An updated Volkswagen Golf has been spotted testing with changes to the interior
Volkswagen has come under fire in recent years with criticism aimed at the firm’s usually class-leading infotainment system. The latest VW Golf in particular has certainly drawn plenty of condemnation for its use of touch-sensitive panels to control the car’s air-conditioning.
VW has already looked to improve the MIB infotainment setup earlier this year by developing a more responsive, user-friendly adaptation of the Golf’s interior technology but now it appears the family hatchback will gain a more significant update inside.

These new spy pictures show Volkswagen is developing an updated Golf, although the changes look restricted to the infotainment.
The 10-inch touchscreen on the dash looks to have doubled in size vertically and the increased size of the screen could result in a change of infotainment design. The touch-sensitive climate controls look like they’ve been retained at the bottom of the screen however.
The current Mk8 Golf features a brace of 10-inch screens as standard, one central touchscreen and one driver’s display. It’s not known whether VW will reserve the larger screen for higher-spec models with the 10-inch screen being retained for entry-level cars or make the new screen standard across the range.
Volkswagen extended its recent infotainment upgrade to its pure-electric cars on the MEB platform and it’s likely this new screen will also be made available to other brands within the VW Group.
