The 2012 Volkswagen Golf has scored a small equipment upgrade for the new model year.

Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming and phone book display is now standard on all new 2012 Volkswagen Golf Wagon models and on most 2012 Volkswagen Golf hatch models.

The entry-level 77TSI hatch and BlueMotion hatch variants miss out on the factory-fitted Bluetooth system, however, these models can be optioned with Bluetooth phone connectivity, which is added as a dealer-fitted Volkswagen Genuine Accessory.

Volkswagen’s Media Device Interface (USB interface with cable) is also now included on all Golf Comfortline models and above. This includes the 118TSI and 103 TDI hatch and wagon, as well as the GTI, GTD and R hatch models.

The technological upgrade to the Golf comes less than two weeks after the all-new Volkswagen Jetta was launched in Australia.

Priced from $26,490, all models in the Jetta range include full Bluetooth functionality and the Media Device Interface unit as standard.
