Digital Cockpit and Infotainment Features on the 2019 Golf GTI
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI continues to get oodles of acclaim for being an excellent, fun-to-drive machine. It also gets praised for its high-quality interior, which of course includes a selection of the latest automotive tech. But does this include the digital cockpit?
No, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI does not come with a VW Digital Cockpit feature. Some drivers have stated they like the dash this way, as they “prefer clean analog gauges.” The Digital Cockpit is, however, expected to enter the Golf GTI with the next model redesign.
Those who insist on a Digital Cockpit in their VW can find this feature in a multitude of other Volkswagen vehicles. In the Golf family, this includes the Golf R and the e-Golf.
