Exterior & Interior

LED Headlight

The highlight for your Golf GTE: LED Headlights

The LED Plus headlights’ dynamic design is standard on every Golf GTE, with striking LED tail light clusters that leave a lasting impression.

Exterior ambient lighting

A showcase of light projections

When unlocking your Golf GTE, the lights on the headlights, tail light clusters, and radiator grille will illuminate as you approach. The door handle recesses will also light up, and a welcoming light will be projected onto the ground from the exterior mirror.


Guaranteed to turn heads

Nothing shapes the side view of a vehicle better than the wheels. Fitted as standard with the dynamic 18″ Bakersfield Alloy wheels.

Performance Seating

Styling in GTE signature blue

The front premium sport seats feature durable fabric in Scale Paper design. The hallmark blue accents of the GTE design can be seen on both the leather steering wheel and complementary textile floor mats.

Interior ambient lighting

Switch up the mood

Immerse the interior of your Golf GTE in your favourite colour. With indirect light, the ambient lighting creates an atmosphere unique to you.

Connectivity & Infotainment

Wireless Mobile Connectivity

Stay connected on the road

Wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto automatically connects to your Golf GTE, making every experience feel more connected and effortless. Plus, wireless charging (Qi enabled devices) will keep your smartphone charged up while on the go.

Infotainment System

Everything adapts to you

The Golf GTE will be the envy of all your friends with the all‑new digital cockpit. The centre 10″ Discover Media Navigation Infotainment System is your access point to customise everything you need in your vehicle. The Active Info Display ‘Pro’ (10.25″ configurable driver display) brings an expanded range of innovative technology and state-of-the-art connectivity. Both screens link into the GTE’s built-in Satelite Navigation system, ensuring you are getting where you need to go.

Head-up Display

Information in your line of sight

Stay informed while keeping your eyes on the road with the head-up display in your Golf GTE. Part of the windscreen serves as a projection surface, showing your speed, driver assist system messages, or navigation instructions. The display remains legible even with direct sunlight and can be easily turned off whenever desired.


IQ.Drive – Our assist systems

Front Assist monitors the traffic situation in front of your car, warning you when you get too close and even applying the brakes to help avoid collision.

The Lane Assist system is like a friendly co-driver. If it senses your car is drifting out of your driving lane, it gently counter-steers the vehicle back in line.

The Golf GTE is also equipped with assist systems like Travel Assist.

Technology & Performance

Charging station and electric motor range

Get further than you think with one battery charge

Easily charge your electric motor’s battery using a standard domestic socket. It takes approximately 7 hours & 30 minutes at 1.7 kW to fully charge the battery, providing an electric range of 60km. Alternatively, with an optional wall box or public charging station the battery can be fully charged in under 4 hours at 3.6 kW.

Combined power (boost)

The “boost” for a package of power

Experience full power using the Boost function, where the electric motor works with the TSI direct injection petrol engine, giving you short-term access to extra torque.

Switch by wire gearbox

No more gear changes, but no less fun

Experience uninterrupted driving pleasure with the Switch by wire gearbox and its new compact selector lever to choose your desired driving mode. Seamlessly shift gears, and allows for more interior design freedom.
