Volkswagen raises the bar in the sporty compact class with the new Golf GTI which is now available for order in Europe.

07 Sep 2020 | International News : Germany

Following the sales launch of the new Golf GTE, the next flagship model of the Golf family is now also available for order throughout Europe - the new Golf GTI.

Like its predecessors, the latest version of the Golf GTI has also been equipped with groundbreaking technical features. The turbocharged engine now develops 241bhp and 370Nm of torque.

The agility and sportiness has been perfected with the new, networked Vehicle Dynamics Manager. This higher-level control system centrally coordinates all electromechanical running gear functions.

Dynamic Chassis Control running gear with variable shock absorbers is optionally available so that GTI drivers can choose their own very individual setup using the standard driving profile selection. The result is an even more precise driving experience.

The digital displays of the standard Digital Cockpit and infotainment system start up as soon as the doors are opened. Discover Media - including streaming and internet - is installed as standard, while the 10-inch Discover Pro system is optionally available. The new standard background lighting bathes the displays and many other illuminated interior areas in a spectrum of 30 freely configurable colours.

Typical GTI details are also preserved in the new generation. The classic checked pattern has been given a new, fresh look, and now covers the newly developed sports seats.

The new Golf no longer has an ignition lock - this has been replaced by an Engine Start/Stop button, which is notable in that after the doors are opened, it pulses red until the engine is started.

The three-spoke sports steering wheel of old has been transformed into a new multifunction leather sports steering wheel with touch controls and an optionally integrated Travel Assist button to permit assisted driving of the Golf up to speeds of 210km/h.

The design of the new Golf GTI also matches its added driving dynamics. At the front, the wide air intakes, low-positioned standard LED head lights and unmistakable signature light on the radiator grille are particularly distinctive. The latter is illuminated for the first time by a narrow LED strip, which flows on the left and right into the head light modules. At the rear, the roof spoiler, diffuser and two round tailpipes located at the outer sides are striking distinguishing features of the sporty GTI variant.
