Progressive Steering

Progressive Steering

The standard ESP with electronic differential lock builds up a precise amount of brake pressure to create a sportier, speedier and more targeted response when cornering. The progressive steering function, also fitted as standard, increases the driving dynamics thanks to a more direct steering response. For you, that means an increased level of control and comfort while cornering – which means plenty of smiles in the Golf GTI.

Sports Running Gear

15 mm less. Nothing else is needed to take the handling and driving enjoyment of the Golf GTI to unprecedented heights. The reason? The stiffer tuning of the springs, shock absorbers and anti-roll bars in its standard sports running gear. So, it’s high time to unleash your speed demon.

Safety

Front Assist with City Emergency Braking

Front Assist with City Emergency Braking

The standard Front Assist with City Emergency Braking can warn you in the event of critical situations, support you with braking or even automatically apply the brake in an emergency.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control

ACC Adaptive Cruise Control is standard across the Golf hatch range. It lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. In doing so, it makes life easier for the driver, while reducing the risk of exceeding the speed limit.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Blind Spot Monitoring

The Blind Spot Monitor warns you about vehicles in your blind spot using an LED indicator in the exterior mirror1. If you still attempt to change lanes despite the warning, it starts to flash to attract more attention. The integrated Rear Traffic Alert warns you if any vehicles start to approach when you are reversing out of a parking space. If you fail to respond to its warning, the system can 'prevent' a collision by applying the brake.
