When it comes to having the technology you need in the Golf GTI, it’s not hit or miss, it’s hit or hit. We’ve added what’s important to make your unforgettable drive an unforgettable experience.


Unbridled fun. It’s where this hot hatch shines. With a suite of performance features that make every drive a thrill, it’s a road-savvy car for a road-savvy driver.

Design & Interior

Why choose substance over style, when you can have substance and style. The Golf GTI has a smartly refined design that’s suited to you, for you.

Technology is our driving force.

As a passionate driver, you already connect with the road, so in a 2016 Golf GTI, you’ll just connect. Period. It’s our most technologically advanced hot hatch to date, which means you won’t need to log in to log on.

  • Standard rearview camera**
  • Available Park Distance Control**


Connect the things that matter most – with Android AutoTM, Apple CarPlayTM, and MirrorLinkTM. The intuitive interface and voice command actions let you easily search anything online from songs, directions or even your favourite restaurant.

Discover Pro*

Your technological hub. This 8" infotainment touchscreen with proximity sensors puts satellite navigation and music playback all at your fingertips.

Live life in the faster lane.

Good things may come to those who wait, but sporty performance only comes to those who drive. And drive you will. With sporty suspension, sporty shifting, sporty handling, and, well, you get the idea – it’s a ride with an exciting kick.

  • Available DSG® paddle shifters
  • Sport Suspension
  • Driving mode selection

2.0 TSI® 210 HP engine

We’ve engineered the 2.0 TSI® engine to inject fuel precisely for maximum efficiency. The result is maximum performance.

Available Dynamic Chassis

You don’t have to settle for a middle-of-the-road ride when you can opt for a dynamic one. Whether it’s sport, normal, or comfort, the suspension of your GTI allows you to enjoy better steering responsiveness to handle any driving situation.

Cross Differential System (XDS)

Turn the corner on cornering with our standard wheel lock/stabilizer system. If a wheel spins after turning a corner, XDS will apply that wheel’s brake while directing a better grip to it. Sporty never felt so safe.


Get noticed in a moment’s notice.

It doesn’t take much effort to look good in the Golf GTI. With an aesthetic that says “sporty” without saying “flashy,” it’s all the form and substance you want without the showiness you don’t.

  • Available Bi-Xenon headlights
  • Red painted brake calipers


Refinement from the inside out.

The feeling of an unforgettable urban thrill ride starts the moment you sit down. Once you’ve wrapped your head around its upscale interior and refined design, you’ll just have to wrap your hands around the steering wheel to let the excitement wash over you.

  • Leather-wrapped multifunction sport steering wheel
  • Interior ambient lighting

Safety at the edge of your seat.

It doesn’t matter if it’s tight city streets or wide-open freeways. The Golf GTI wasn’t just designed to help get you there quickly – it was designed to help get you there safely too.

  • Available Park Assist*
  • Automatic post-collision braking system
  • Driver and passenger airbags
  • Available Front Assist with autonomous braking*

Available Lane Assist*

Sensors send a vibration to your steering wheel when you drift outside your lane, making sure that when you hit the road, you always stay the course.

Available Adaptive Cruise Control*

Adaptive Cruise Control is genius (if we may say so). It uses sensors to detect to the vehicle ahead, and then automatically adjusts your speed to help keep you at a safe distance without ever needing to adjust the gas or brakes – even in stop-and-go traffic.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Predictive anti-skidding technology gives you the traction you need, before you even know you need it.
