Exterior touches include a special “Magic Morning” paint job with a golden shimmer, exclusive “Madrid” 19-inch alloy wheels, matt chrome mirror caps and a badge on the B-pillars showing an engraved laurel wreath with the number “40”.
The VW Golf Edition was developed especially for China and is the first Golf of the latest generation to feature wood inlays in the interior. The extensively customized interior is dominated by the two-tone leather upholstery mixing bright “St. Tropez” with “Black” hues. The center panels up to the headrests are done in “St. Tropez” with diamond-shaped stitching, with the seams carrying a brown hue in contrast to the bright “St. Tropez” color. The side and outside surfaces of the front sports seats are covered with black leather, with brown leather piping in “Sevilla” forming the interface between the bright “St. Tropez” and the “Black” surfaces.
The three-seat rear bench is designed in the same style as the front sports seats, with the two outside seating surfaces in the rear giving the impression of exclusive individual seats. The wood inlays in the door trim panels and in the dashboard on the passenger’s side contrast with the high-gloss piano black decor of the center console, the instrument surrounds and the trims around the air vents.
Finally, the floor mats adopt the diamond pattern of the seats, while the door sill plates are equipped with ambience lighting. Although VW didn’t say whether the Golf Edition study will be built, it looks pretty much like a production car.
