The Golf GTI is the original “hot hatch.” The formula was simple: Take a car that everyone loves and put more performance into it. The result has been ongoing since we saw our first ones in 1982, along with a rich history of original performance and excellence. It remains a favorite among Volkswagen enthusiasts around the world – including right here in the Twin Cities!
It starts with the Golf hatchback. We upped the engine power, chose perfectly-matched transmissions, upholstered the car with red trim and sporty seats, gave you aggressive wheels and tires, and applied the Golf GTI badge to complete the package. However, the Golf GTI truly stands alone. It offers seating for five and at least 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space. You can fold down the rear seats for more space to carry anything you have in mind. Plus, our new infotainment systems feature improved touch screens for audio and navigation options. Combine that with our optional Fender audio system and you will be rocking out on the road in style.
The Golf GTI comes with one potent engine: The newly uprated 228 horsepower 2.0-Liter TSI turbocharged engine. It is quick off the draw, just like every Golf GTI before it. You have a choice between a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed DSG gearbox – both match the performance of the TSI engine perfectly. Not only that, the Golf GTI will return up to 34 MPG on the highway.
Another great feature on the Golf GTI is Car-Net. This is the connected car services suite from Volkswagen that assists if the Golf GTI is involved in an accident, is stolen, or for any other emergencies, and services as needed anytime, every day. All Golf GTI models get the MIB II family of information systems, driven by Car-Net. You can also sync up your smartphone through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for more options to grove along in your Golf GTI.
While the Golf GTI is fun to drive, it is also safe. An advanced safety cage locks and a crash-optimized front end protects its occupants from any collision the Golf GTI might encounter. There are seven active stability-enhancing systems to keep the Golf GTI on the road. Every Golf GTI gets anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution, adaptive airbags all around and an Intelligent Crash Response System. Additional features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist), Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), Blind Spot Monitor w/ Rear Traffic Alert, Park Distance Control (Park Pilot), and Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist).
The Golf GTI is available in only in a four-door hatchback. There is a choice of trims - S and SE.
Pricing for the Golf GTI starts at $28,595.
