Alexa

Developed by Amazon, the Alexa virtual assistant has been integrated into the new VW Golf to make your life easier behind the wheel. That means drivers will be able to ask Alexa to play music, check the news or weather, as well as control compatible devices via voice control.

Speaking of which, VW says the eighth generation of its popular hatchback benefits from a newly developed voice control system that “responds to natural voice commands and is very easy to operate.” Online-based voice control is one of the functions Golf owners will be able to activate retrospectively.
