Wolfsburg: VW introduced its new Golf sporting advanced connectivity and semi-autonomous capabilities. An optional system steers, accelerates, and brakes the vehicle during highway trips. You can use a smartphone to start or monitor the car. Standard is a digital dashboard with video displays and touchscreens. Amazon’s Alex is integrated, too.
Europeans get several hybrid versions. And twin-dosing diesel technology cuts emissions.
VW says we’ll see the sporting GTI Stateside in 2021. VW hasn’t said whether the ‘standard’ Golf will accompany its hot hatch.
