We’ve reviewed Golf MK 8 many times, and is one of our favourites. VW’s new IQ.DRIVE is a suite of safety and driver aids, again, something we like a lot.

The wagon version is slightly bigger than the hatch and comes as Golf Wagon and Golf Wagon Life.

The Golf R Wagon should be along early next year.

IQ.DRIVE is a driver support system that does your including parking, and supports during lane changing and accident prevention. It is meant to relieve you of the grind of a long trip, but can be a little intrusive.

IQ.DRIVE includes Travel Assist, a semi-autonomous system that takes care of accelerating, braking and lane centering.

IQ.Drive drive includes:

  • Travel Assist
  • Front Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Monitoring
  • Adaptive cruise control (ACC)
  • Lane Assist
  • Oncoming vehicle braking when turning
  • Driver Fatigue Detection
  • Side Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Rear View Camera (RVC)
  • Park Assist
  • Parking distance sensors, front & rear
  • Manoeuvre braking, front & rear
  • Tyre Pressure Loss Indicator

Golf Wagon Life adds Emergency Assist and Exit warning system.
