The undisputed champion hatch. The new Golf GTI.
Athletic, feisty, distinctive. For four decades the Golf GTI has been an icon; the car that other cars have aspired to be. The beating heart of the Golf range is the Golf GTI, a car with little to prove, but much to offer.
This powerful engine will excite you.
The engine of the Golf GTI offers maximum performance. You can reach a top speed of 248 km/h with a whopping 169 kW (229 HP). It takes just 6.4 seconds to go from 0-100 km/h.
Choose the sportiest connection between the car and road.
The sports running gear of the Golf GTI is included as standard and offers even more driving fun with excellent handling, making a sporty driving style particularly comfortable. To allow you to experience pure driving pleasure, the body of the Golf GTI has been dropped by 15 millimetres with shock absorbers and stabilisers. You will feel the result: handling is noticeably improved, for example on curves, and you get an especially direct driving feel, particularly if you have a sporty driving style. This allows you to get the most out of the power the car offers and still stay in control.
See what’s behind you, in front of you.
Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes are always handy. The Rear View Camera installed at the back of the car, displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you. Coupled with parking sensors, reversing is now safer and easier.
Convenience is key.
Searching for your keys are now a thing of the past. You can start the engine of your Golf at the press of the starter button, while leaving your keys in your bag. Proximity sensors detect your key within 1.5 metres of the car, meaning it can automatically unlock as you pull the door handle. Keyless entry and start (KESSY).
Small gestures make all the difference.
Small gestures can achieve a lot in everyday life, but also when it comes to gesture control in your car. This function makes it even more convenient to operate the optional Discover Pro system.
It enables you to easily move around in the main menu and various submenus using a swipe gesture to switch pages. For example, with just a single hand movement, you can switch radio station.
Comfort. Timeless Style.
Sports seats came as standard in the first Golf GTI back in 1976 and featured a red chequered pattern. Today, the fabric seat covers are called Clark covers, are also chequered and are embellished with red decorative stitching.
The front seats have evolved to become height-adjustable premium sports seats which are equipped with lumbar support and seat-back pockets. In keeping with the original, you can still be certain that you are sitting in a vehicle which is synonymous with quality, sportiness and suitability for everyday use.
It’s all right in front of your eyes.
One of the new additions is the eye-catching Active Info Display. This high-definition digital display uses a 12.3” screen with configurable views. Choose your view from navigation, infotainment, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.
High tech is a no-brainer.
Now standard across the Golf range is the 8 inch touchscreen colour display. This glass-covered display is high resolution and intuitively connects you to the infotainment system.
The optional mobile phone interface not only has a hands-free system, but also a wireless charging function. Simply place your phone in the multimedia console and charge away - Easy!
The apps from your phone in your car.
Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen.
