Golf GTI: Sporty, dynamic, intuitive
The Golf GTI has always defined the term “hot hatch”, which embodies a classic formula: refinement, style, power and playful performance. The new and eighth generation Golf GTI has returned with new technologies and design features that continue the tradition of affordable performance it has built since its debut. It’s sportier, more dynamic, more intuitive and more responsive than ever. Packed with groundbreaking technology, it features Volkswagen’s most advanced connectivity and driver assistance systems and an all-new digital dashboard that represents the biggest technical leap forward in the model’s history. Confident, bold and eye-catching – the GTI is a truly modern hatchback with innovative twists. The GTI has a turbo engine that produces 245 hp. The car has a new networked driving dynamics manager that intelligently controls the electromechanical chassis systems and thus guarantees a new increase in performance – this makes the new Golf GTI the perfect vehicle with front-wheel drive and offers excellent overall performance at an even higher level.
