The new VW Golf GTI

Description

"The iconic design of the updated Golf has even more charisma with a number of new detailed solutions. The team led by Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen Head of Design, redesigned the bumpers and, together with engineers, conceptualised new headlights (halogen and LED), new LED tail lights and new wheels. The exterior design of the Golf, which has been systematically developed over a period of more than 40 years, has been consciously advanced to a new evolutionary level. That is because the success of the Golf - along with its technical concept and all-round qualities - has always been based on a design that is considered unmistakable and extends beyond class boundaries. This has made the Golf one of the world's few compact vehicles that does not necessarily reflect the financial resources of its owner. This makes the Golf - the updated version included - the essence of Volkswagen. At the front, it is the alliance of the radiator grille and headlights in particular that has taken the style of the original to a new level of perfection. The lower chrome strip of the radiator grille is continued to the left and right as a chrome element (GTI: Chrome/red) which extends through the LED daytime running lights and into the full-LED headlights. The LED headlights in the new Golf, included as standard or optional depending on the trim line, replace the xenon headlights. The cooling air openings in the lower section of the bumper, which have also been redesigned, emphasise the width of the Volkswagen more than ever. The radiator grilles of the Trendline, Comfortline and Highline trim versions exhibit a louvre-type design; on the GTI and GTD models, and on the Alltrack, it is a honeycomb design. A visual plus in versions with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and/or Front Assist including City Emergency Braking with pedestrian monitoring: in all TDI, TSI, natural gas, GTD and GTI versions, the radar sensor in these systems will no longer be visible in the cooling air intake on the bumper; rather it will be located, hidden, behind the VW badge in the radiator grille."

  • VW GTI Driving Experience in Malaga

    It is the small GTI that enables younger drivers to fulfil a dream, and those who are perhaps not-so-young to rekindle old memories: 42 years after the first Golf GTI made its debut, the new Volkswagen up! GTI is here. The concept and power output of the 85 kW / 115 PS up! GTI are broadly in line with the Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk1 unveiled in 1976 with 81 kW / 110 PS. As a compact bundle of power, the new up! GTI pays tribute to this icon - with crisp dimensions, low weight, a powerful and fuel-efficient engine (WLTP consumption: combined 5.7 to 5.6 l/100 km), greater downforce on the rear axle, sports running gear and the typical insignia of a GTI (including red stripes in the radiator grille, red brake callipers and "clark" tartan seat covers). The 196 km/h sports car brings a new dimension in driving fun to the small car class, thus creating a clear link back to the original compact Golf GTI. One typical GTI element is the finely tuned sports running gear. It gives the car the agility of a go-kart, while simultaneously providing a high level of comfort. The GTI is in addition the first up! to come with a petrol particulate filter. With this catalytic converter system the Volkswagen up! GTI fulfils the new European Euro AG emissions standard. However, the most powerful of all up! models remains affordable. As was the case with the Golf GTI Mk1, so too with the new up! GTI: high performance does not mean high prices. In Germany, home of the inventor of the GTI, the product line's top model is available, for example, for €16,975 - including sports running gear (15 mm lower body), air conditioning, ambient lighting, redesigned 17-inch ("Brands Hatch") alloy wheels and infotainment system.

  • Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Interior Design - Test Drive Vallelunga

    Volkswagen presented a new milestone in the history of the cult compact car to Golf GTI fans: the VW Golf GTI TCR, which has a top speed of 264 km/h and is almost ready for production. The special edition is a road version, derived for the series, of the racing car of the same name and two-time overall winner of the international TCR race series. The successful touring racing car's specs make the new top model a dominating presence: design, power and performance are intrinsic to the pure sports car doctrine. The 2.0 litre turbo engine of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR delivers 213 kW / 290 PS (at 5,000 to 6,800 rpm). The maximum torque of 370 Nm lies between 1,600 and 4,300 rpm. Power is transmitted to the front wheels as standard via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and a locking differential. The factory-set maximum speed is 250 km/h, but this can be increased to 264 km/h as mentioned above by opting to remove the electronic Vmax limiter. Wherever the digital speedometer needle (standard Active Info Display) stops, the newly developed roof edge spoiler ensures the necessary downforce at the rear axle. The new Golf GTI TCR is expected to be launched at the end of 2018. Numerous individual features add to the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR's sporty character and robust look. The new top Golf GTI model has 18-inch "Belvedere" forged wheels from the Wolfsburg plant as standard. the newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels are optionally available. Lurking behind the large alloy wheels are perforated brake discs together with special brake calipers and pads to slow racing fans down just as confidently as the role model on the racetrack.
