Volkswagen Golf GTI Prepares For Regional Debut
The eighth generation of the sporty Golf is on its way to the region. Catering to the needs of a growing audience, the all-new Golf GTI is sportier, more dynamic, more intuitive, and more responsive than ever before. It features Volkswagen’s most advanced connectivity and driver assistance systems, and an all-new digital dashboard, representing the biggest technical leap forward in the history of the model.
On the power side, a 2.0 TSI turbocharged engine generating 245 HP resides under the hood. 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.
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 ’70s, a 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”
The GTI will come in two trim-lines with several options, plus an optional Black Style package which includes blacked-out mirrors, grille strips, and headlight features.
The Golf GTI will start to arrive across the region from April 2021.
