Volkswagen have paid great attention to the interior design of the Golf Plus.

How It Looks - Interior

Volkswagen have paid great attention to the interior design of the Golf Plus. The cabin exudes a high level of build quality and the dashboard is ergonomically laid out and is pleasingly plain. The switchgear is sturdy yet elegant and the Sport model features 'siempre' cloth upholstery which should prove durable in the long term.

Infotainment

The Golf Plus is sold with Volkswagen-designed stereo equipment. This is integrated with the vehicle and is ergonomically designed for ease, safety of operation and maximum security. On S models, the in-car entertainment system has, as standard, six speakers; but this system can be upgraded to ten as an option. The ten-speaker system is standard on SE models and above.

All Golf's have a dash-mounted CD player as standard. This can be upgraded to an armrest-mounted six-disc CD auto-changer for a small premium.
