With an iconic history like no other, the new Golf GTI is built to impress. It truly is the benchmark for performance hatches.
An upgraded powerhouse delivers a faster GTI experience.
The Golf GTI now pumps out 169kW of power at 4,700rpm and delivers an impressive maximum torque of 350Nm from only 1,500rpm. Available in 6-speed manual and DSG variants.
The increased performance of the new GTI has been handsomely paired with an updated exterior design and a range of new colours and extras.
Witness some subtle and not-so-subtle features that are guaranteed to get you noticed. Up front, the bumper and lower air intake with more aggressive side louvres complimenting the familiar honeycomb grille and red GTI strip. At the rear sits a bumper and diffuse, while LED lights are standard front and back.
Transferring the GTI’s impressive torque to the ground are the stylish and aggressive 18” Milton Keynes alloy wheels.
The Clark tartan upholstery, smooth black leather and red stitching expected of the GTI are enhanced with decorative inserts, while an 8" infotainment system with App-Connect adorns the center console. All of this is accentuated with the GTI’s famous badging throughout.
The GTI impresses outside and in, with a huge range of advanced technology on board.
Say hello to digital with the Active Info Display. The GTI’s optional Infotainment Package replaces the traditional instruments that sit behind the steering wheel, with a 12.3” high-definition digital screen. This puts everything you need, right in front of you with configurable views for navigation, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.
The GTI’s console features an 8” Discover Media display with media control and App-Connect, plus built-in navigation displaying 2D and 3D (bird's eye) maps.
Whether reversing out of a driveway or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The Rear View Camera displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you, making reversing safer and easier.
Show your smartphone’s screen on your car’s display, with access to selected apps, maps and music via Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.
The Golf GTI really is a car that demands to be driven. No matter what your style, there’s a mode for you – Normal, Sport, Eco, Comfort and Individual. When you want to tear up the open road, Sport mode will provide faster engine response and shift points, plus damping is increased, which reduces movement of the body structure.
With great performance comes great responsibly. So, we’ve fitted the GTI with a raft of safety and driver aids, which all come together to help you not only enjoy the ride but get home safe every time.
Built to assist parking, even in the tightest of spaces. Manoeuvre Braking, front and rear, is designed to avoid or reduce the likelihood of a collision by automatically braking if an obstacle is detected by the parking sensors.
This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates signs of fatigue, such as steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, it warns the driver with an audible alarm, and visually, on the console, recommends the driver take a break.
Using sensors, this genius feature informs you with illuminated symbols on each of your mirrors when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.
The conventional handbrake has been replaced with a button. Plus, with Auto Hold - when your car comes to a stop - the ABS hydraulic unit holds the brakes, allowing you to comfortably take your foot off the pedal.
Before a collision occurs, the front seat belts tense up to put you in the best spot for airbag protection, and if your car starts to slip, the side windows and the sunroof are also automatically closed. *Part of the optional Driver Assistance package.
Fully equipped with a standard seven airbags, including front, front side, front and rear curtain and driver’s knee. Should something go wrong, you’ll be pleased you’re in a Golf GTI.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when a vehicle in front of you gets too close. The system then warns the driver and prepares the car for emergency braking, giving you a better chance of avoiding a collision.
An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function - this clever addition helps achieve optimal handling in all conditions. It applies pressure to the wheel on the inside when cornering to help prevent wheel spin. As a result of this precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and more accurate.
An upgrade on the conventional cruise control system - Adaptive Cruise Control employs the use of a radar sensor that, once you select your speed range, monitors the road ahead for other vehicles and adapts your speed accordingly. This allows you to invariably maintain a safe distance when driving.
