Volkswagen is launching a special model of the Golf Plus called the Golf Plus LIFE. This latest version comes with a comprehensive set of features and is priced from €21,200. Available with the 1.4-litre petrol-engine version (59 kW / 80 PS) the car will represent a real advantage for its future customers. Compared to a standard range model with comparable specification the price advantage is at most €3.400.
On the outside, the special model can be identified by the 16-inch alloy wheels and the "LIFE" logo on the wings. Chrome rims on the air inlet grilles, an LED registration plate light, fog lights and tinted rear and side windows are further attributes of the Golf Plus LIFE.
The interior features include Climatronic automatic climate control, a winter pack (including heated front seats and windscreen washer jets), the RCD 310 radio, ParkPilot, the Light and Sight pack and the multifunction Plus display.
Further standard features include high-comfort seats in the Matrixline seat fabric (with storage pockets on the backs of the front seats, height adjustment, lumbar supports and drawers under the front seats) and a central armrest.
The Golf Plus LIFE provides high level of safety: in addition to six airbags and ESC (Electronic Stability Control) a range of driver assistance systems is available as options, such as the XDS electronic differential lock, the "Park Assist" parking assistant and the "Rear Assist" reversing camera.
The Golf Plus LIFE is being offered with seven petrol and six diesel engines. The petrol engines deliver between 59 kW / 80 PS and 90 kW / 122 PS, while the diesels cover a performance range from 77 kW / 105 PS to 103 kW / 140 PS. Also available as an alternative for the Golf Plus LIFE is BlueMotion Technology and the 6 or 7-speed DSG developed by Volkswagen.
