The 2017 Volkswagen Golf: Technology Features




Volkswagen has a penchant for integrating easy-to-use, purposeful features that never feel excessive or overbearing—and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf technology is one such example. Behind the wheel of the 2017 VW Golf, you’ll feel right at home, as well as connected to the world around you. Features like smartphone integration, traffic and weather updates, and available push-button start simplify every journey, while keeping driving enjoyment in perspective.

VW Car-Net Connected Car Suite

Wherever the road takes you, VW Car-Net Connected Car Suite serves as a co-pilot. App-Connect turns your vehicle’s infotainment system into an extension of your compatible Apple or Android smartphone, letting you stream music, access contacts, view maps, and more via the central touchscreen. On the road, Guide & Inform keeps you abreast of traffic and weather conditions, while Security & Service stands ready to call for help in an emergency.

Composition Media Touchscreen Sound System

The 2017 Golf offers hours of fun with an eight-speaker Composition Media sound system. Using a proximity sensor, the 6.5-inch color display senses your approaching hand and activates the pop-up menu—a feature not found on rivals like the 2017 Hyundai Accent. On Lowell, MA roads, you can also use voice control to access your music without taking your hands off the wheel. Equipped with a CD player, AM/FM/HD Radio, SD card reader, and a USB port, the audio system supports multiple music mediums.

SiriusXM Satellite Radio

Each 2017 Golf comes standard with a three-month All Access trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio. This means you can browse over 175 commercial-free channels online or via the SiriusXM app from anywhere. Enjoy access to real-time sports updates, entertainment talk, local and world news, and kids’ programs, as well as traffic and weather notifications. At the end of your trial, you can easily extend your services via the VW website.

Keyless Access with Push-Button Start

Long gone are the days of fumbling for your keys in the rain, or struggling to unlock your door with an armful of groceries. When you opt for keyless access, you’ll get a car key that’s fitted with a special chip. Your Golf will sense the chip when it’s within range, and automatically unlock/lock the doors for you. Push-button start lets you enter the cockpit, press the brake pedal, rev the engine with the push of a button, and hit the road.
