    Design and Comfort

    The best of both worlds

    Signature style

    From the signature red line stretching across the front end, to the iconic honeycomb grille with large black air intakes, the look is unmistakably GTI. Slim LED headlights, a strikingly unique bumper and extended rocker panels add even more character to this legendary model. At the rear, the roof spoiler and chrome-plated exhaust pipes help complete the look, while the LED tail light clusters leave a unique signature for those in your rear view. 

    Performance

    Ready, Set, Golf GTI

    Power in perfect balance

    The “EA888” 2.0L turbocharged engine in the Golf GTI has an impressive 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car to 100 km/h in as little as 6.2 seconds.* With a broad power band, you’ll enjoy instant response everywhere from city streets to winding country roads. The standard “VAQ” electronically-controlled limited slip differential helps puts the driver in full control with sure-footed traction even in challenging conditions.
