The changes might not seem like much on the outside, but with a slew of new engines, new outputs and a whole bunch of tech, it's ready to hit the market running.
The changes to the 2018 Golf's exterior are minimal. A new rear bumper here, a new set of LED taillights there.
The front fascia's been tweaked a bit, as well.
The Golf's mid-cycle refresh arrives in Europe for the 2017 model year, but it won't be coming to the US until the following model year, 2018.
In Europe, the refreshed Golf comes with two new 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engines.
Output varies from 148 horsepower in the standard Golf to 227-242 in the GTI, depending on trim choice.
The real meat and potatoes of the refresh takes place inside the car.
The traditional gauge cluster has been replaced with Active Info Display, which is a configurable 12.3-inch screen.
The infotainment screens have grown across the lineup, as well, ranging from 6.5 inches all the way up to a new 9.2-inch unit.
The largest infotainment screen offers gesture control for the first time.
The 2018 Golf has no firm timetable for US arrival just yet, and pricing is still TBD.
