Never equalled, the iconic Golf GTI gets better with each generation.
There is only one GTI. But now in its seventh generation. Planned in 1976 as a small special edition of 5,000 copies, it developed into a surprise success in a very short time. And has remained true to itself in every detail. This means that it accelerates even faster and is even more fun. At the same time, with its characteristic honeycomb front, the sweeping side skirts and the distinctive "GTI" lettering, everything is actually as always: simply unique. The optional 18-inch "Austin" alloy wheels, an interpretation of the legendary "Denver" GTI rims, unmistakably show where it comes from. And the 2.0-liter TSI engine with 169 kW (230 PS), which is where it wants to go.
It's nice when you can choose the co-pilot yourself.
In your Volkswagen, you determine what's going on. The standard "Composition Media" radio is available for this purpose: with suitable speakers, easy-to-use technology and many connection options. Or you can use one of the two navigation systems that hardly leave anything to be desired in terms of multimedia. Enjoy it when the company depends entirely on you.
Don't drive without internet anymore.
The Internet can be useful in many areas of life - including in the car. For example, keep an eye on traffic with current data. In this way, you can plan or change your route in advance. The optional Car-Net "Guide & Inform" ¹ online services offer even more.
So that not only you, but also the tones are perfect.
Can you imagine that music in the car sounds better than from your hi-fi system? The optionally available DYNAUDIO Excite sound system is tailored to the acoustics of the vehicle and provides you with a sound that you would not expect - even if you are used to high-end sound.
With both hands on the wheel you can make calls more safely.
Stay available even while driving, if you want. With the optionally available "Comfort" and "Premium" telephone interfaces, you can keep both hands on the wheel and keep traffic under control.
Driving profile selection
Your Volkswagen adapts to your driving style.
Do you prefer to drive economically or sportily? Or do you value comfort more? With the optional driving profile selection, you can adapt the driving characteristics of the car to your driving style and the road and traffic situation.
Automatic distance control ACC & environment observation system Front Assist
When the streets are full, you stay calm.
Do you sometimes want an assistant to keep an eye on the traffic ahead? With the optional ACC automatic distance control and the Front Assist environment monitoring system including city emergency braking function included in the package, you are more relaxed on the road.
Park Assist "Park Assist"
Just leave the parking to your car.
Even if you are one of the few who maneuver into the tightest of spaces with great serenity in front of an audience, the optional "Park Assist" park steering assistant will still inspire you. Because the system not only recognizes suitable parking spaces, it also steers for you.
Blind spot sensor with parking assistant
This is how your car helps when changing lanes and pulling out of a parking space.
The optional blind spot sensor warns you of vehicles in your blind spot while driving within the system limits. And the parking lot assistant monitors the side areas of your car when reversing out of a parking space within the limits of the system.
