The Golf GTI is the one of the best hot hatches on the market, offering all the great features of the standard model and more, including a considerable turn of pace. This agile vehicle is a great all-rounder and is available in three and five-door body styles.
The GTI is adorned with a red-striped black honeycomb radiator grille, 18-inch alloy wheels (each with red brake callipers), chrome exhaust pipes (positioned left and right) and distinctive GTI badging. The vehicle comes with a crisp Pure White paint finish, with other colour schemes such as Tornado Red, Night Blue and Deep Black available as options. Whichever finish you select, it will be complemented by body-coloured fixtures such as bumpers, door handles and door mirrors. The latter are power-adjustable, folding and heated and come with integrated indicator lights. Further illumination includes bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, LED tail lights and a high-mounted brake light.
A five-person cabin is upholstered in red Jacara cloth. Front-row occupants get to enjoy height-adjustable and lumbar-supporting sports seats, and the driver further benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic three-spoke steering wheel. The latter is leather-trimmed and decorated with the GTI emblem. Also included are a model-specific instrument cluster and a range of stainless steel elements, such as clutch, brake and accelerator.
A 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 161kW, 350Nm of torque and 0-100km/h in a little under seven seconds (0-80km/h in approximately 5.6 seconds). The GTI returns as much as 6.4 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 148g/km. Power-assisted steering, speed-limiting cruise control, brake energy recovery and automatic start/stop system are all included.
A 6.5-inch colour touchscreen display, a CD player, an FM/AM radio, a Discover Navigation System and Bluetooth connectivity are among the vehicle’s range of infotainment features. For ease of use, controls are mounted on the car’s steering wheel.
The GTI has been endorsed by Euro NCAP with a five-star rating. Standard safety features include front and rear parking sensors, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, multiple airbags, ISOFIX child-seat preparation, childproof locks and three-point seatbelts.
