A rear apron and roof edge spoiler emphasize the 2014 Volkswagen MKVII Golf’s already remarkable character and sporty overall appearance

Various aerodynamic components give the Golf an even more powerful and dynamic look and contribute to sporty driving responses. The front spoiler for the new Golf promises reduced lift at the front axle and optimized aerodynamic properties. The air inlet in the middle also visually underscores the car’s sporting appeal. A rear apron and roof edge spoiler emphasize the Golf’s already remarkable character and sporty overall appearance.

The side sills give the car an even more dynamic look, making the car appear to sit lower to the ground. A guard strip for the tailgate in chrome look and the tapered tailpipe trim in black/chrome impressively accentuate the car’s styling as well.

The distinctive 17-inch dual-spoke “Blade” alloy wheels with their machine-polished surfaces satisfy wishes for innovative styling.

The new 18-inch “Rotary” alloy wheels with their 12-spoke design and Anthracite colour also contribute to a more dynamic exterior appearance. The distinctive 17-inch dual-spoke “Blade” alloy wheels with their machine-polished surfaces satisfy wishes for innovative styling. For maximum music enjoyment in the Golf, Volkswagen Accessories has developed a plug-and-play sound system.

The Volkswagen MKVII Golf system consists of an amplifier with an integrated digital sound processor, a total sinusoidal output power of 300 Watt (480 Watt audio output) and a powerful subwoofer

The system consists of an amplifier with an integrated digital sound processor, a total sinusoidal output power of 300 Watt (480 Watt audio output) and a powerful subwoofer. Along with optimal sound quality, the system also impresses with vehicle-specific and driver-specific sound setups, which are tuned to individual vehicle features. Except for the additional subwoofer, the system utilizes existing vehicle loudspeakers and can be quickly installed in the spare wheel well by plug-and-play.

“Micro II” bicycle carrier which fits in the spare wheel well. If two bicycles need to be packed for a day trip or vacation, the driver simply removes the folding bicycle carrier from the spare wheel well, opens it and mounts it onto the car’s towbar with a quick connect fitting

Developers at Volkswagen Accessories have come up with an especially practical and innovative solution for transporting bicycles with the Golf: the folding “Micro II” bicycle carrier which fits in the spare wheel well. If two bicycles need to be packed for a day trip or vacation, the driver simply removes the folding bicycle carrier from the spare wheel well, opens it and mounts it onto the car’s towbar with a quick connect fitting. The folding mechanism enables trouble-free opening of the tailgate, even with bicycles mounted, and an anti-theft feature protects the transported goods. When it is not being used, the bicycle carrier can simply be folded down and stowed back in the spare wheel well.

Golf Lifestyle Collection

Volkswagen Accessories has over 40 lifestyle products that match the new Golf. Colors emphasized in apparel and accessories are blue, white and grey, but the Wolfsburg plant silhouette is featured as a styling element on some of the items. The collection takes up the “Think Blue” concept, for example, in the design of its reversible bodywarmer that is filled with insulation made of recycled PET bottles and a coffee set. The three-colored bodywarmer is available for women and men.

One watch, three faces: the time display of the “NEOLOG OS Golf watch” can be changed according to mood and wishes at the press of a button – digital, as a grouped set and by the cube pips principle

A fashion classic, reinterpreted: the sweatshirt jacket in duffle style with belt, insulated Jersey quilted hood, front zipper and four decorative toggle buttons with Golf badge. For women, the sweatshirt jacket is available in blue, and for men in Anthracite. One watch, three faces: the time display of the “NEOLOG OS Golf watch” can be changed according to mood and wishes at the press of a button – digital, as a grouped set and by the cube pips principle. The watch is waterproof to 5 atmospheres pressure.

One bag, many possibilities: The zipper converts the multifunctional travel bag into individual bags of two different sizes. The carrying straps are designed in the style of a car safety-belt.
