Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Aside from some extra dashboard graphics that indicate the state of charge and battery range, and some blue detailing on the gearlever and door cards, this is a standard Golf interior. That means you get all the usual benefits of a high-quality interior and a user-friendly layout.

You should be able to find a comfortable driving position, too, because there’s a huge range of seat and steering wheel adjustments, including adjustable lumbar support. The fact that the pedals are in line with the steering wheel also helps, plus the driver’s seat is firm yet supportive. The seat controls are precise and easy to reach, too.

Once you’ve got comfortable you’ll notice that all of the switchgear on the dashboard is well placed, including the simple rotary air-con control dials that make it easy to tweak the temperature on the move. Other niceties include ambient lighting and attractive metal effect trim inserts.

Infotainment is taken care of by an 8.0in touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Its graphics are sharp and it has clear menus, but the screen is mounted a little low.
