The Volkswagen Golf GTI: Sporty Convenience

Design

LED headlights and taillights, sport bumpers, and clean lines all bring incredible style to the Golf GTI. The LED lights are made to last, using less energy than halogen light bulbs. The available LED headlights are made with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) to allow the light to turn with your car so you can see whatever lies ahead.

Inside the Golf GTI, seats are available in stylish Clark Plaid, stitched with red accents to bring color to the sleek, black interior. The front bucket seats make a comfortable, race-inspired view as you drive the vehicle. There is also additional lighting inside the Golf GTI. The door panels continue the theme of accented red with a thin line of red interior lighting framing the door.  

Performance

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is a compact car that’s big on control with sport suspension, which gives a smooth ride on any road. Its 228-horsepower, standard turbocharged 2.0L TSI® engine gives satisfaction and speed in seconds. The 7-speed DSG® transmission adds to the easy ride, and with paddle shifters located on the steering wheel, an even simpler transition to the next shift is created.

Progressive power steering with variable assistance makes every speed feel smooth and comfortable. The vehicle’s distinct driving modes allow you to pick what kind of performance you want from your Golf GTI at any given moment.

The Golf GTI is a well-balanced machine. Available DCC® adaptive chassis control chooses which wheels to give the most force to, depending on what it senses is required for the road at hand. Limited-slip differential (VAQ) maintains torque balance by making adjustments to support your driving.

Technology

You will always know how to get to your desired destination with the Golf GTI’s available 8” glass display and touchscreen navigation system. Additionally, the available keyless activation to your engine with a push-button start allows an easy jump-start to getting you on the road. The Fender® Premium Audio System, complete with 400 watts and 8 speakers allows you to bring your favorite music along with you on your new favorite ride.

Volkswagen’s VW Car-Net® App-Connect allows you to connect your smartphone to either Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, or MirrorLink® to bring your phone’s app to the screen of your Golf GTI. VW Car-Net® mobile app can send you notifications that will benefit both you and your vehicle. The sunroof rain notification, for example, will inform you if the weather forecasts rain and your sunroof was left open, to prevent damage from occurring.  

There’s no need to rush to your car to make sure you remembered to lock it, or to wonder where you parked your car. Simply check the VW Car-Net® mobile app, and it can tell you what you want to know. If your Golf GTI’s doors are left unlocked, the app will notify you, and you can even lock them remotely from the app on your phone. VW Car-Net® Security & Service can even call for assistance if needed.

Other available safety features include:

  • Available Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist)
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Lane Assist
