Often copied, never equalled; there has only ever been one Golf GTI. Now in its seventh generation, the Golf GTI remains true to itself, still retaining its iconic detail – the ‘Black’ honeycomb radiator and front air intake grilles, side skirts and gleaming chrome ‘GTI’ badge – but now with a modern twist. Like the traditional red stripe that now extends into the Bi-xenon headlights, 18 inch ‘Austin’ alloy wheels, ‘Red’ brake calipers, lowered sports suspension, unique ‘GTI’ badging and classic ‘Jacara Red’ tartan upholstery that shows unmistakably where it began.
Not to mention faster acceleration, unprecedented power and exhilarating performance with the powerful 2.0 litre TSI 220 PS engine. And if that’s not enough, there is the anticipation of 350 Nm of torque. Specify the optional GTI Performance pack, and you gain up to 230 PS of power to get your adrenalin pumping even more.
The Golf GTD is the most powerful ever, raising the benchmark to a whole new level. And that’s not all. It’s more fuel efficient and emits less emissions than ever before, which means you can enjoy outstanding performance and be environmentally conscious. What better way to have fun? The phenomenal 185 PS engine accelerates from 0-62mph in just 7.5 seconds and returning an astounding 67.3mpg on the Combined fuel cycle*, it’s also the most fuel efficient ever. The eye-catching exterior of the GTD is built to impress; the ‘GTD’ styling pack – uniquely shaped front and rear bumpers and ‘Black’ honeycomb front air intake and radiator grille hint at its sporting prowess, while illuminated door sill protectors, lowered sports suspension and a prominent rear spoiler reinforce its capability.
The positive stance of the 18 inch ‘Nogaro’ alloy wheels, chrome twin exhaust tailpipe and a rear diffuser confirm its race-inspired pedigree. Inside the GTD, hot Golf styling includes classic ‘Jacara Grey’ tartan sports seats, ‘GTD’ instrument cluster, ‘Cyclone’ decorative inserts, stainless steel pedals and stylish grey stitching on the leather trimmed multifunction steering wheel and gear knob gaiter. While climate control – 2Zone electronic air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, ambient lighting and a Composition Media system, ensures total luxury. Why would you ever want to get out? It doesn’t get cooler than this.
Inspired by the performance and technology of motorsport, the Golf R delivers all the exhilaration,excitement and dynamic handlingyou could ask for. Then again, what more would you expect from the fastest ever Golf to date? The adrenalin buzz begins as soon as you see the 18 inch ‘Cadiz’ alloy wheels, ‘Black’ brake calipers with ‘R’ logo, ‘R’ sports suspension, ‘Black’ rear diffuser and twin oval chrome exhaust tailpipes to the left and right. The distinctive ‘R’ styling pack with specially shaped front and rear bumpers and side sills and unique ‘R’ radiator grille with matt-chrome strip hint at the power within. ‘R’ badging, and matt-chrome door mirrors add to the thrill, while Bi-xenon headlights with static cornering function, automatic range adjustment and double ‘U-shaped’ LED daytime running lights complete the stunning visual impact.
Inside, front sports seats with embroidered ‘R’ logo on the head restraints provide support and comfort while cornering, and the leather trimmed three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with ‘R’ logo gives the feel of a real sports performer. ‘Race’ cloth upholstery seat centre section with grey ‘Alcantara’ side bolsters, ‘Carbon-touch’ decorative inserts on the dash and door panels and ‘Gloss Black’ decorative inserts in the centre console add style and luxury. Finally, the unique ‘R’ gear lever knob, ‘R’ instrument cluster with blue needles and ‘R’ design key reinforce the fact that this is no ordinary Golf. Prepare to be amazed.
