Hedgehogs are the common roadkill of Europe. The poor little bastards have the unfortunate habit of rolling into a prickly ball instead of running from danger — hardly a match for an oncoming car.
It's extremely cute, and a smart way to promote the new Golf's various safety features.
And in racially-charged Europe, it's even pro-immigrant! Because those cute little guys they show in close-up are actually African hedgehogs. I know, I used to have one.
