New Golf GTI to Make Debut in Geneva

The new Volkswagen Golf GTI is set to debut at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show following on the premier of the Golf GTI concept late last year at the Paris Motor Show.

For the first time the Golf GTI will be available in two power levels, the standard 162kW or the GTI performance with 169kW and front axle differential lock. Both GTI versions will develop 350Nm.

 The sporty character of the Golf GTI is reflected in its traditional red-painted brake callipers, two chrome tailpipes and a sport suspension. The exterior of the compact sports car also scores with 17-inch “Brooklyn” GTI wheels and 225/45 size tyres, special side sills, a diffuser and smoked LED rear lights (including LED licence plate illumination).

Visual highlights in the interior are top sport seats in tartan pattern (“Clark”), a black roofliner and red ambience lighting. The cars also offers sporty GTI features such as a sport steering wheel, GTI gear shift grip and instrument cluster, special trim strips and stainless steel pedals and foot support.

The new Golf GTI may not be the most exciting performance hatch out there but we hope it will offer the same level of all round performance that we have come to expect from it. Judging from the general feedback on the new Golf VII, we think it will do just that.

The new Golf GTI will be introduced in the second half of the year in South Africa.
