road.

Tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof

Whether it's sunny or cloudy, you can bask in a vehicle interior flooded in natural light. The optional tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof lets you make the most of sunny days.

LED headlights

Outstanding lighting conditions, even outside the vehicle. The optional LED headlights make the most of the design of the new Golf SV. They are energy-efficient and their spectrum, similar to daylight, is easier on your eyes.

Assistance Systems

Feel relaxed, thanks to technology that thinks with you. Intelligent driver assistance systems in the new Golf SV provide added driving comfort, while helping you to tackle or even avoid critical situations within the limits of the system.

Traffic Jam Assist

Keep calm in tricky situations. Optional Traffic Jam Assist takes the pressure off you when traffic comes to a standstill. Within the limits of the system, it accelerates, brakes and keeps the vehicle in lane.

Emergency Assist

Avoids a rude awakening. “Emergency Assist” intervenes* if you have been inactive for an extended period of time, to take control when you can't.

*Within the limits of the system.

Pedestrian Monitoring

Pedestrian Monitoring is an assistance system that can prevent accidents with pedestrians or reduce the consequences*.

*Within the limits of the system, standard on SE / SE Nav and GT.


Thanks to innovative Infotainment systems, you can now enjoy outstanding entertainment you love from the comfort of your car. You'll also be perfectly connected to a navigation system that helps you discover new hidden corners.

Radio and Navigation

From the perfect start to the day, to an evening serenade. If you love listening to music while driving, and also want to stay well-informed while you're out and about, you’ll be delighted at the range of radio and navigation systems on offer.

Car-Net "Security & Service"

Optional Car-Net "Security & Service" gives you access to important vehicle data. For example the Emergency Call service automatically establishes a connection to the Volkswagen Emergency Call Centre.* Thanks to the crash sensors, your position and vehicle data are automatically forwarded and the emergency services are notified. You can also manually report an accident that you have witnessed by pressing a button on the three-button module.

* Within the limits of the system.

Phone System

Fully connected and completely mobile. The optional "Wireless” and “Advanced” mobile phone interfaces provide broad network coverage and outstanding voice quality, while you keep two hands on the wheel.


The new Golf SV provides ample space for the whole family and plenty of luggage. What's more, thanks to the raised seating position, you also enjoy improved visibility when driving and you can get in and out more conveniently.

Space concept

The interior of the new Golf SV reveals its true spaciousness. Prepare to be astounded by smart solutions that offer outstanding storage space, such as the flexible rear seat bench.

Folding tables

Folds in a flash! From the Comfortline trim onwards, pockets and folding tables on the backs of the front seats make the journey even more comfortable for passengers in the rear.


Personal to you. Fully automatic. The Golf SV adapts itself to you individually. The “Key Memory” feature recognises the key used and is capable of playing your favourite radio channel and adjusting the air conditioning system to your favourite settings.

Variable rear seats

Create as much space as you need. The rear seat bench is not just split-folding – it can also be moved lengthwise and folded.

Storage compartments

Keep important items in sight and to hand. Either in the handy storage compartment on the dash panel or in one of the many other compartments that can be conveniently reached. Particularly handy: the chilled glove compartment for all your travel supplies is part of the standard equipment.

Storage space in the doors

Always in a different place. But everything in its place. The storage compartments in the doors provide space for small items to ensure that you always find everything without having to waste time searching.
