It’s Hot, Baby

Smart climate? No problem. We recommend a casual mix of the latest swimwear and fall fashions. Or the new Golf GTI. Or both.

Dressed so fine and looking so pretty

And now for the Golf 8 GTI, or rather its intelligent climate control system, which features five predefined temperature settings stored within the Smart Climate menu. Controlled by voice commands. Just say, “I’m cold!” and the Air Care Climatronic system will turn up the temperature on the driver or front passenger side. Say, “I’m hot!” and the temperature is turned down. In response to the command “clear view”, the system de-mists the windscreen. Other commands are “warm feet” and “cool feet”, though you can also make specific requests such as, “Make it four degrees warmer.” One more thing: the system even recognizes whether a command has been issued from the driver or passenger side. Otherwise things could get very uncomfortable.

Quite spontaneously.
