Slim LED headlights, a strikingly dynamic bumper and extended side skirts add even more expression to the sportiness of this legendary vehicle. At the back, the roof spoiler and chrome-plated tail pipes are essential features, while the LED tail light clusters round off the unique appearance.
The package also includes innovative dynamic turn signals that use an animated strip of lights to show which way you are turning.
Real Highlights In Bad Weather
Fog, heavy snowfall or rain? Not a problem with the LED front fog lights that come in the new 5-honeycomb design and are built into the bumper.
Turn them on quickly and the world will look pretty different. And your Golf GTI will look even more striking.
When fitted with exterior background lighting, your new Golf GTI will welcome you before you’ve even climbed aboard: Operate your remote control key or start to approach the vehicle and the headlights and tail lights will light up.
The door handle recesses and red strip in the radiator grille will also light up and your new Golf GTI will welcome you with light projected out of the exterior mirrors onto the floor.
The GTI is your entry pass to the world of digital services at Volkswagen: You will have access to a number of We Connect services – with full connectivity from the outset on request. Once you have completed the one-off activation process and signed in with your Volkswagen ID, it is incredibly easy to use our free, innovative online services.
We Connect1 makes everyday life more enjoyable and also more comfortable. It provides you with access to all important vehicle information and offers useful and convenient features with Breakdown Call, Online Anti-Theft Alarm or Service Scheduling. You can also use your smartphone as a mobile key to open and start your new Golf without having to search for your key2,3.
And thanks to the We Connect app4 for your smartphone, you can keep an eye on the most important information about your new Golf even when on the go. For example, you can check the remaining range or whether all doors and windows are closed.
The whole world of Volkswagen digital services takes connectivity in the new Golf to a higher level. The optional We Connect Plus1 delivers additional smart technologies such as Media Streaming and Internet Radio and also enables a smartphone to be used as a remote control for a variety of vehicle functions.
This also includes intelligent navigation that provides you with real-time2 updates to current traffic information, route changes or warnings about traffic disruptions. Intelligent Online Route Calculation allows you to react flexibly to changed conditions and always take the best possible route. The Online Map Update ensures that your maps are always up-to-date. Meanwhile, the latest information about filling station prices and available spaces in car parks or public parking lots means that you will arrive feeling more relaxed.

Furthermore, you must also conclude a separate We Connect or We Connect Plus contract online with Volkswagen AG. For We Connect Plus, you have 90 days after vehicle handover to register the vehicle at www.portal.volkswagen-we.com to be able to use the services for the full period of validity free of charge.
2. The terms and conditions for using Streaming & Internet are available here: https://www.volkswagen.de/de/konnektivitaet-und-mobilitaetsdienste/konnektivitaet/we-connect/etertainment.html
Amazon Alexa1 is now on board your Volkswagen, too. This means that you can use Alexa in exactly the same way you do at home. As such, Alexa can still help you to schedule appointments or draw up a shopping list while you are out and about. Can't get that one song out of your head? Then just ask Alexa to play the title over Amazon Music. Simply download Alexa as a free in-car app via the shop in your Golf.
1. Amazon, Alexa and all associated logos and motion marks are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its subsidiaries. The Alexa function shown depends on smart home technology; you need an Amazon user account to use Alexa. Volkswagen AG enables customers to access Alexa in vehicles; the cloud-based Alexa services are offered by Amazon. To be able to use the Alexa in-car app in a Volkswagen, you will also need a Volkswagen ID and a We Connect contract that includes the voice control option. You will be responsible for any data connection costs. The Alexa in-car app is only available/usable in vehicles with the country-specific equipment for United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and France. Your Volkswagen dealership can tell you whether your vehicle meets this requirement. The aforementioned countries are currently the only countries supported by the Alexa in-car app as Amazon Alexa is only available for these countries.
The App-Connect function is a convenient way to use apps and content.1 Music, messages, maps or audio books are transferred to the Infotainment system display, enabling you to use them in your direct line of vision. Three interfaces can be used to connect your smartphone: Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM by Google and MirrorLink®. Particularly handy: use of Apple CarPlayTM with the wireless connection option for the “Discover Media” and “Discover Pro” navigation systems.
1. App-Connect is compatible with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® technologies. In order to prevent distraction, only certified apps can be started whilst the vehicle is in motion. In this context, please note that some apps are not available for each of these three options and the availability of this technology can vary from country to country. Information on smartphone compatibility can be found at www.volkswagen.de/mobiltelefon and in addition for Apple CarPlay™ at https://www.apple.com/de/ios/carplay/, for Android Auto™ at https://www.android.com/intl/de_de/auto/ and for MirrorLink® at https://mirrorlink.com
Climb in, place your smartphone on the inductive charging station, and more than just its battery will start recharging – you’ll also be connected to your Golf without any wires.
Thanks to the built-in “Comfort” hands-free feature, you can then call friends, family or business partners – comfortably, conveniently and for as long as you like.
Volkswagen driver assistance safety technology keeping you safe and sound.
The standard hazard warning function lends a hand with useful information, including warnings about construction work or rescue vehicles. Car2X technology uses WiFi to communicate (pWLAN).
The ACC adaptive cruise control with Car2X technology supports you with a range of handy information and can actively intervene in the event of an emergency (within the limits of the system). Like at the end of a traffic jam, for instance. With permanent data exchange via WiFi (pWLAN)*.
* There must be other vehicles capable of communicating via WLANp within range.
The “Travel Assist” provides you with an extremely useful driving assistant in your vehicle. After all, at the press of a button it delivers a high level of driving comfort* by supporting you in monotonous and tiring driving situations:
* Within the limits of the system. The driver must be prepared at all times to override the assist system and is in no way released from their responsibility to drive the vehicle with caution
Predictive cruise control
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps you to maintain a set maximum speed* as well as the distance to the vehicle ahead. In conjunction with the navigation system, the ACC has been expanded to include predictive cruise control and cornering assist. This helps you to avoid breaking the speed limit because it is able to adopt official speed limits.** What’s more, the system uses journey data from the navigation system to adapt the vehicle’s speed to corners, junctions (turns) and roundabouts.**
* Up to 130 mph.
** Within the limits of the system.
Countless customisation options give you the chance to design your very own personal Golf GTI.
Proper musical accompaniment for your journeys. The sound specialists from Harman Kardon have developed an optional sound system tailored specifically to the Golf GTI. This means balanced highs and lows, along with crystal clear basses. What creates this undreamed-of sound experience?
The GTI look is visible in every corner of the interior. While the premium sport seats in the front are covered in durable fabric in "Jacara" design, the hallmark red accents of the GTI design are not only visible on the leather steering wheel and gear lever gaiter* but also on the front textile floor mats that come in a complementary colour scheme.
Fancy an extra dose of elegance? The optional high-quality “Vienna” leather equipment is smooth, creating a chic, premium feel. The black perforated natural material covers the central seat panels and inner seat bolsters on the front premium sport seats – making the hallmark GTI red stitching look particularly impressive.
* Only for vehicles with a manual gearbox
Being able to check all the most important information while also keeping an eye on the road: this is the main advantage of the optional head-up display in your Golf. Part of the windscreen becomes a projection area that can display your speed, messages from your driver assist systems or navigation instructions. The projection itself is still clearly legible, even when light is shining directly onto the windscreen. And you can switch off the display at any time if you no longer need it.
Leather trim multifunction steering wheel with touch controls
The classic function knobs in the cockpit have largely made way for touch-sensitive surfaces in the Golf GTI. This allows you to control the Climatronic, for example, simply and intuitively using buttons and sliders. Even the leather trim touch multifunction steering wheel can be operated with a simple tap of the finger. In combination with the intelligent menu navigation you have access to lots of functions. Haptic feedback through gentle vibration confirms every entry.
Immerse the interior of your Golf GTI in your favourite colour. Background lighting uses indirect lighting to create a pleasant atmosphere:
Simply telling your Golf GTI when you want to listen to a different radio station, make a phone call, turn down the air conditioning system or take a different route: this is now possible with the voice control and without any special commands.
Your Golf GTI will understand you even better with the online voice control function from We Connect Plus: this function has a better understanding of natural speech and is even more intuitive.
All of the components inside the GTI are carefully tailored to one another to give the vehicle its distinctively sporty look. This starts with the stainless steel pedals and extends to the decorative trims and hallmark stitching all the way to the black headliner. The LED background lighting adds accents of light in all the right places. And you’ll also notice straight away that the digital future has arrived in the cockpit. These features are dominated by high-resolution displays and the majority of functions, like the radio, air conditioning system and lighting, can be operated using touch-sensitive surfaces and sliders. Let’s touch.
With its 2.0 l TSI engine, the compact sports car delivers an impressive 245PS that hurtles you from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.4 seconds – and enables you to reach a restricted top speed of 155 mph (where law permits). This amount of power is not just fun on straight roads like motorways, but on windy country roads, too. Here, you’ll also receive a helping hand from the front differential lock, which stabilises your Golf GTI if it slips and helps you to keep control in the process. Wherever you are heading, you can make the most of this powerful engine.
DSG - Dual Clutch GearboxClimb in and hit the gas: the DSG dual clutch gearbox with its brand new smaller selector lever guarantees fun behind the wheel without any interruptions. That’s because you can change seamlessly between the gears and even reduce your fuel consumption. Pressing on the selector lever enables you to easily select your chosen driving mode, which is then activated via the electrically connected shift-by-wire gearbox. Particularly handy in a traffic jam: When combined with the Travel Assist feature, the system can help you to pull away and brake.
Front Differential Lock (VAQ)
Do you love narrow bends? Then the Golf GTI is the ideal car for you. That's because it offers you features like a front differential lock (VAQ), that stabilises your Golf GTI if it starts to slip. This gives you better control, even if you have a sporty driving style.
Volkswagen has the one of the widest range of vehicles on the market, so it’s simple for you to find the perfect car for your business.
