The Volkswagen Golf GTI is a version of the Golf that has been specifically designed to enhance performance and give you an exciting ride when driving around D’iberville. In fact, the 2015 Golf GTI received the most awards of any car for its model year. To customize your Golf, you can pick a model with two or four doors with or without the Performance Package. After that, you still get to choose among two or three trim levels.
Engine and Performance
All Volkswagen GTI models run on the same 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. In the standard 2.0T models, this engine generates 258 pound-feet of torque and 210 horsepower. Opting for a model with the Performance Package will give you an improved 220 horsepower. The 6-speed manual transmission comes standard with the option to upgrade to the DSG 6-speed automated manual. This combination lets you get up to 60 mph in over a second less than the standard Golf. Either transmission will give you 28 mpg* combined, letting you save money on your drives around town. To add to the performance, all models have a sport-tuned suspension. The Performance Package adds larger brakes and a mechanical limited-slip front differential that is electronically controlled in addition to boosting the GTI’s power.
Comfort, Convenience, and Tech
The GTI is a stylish vehicle with LED fog lights, heated mirrors, a rear spoiler, a sunroof, cloth or leather upholstery, bi-xenon headlights, LED running lights, plus cornering lights. To keep you comfortable and make life more convenient, the GTI comes with cruise control, heated front seats, air-conditioning, a tilting-and-telescoping steering wheel wrapped in leather, 60/40 rear seats that split and fold and have a center pass-through, parking sensors, and forward collision warning. The technology features give you VW Car-Net telematics, iPod integration, satellite radio, Bluetooth audio and phone, and a 5.8-inch touchscreen as standard. You can add navigation, a rearview camera, and Fender premium audio.
