Optics as a connection feature
Autically, the Golf Plus suggests a Brucke to Golf VI, which becomes clear especially in the area of the front area with the newly designed headlamps. The Kuhlerbill now has the black lamella look known from the Golf, and the whole appearance acts a little more than previously represented by sharp lines and edges. The jerk lights with LED technology are held in a new, dark rotton. New steel and alloy wheels are available as well as other remaining in the interior. There are also some elements from Golf VI, such as the steering wheel or the instruments.
