Volkswagen’s wonderful GTi has pace and response few cars can match. And linked to exceptional roadholding, these features are only the beginning of what this hot car has to offer!
Any driving enthusiast will be left with a smile after piloting the racy Volkswagen GTi. The blend of roadholding, engine response and sheer driving pleasure is delightful. The engine specs are well worth a look to wet the appetite. Equipped with a 2.0 litre, four cylinder, 16 valve, DOHC, FSI direct injected, turbo charged power plant, the GTI generates an imposing list of stats: 147kW at 5100 rpm, and 280 Nm concentrated where it counts – between 1800 – 5000rpm. 0 – 100 in 6.9 seconds. All of which translate into pure GTI driving excitement.
Glance inside the Volkswagen GTi and the sporty overtones are all there in Germany’s most excellent trend. The Golf GTI combines space, styling, technology and character to create an irresistible interior that oozes comfort and luxury. A controlled use of brushed aluminium highlighting crates a fantastic contrast to the sports signature leather seats.
Handling is exceptional. The Volkswagen GTi hugs the road and flies round tight corners like a bullmastiff chasing a tomcat. Acceleration is free and invigorating, and the speed can be piled on in an aggressive and authoritarian manner.
Quick cars need the backing of quality safety features, and Volkswagen have ensured the Golf GTi has what it takes in this area as well. The small hatch is equipped with a full compliment of active and passive safety features. The very best of Electronic Stabiliity Program (ESP), Anti-lock Braking, Brake assist and Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution make sure that reining in the stellar racing qualities are kept in check superbly. Seven airbags, which even includes a driver’s knee airbag, provide excellent protection for driver and passengers.
The car has nice clean lines and it sits squattly down on spoked 17-inch rims. The sports tuned suspension keeps the Golf GTi low to the ground and at the ready to tackle the most demanding drive you are capable of throwing its way. The Golf exterior is curvaceous and aerodynamic and the headlights are elegant and aggressive. The Bently-like grille gives the Volkswagen an imposing on-road presence that when seen in the rear-vision mirror is like being chased by a Rottweiler. Of course the twin chrome exhaust pipes finish off the neatly tucked rearend of the GTi nicely and provide a visual statement of the GTi’s full potential.
You can of course load your racy Volkswagen GTi with very high-end luxury items if you so desire. Satellite Navigation, Blue Tooth communications are available.
