The Golf GTI has been an icon among sports cars for almost 45 years. Now, this compact model is available with enhanced driving dynamics and an even larger number of connectivity solutions and digital features. Like its predecessors, the new Golf GTI is equipped with Volkswagen’s time-tested front-wheel-drive system. Combining maximum dynamism and maximum comfort, agile driving, unmatchable design, and smooth ergonomics create the embodiment of the GTI.

The new Golf GTI has also become lower, more elongated, and dynamic. The new exterior of the vehicle features an array of traditional and new GTI features. The infamous GTI strip has been redefined by a parallel LED crossbar and LED high taillights. The GTI has a turbocharged engine that generates 180 kW (245 HP) in terms of performance and the agility and sportiness has been perfected with the new, networked Vehicle Dynamics Manager.

A new GTI graphics layout for the standard Digital Cockpit has been developed with an active info display and it can be opened using the new View button on the steering wheel. App-Connect and wireless charging are also standard.

Victor Dalmau, Managing Director of Volkswagen Middle East, said: “The GTI has been an iconic car since it was first launched back in the 70’s, synonym of sporty driving pleasure with the highest level of technology and performance. This 8th generation brings it to the next level, in terms of driving dynamics, design, technology, and digitalization”

He also added: “The Golf has a very loyal and strong following in the Middle East, so we are confident our customers will like it as much as we do.”

The GTI will come in two trim-lines with several options, plus an optional Black Style package which includes blacked mirrors, grill strips, and headlight features.
