Volkswagen will recall 56,000 of its bestselling Golf models to fix software problems that affect the infotainment system and reversing camera, the German company said on Tuesday.

The fix affects vehicles of the most recent Golf 8 series that were made until July 2020, a spokesman said. He added the recall was not mandatory but was a "voluntary service measure".

Volkswagen had to postpone the launch of the Golf 8 due to software problems last year.
