Design and comfort

The best of both worlds

Sporty charisma

When there is a red line stretching across the front, and the radiator grille features a honeycomb design and black air intakes, there can just be three letters on the badge: GTI. Slim LED headlights, a strikingly unique bumper and extended rocker panels add even more character to this legendary model. At the back, the roof spoiler and chrome-plated exhaust pipes are essential features, while the LED tail light clusters leave a unique signature for those in your wake.


It’s all about performance

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 the challenging conditions.

IQ. Drive

The collection of intelligent safety and driver assistance features can keep you confident on any road. 

Your commute, simplified

Travel Assist** is an advanced driver assistance system combining Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control designed to help keep your vehicle positioned in its lane and at a constant distance from the vehicle ahead of you. It uses a pre-set following distance to automatically make adjustments based on the surrounding traffic, but you’ll need to keep your hands on the steering wheel for the feature to operate.

**Driver assistance feature.  Drivers must continue to perform manual checks and pay full attention to the road and safe driving at all times.  See owner’s manual for important information and feature limitations.
