But the Golf isn’t just known for its rich heritage, all the models in the Golf family are equipped with a host of innovative features and boast exceptional design. So, it should come as no surprise that the Golf range is a popular choice for families in Singapore.

For the family who needs more space.
You’d love: The Golf SV.
Do you often take your loved ones on long road trips across the border? Or just love heading out together to the malls for your shopping fix? If so, the more space in your car the better! Though all the Golf models have more than enough room, the Golf SV gives you even more. With an overall height of 1,613 mm, all passengers are guaranteed plenty of headroom and legroom so there’s always space to stretch and relax during the next road trip! Plus, the compact MPV also comes with an impressive 500 litres of luggage space with the rear seats up (or 1,520 litres with them down!). So you’ll never have to worry about packing in your suitcases, gym equipment or shopping purchases the next time you take your family out.
For the adventurous family always in the mood for fun.
You’d love: The Golf GTI or Golf R.
Bungee jumping on a family holiday or scuba diving together in crystal clear waters? Why not! If your family is always on-the-go and just loves the thrill of adventure, then you’re definitely going to need a car that can keep up with all that energy! If this sounds just like your family, then you can’t go wrong with the performance focused Golf GTI and Golf R. The Golf GTI and Golf R have been fortified with a higher power output of 230 PS and 290 PS respectively. What’s more, their 2.0-litre turbocharged engines are among the most agile four-cylinder units in the segment, and have been given a power bump of 10 PS compared to their previous generations. Just like you, they’re powered up for fun and all sorts of adventures!
For the all-rounded family.
You’d love: The Golf 1.4.
You belong to a family that does a good mix of everything together. Whether you’re visiting the best new cafés together, shuttling off to a family road trip or simply spending time together on drives to school or work, then the Golf 1.4 is the one for you. The perfect all-rounder, it offers exceptional comfort and space within, and a sleek and dynamic design on the outside. What’s more, it’s equipped with plenty of cool features, not to mention safety systems such as the Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert and Proactive Occupant Protection to keep your loved ones safe on the road. Best of all, its affordability is further supplemented by its exceptional fuel efficiency that stands at an impressive 5.5 litres per 100 km!
For the techy family.
You’d love: All the Golf models with the Discover Pro infotainment system.
If your family just loves getting techy and experimenting with the latest gadgets, then you really can’t go wrong with the Golf. Get everything at your fingertips with the Discover Pro infotainment system on the Golf – a first for the compact class category. Not only does it sport a 9.2 inch touchscreen for easy access to apps and music on-the-go, the Discover Pro system is also gesture controlled where a simple swipe gesture lets you seamlessly scroll through menu items.
Plus, if you’re all too familiar with comments about your antiquated taste in music from your teenagers and constant requests from them to “switch to nicer songs” or a more “happening” radio station while you’re on the road, then you’ll be pleased to note that Golf models fitted with Discover Pro also come with an interface that allows passengers to connect their Apple and Android smartphones to the system through App-Connect. With this, they’ll be able to control audio and video sources effortlessly – allowing them to play backseat DJ and giving you more focus on the road!
For families in search of a more secure ride.

If safety is at the top of your list for your family, then you’re going to want a car that offers maximum protection whenever you’re on the road with your loved ones. If so, you’ll be pleased to note that all Golf models come with the highest standards of safety and have achieved the full 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP safety tests.
