With its 2.0 l TSI engine, the compact sports car delivers an impressive 245PS that hurtles you from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.4 seconds, enabling you to reach a restricted top speed of 155 mph (where law permits). This amount of power is not just fun on straight roads like motorways, but on windy country roads, too. You'll receive help from the front differential lock, which stabilises your Golf GTI if it slips and helps you to keep control at top speeds. Wherever your journey takes you, you can make it a special one with the powerful engine of the GTI.
Whilst the outside of the GTI is fast paced, the inside offers chilled out lighting and a wide range of features that make your journey comfortable and help you relax. All of the components of the GTI interior are carefully tailored to one another to give the vehicle it's distinctive look. The LED background lighting adds accents of light in all the right places and the cockpit gives you an insight to the digital future. The cockpit can adapt effortlessly to your needs. When combined with the optional “Discover Pro” radio navigation system, the Digital Cockpit Pro can be upgraded to the Innovision Cockpit. This means that both displays, measuring 10 inches (25.4 cm) and 10.25 inches (26.04 cm), are available.
The classic function knobs in the cockpit have largely made way for touch-sensitive surfaces in the Golf GTI. This allows you to control the Climatronic, for example, simply and intuitively using buttons and sliders. Even the leather trim touch multifunction steering wheel can be operated with a simple tap of the finger.
AN EXTERIOR TO SHOUT ABOUT
The new Golf GTI offers a sporty and striking yet elegant appearance. A red line stretches across the front and the radiator grille features a honeycomb design with black air intakes. The three letters GTI can be seen on the badge with slim LED headlights, a distinctive and dynamic bumper and extended side skirts. All of these features add even more expression to the sportiness of the already legendary Golf. At the rear, the LED tail light clusters offer a unique look and the roof spoiler and chrome-plated tail pipes finish this off perfectly.
