Volkswagen has recently unveiled the 2024 Golf for the global market. It comes with many upgrades, including an improved infotainment system, a sleeker and more streamlined design, and mechanical tweaks for better performance. While it has maintained its signature louvered design, the front bumper now features a larger and narrower air inlet. The updated bumper with a sportier look is also featured on the GTI and GTE models. The body-coloured inserts have been modified and the upper edge of the air intake is now less prominent. Furthermore, the car's headlamps have been slimmed down, contributing to its more sophisticated and attractive appearance. Minor adjustments to the bumper and updated taillight internals are among the other changes made at the back. Here are some more updates on the changes made to the 2024 iteration of the Volkswagen Golf.
