Volkswagen has changes to the entire Golf lineup for the 2018 model year.
Every model receives updated front and rear fasciae.
The standard Golf still sports a 170-horsepower I4, and that motor extends to both the SportWagen and Alltrack, as well.
The base S model (for Golf, SportWagen and Alltrack) now comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system and LED taillights.
Move up to the SE for any of those three models, and you get standard autonomous emergency braking, keyless access and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The top-tier SEL adds adaptive cruise control, an auto-dimming mirror, ambient lighting and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Optional premium packages include lane departure warning, automatic high beams, parking sensors, LED headlights and a premium audio system.
The Golf GTI also receives a bump in power, now putting out 220 horsepower no matter the trim.
The Golf R remains the king of the lineup, with 292 horsepower and standard all-wheel drive.
The 2018 Golf family goes on sale this fall.
