Performance

Raw power. Fully-cooked.

 

Progressive power steering with variable assistance

The variable-ratio steering system provides a quick response to driver input at higher speeds, while making driving easier at lower speeds. Now the only variable you have to think about is which route you want to take home.

Sport suspension

This autobahn-tuned sport suspension helps take handling to a new level. With firm control, the Golf GTI can stay level in corners and help maintain grip while managing to provide a smooth ride.

 

Turbocharged

With the turbocharged 2.0L TSI® engine, performance comes standard along with practicality. It's fast. It's fun. It's a turbocharged win-win. 5

   

Driving Mode Selection

Selectable driving modes allow you to change the way your car performs. You have the power to adjust the drive and how the car responds on the road.

 

Exceptional performance

You'll find plenty of excitement, along with a standard 228-hp engine (achieved with premium fuel), and standard features like a torque-sensing limited-slip differential, and high-performance front and rear brakes with the Golf GTI logo on front calipers.

DCC® adaptive chassis control

With three settings of suspension firmness to choose from, available DCC® adaptively controls the damper valves of the Golf GTI with a refined control algorithm. Taking input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors, DCC® adjusts the optimal damping force, selectively applying force to the four wheels individually.

 

Paddle shifters

These available paddle shifters, located near your fingers on the steering wheel, let you quickly shift the 7-speed DSG® transmission without taking your hands off the wheel. Take the wheel, and take control.

Limited-slip differential (VAQ)

This system monitors performance indicators like vehicle speed, wheel rotation, and lateral G-forces. This can help eliminate understeer by proactively making adjustments to maintain optimum torque balance, transferring up to 100% of torque to one wheel. Now that's power with brainpower.

 

GTI performance brakes

Ventilated disc brakes offer high-performance stopping power. A GTI logo on the front caliper indicates GTI performance brakes.

 

2.0L Turbo

This turbo direct injection engine can be powerful and efficient.7

The turbo technology forces cooled air straight into the engine, helping give you increased performance, 228 hp, and 258 lb-ft of torque (achieved with premium fuel). But you don't have to pop the hood to understand why. A simple step on the gas will do.

Open vehicle notification

Parking information

Design

LED taillights

Sure, they look great, but that's only part of the story. They're also efficient and long-lasting.

LED headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)

These available headlights create bright beams of light to help improve visibility, lasting longer and using less energy than halogen bulbs. The Adaptive Front-lighting System allows the headlights to turn slightly with the direction of your steering at certain speeds. Lighting takes a brilliant turn.
