Volkswagen Golf Mk.8
The new Mk.8 Volkswagen Golf is finally here and we’re pleased to announce that we’ve got them coming this September and October on our short-term car lease fleet.
Volkswagen have really gone to town on the new Mk.8 Golf, giving it a fantastic facelift, yet still ensuring it has the same distinctive looks of what we’re use to. On top of this they have pushed the technology side with lots of new features as standard.
Yes, even we had to Google what Car-to-X technology was in the Cocoon Vehicles office. Its effectively an on-board system that will eventualy allow the vehicle to communicate with the road infrastructure and other vehicles around it.
Imagine a “Network” of cars, all being able to tell each other what it plans to do, where its heading and how close they are together, this is all done in milliseconds to help prevent accidents.
The Car2X system should really help in providing drivers and the vehicle itself the information require dto prevent accidents and improve road awareness.
The Golf has been given a new design, the looks of a Golf remain, but the bumpers have been given some filler and a much cleaner design is noticeable. Narrow LED headlights and a new front grille ensures you notice the difference between the Mk.7.1 and the Mk.8.
Driver assistance should be at the top of the list and its understood that the adaptive cruise control will be standard on most models starting with the Life derivative.
VW have also introduced the e-TSI engine that brings in Mild Hybrid technology and a small lithium-ion battery to help with coasting and low speeds. This in-turn reduces emissions and fuel economy.
The Innovision Cockpit takes all of the infotainment options and settings and displays them on a 10-inch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can also be integrated into the system by plugging your device into the USB port.
