Golf V highlights

For the very best cornering, the Golf V comes up trumps with the newly developed four-link rear suspension – and it will keep on surprising you with many more highlights.

Dynamism: Your Golf V handles tight curves beautifully and barely tilts – thanks to the four-link rear suspension. It also reacts to uneven roads with greater accuracy – and there’s one more thing you’ll sense: pure driving pleasure.

Driving comfort: The optimised McPherson front axle in your Volkswagen ensures a comfortable and safe drive. Separately mounted shock absorbers and springs absorb any bumps and impacts. Plus, the generous vehicle interior provides you with plenty of room and comfort, even on longer journeys.

Infotainment: Thanks to the radio navigation system with dynamic route guidance via RDS TMC, you not only have a constant view of the road, but you can also listen to your favourite song along the way. The CD changer for up to six CDs guarantees hours of entertainment.

Safety: The new electromechanical power steering in your car is adaptive, recognises the driving situation and, if necessary, can support your steering. Along with the stable vehicle body, up to eight airbags, ABS and an Electronic Stabilisation Programme turn your Golf V into your own personal bodyguard.

Comfort features: Each of our special features gives your Golf V a personal touch. Create even more space with a load-through hatch in the backrest or make yourself extra comfortable with heated seats.

Technical features: The “Plus” multi-function display provides you with important information during your journey. The “Light and Vision” Package makes sure you can see everything going on around you, and the rain sensor will automatically activate your wipers the second it feels the first drop.

Design: A wide track, large wheels and the sporty details on the vehicle body give your Golf a dynamic look. But beauty alone is not enough: numerous design elements also make your journey more comfortable. An example: the lane change assist warning lamp.
