40 years of Golf: best-seller, trend-setter and icon
Volkswagen is celebrating the 40th birthday of the most successful European car of all time: the Golf. To this very day, more than 30 million vehicles of the best-seller have been sold. From day one, the Golf has reflected technological progress.
Whether turbo engine, direct-injection engine, electric or plug-in hybrid drive system; whether ABS, ESC, XDS or 4MOTION; whether Adaptive Cruise Control, City Emergency Braking, trailer stabilisation or Automatic Post-Collision Braking System; whether automatic air conditioning, Dynaudio sound system, touchscreen with proximity sensor or LED headlights; whether Trendline, Comfortline, Highline, GTI, GTD or GTE – it was always the Golf through which the most important technologies and trends of our time were democratised.
