A rearview camera comes standard in the Golf GTI, while its Driver Assistance Package (SE trim) has been updated to include a number of new technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, and Parking Steering Assistant.
The Golf GTI features the innovative new MIB II infotainment system, which supports all three available connected car systems: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. It offers USB and VW-Car Net App-Connect, allowing owners with these systems to access select apps from their smartphones directly through the vehicle’s head unit.
The interior of the Golf GTI offers 93.5 cu-ft of interior space, with more luggage room than even the largest midsize sedan. The versatility of the load space is enhanced by a trunk floor that can be raised or lowered by 3.9 inches, while the 60:40 split backrest can be folded to give an almost flat cargo area that can easily accommodates a full-size bicycle.
The Golf GTI boasts a sporty and stylish exterior design. It features a distinctive C-pillar and roofline framing classic Golf GTI side windows, with a striking new front end and steeply sloped hood leave. The look is further accentuated by the sharper headlight clusters and the bright-red horizontal graphic that runs through the optional Bi-Xenon headlights, as well as by the narrower grille, which leads to a strong character line that travels along the side and all the way back to the taillight clusters. Around back, bright exhaust tips sit on either side of a unique rear diffuser, and a roof spoiler gives the Golf GTI a very sporty look.
You can have the confidence and peace of mind for accident prevention and protection with the advanced safety features in the Golf GTI. The standard Post-Collision Braking System applies the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage. The Golf GTI also includes Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System, which shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard lights if the car is involved in certain types of collisions.
