Like the other electric Volkswagen the blue theme continues around the Volkswagen roundel on the bonnet and chrome strip below the bonnet lip. Adding to the stylish look are 18" 'Serron' Alloy wheels and body coloured bumpers which make the car look lower adding to the sporty look.
A true sports performer provides maximum support for those inside, and here the new Golf GTE excels.
Front sports seats provide lateral support on tight bends, stylishly finished in 'Jacara Blue' upholstery or optional black 'Vienna' leather, both adorned with blue contrast stitching. This theme is continued on the gear lever gaiter and threespoke steering wheel. The leather trimmed multifunction steering wheel provides excellent grip and continues the sports styling with aluminiumlook inserts and the GTE logo, enhanced by brushed stainless steel pedals. All combine to give that unmistakeable GTE feel.
