The updated Volkswagen Golf SV is now available in Singapore.
This model is more spacious than its hatchback sibling, thanks to its longer overall length (+93mm), wheelbase (+50mm) and height (+121mm).
The latest Golf SV boasts more features than the previous model. Available infotainment units include the Composition Media and Discover Pro systems, which have 8-inch and 9.2-inch screens respectively.
Volkswagen has also enhanced the SV’s overall safety, with new features such as a Blind Spot Sensor and Rear Traffic Alert, which can autonomously brake the car to prevent a collision or at least reduce the impact.
The SV continues to offer relatively good practicality in its segment, with a 500 litre boot that expands to 1520 litres with the rear seats folded.
Both models are powered by the same turbocharged 1.4-litre 4-cylinder engine that delivers 123hp and 200Nm of torque.
Volkswagen claims the Golf SV has a combined consumption figure of 18.2km/L and a 0-100km/h time of 9.9 seconds.
The Golf SV is available in Comfortline and Highline variants, with prices starting from $125,400 (including COE).
