The Legend takes another leap.
Take what you have always loved about SA's premium hatchback, then add a turbo four-cylinder engine, improved gearbox and head-turning new looks. And that's just for starters.
The new Golf combines its legendary drivability, reliability and affordability, with modern features that have Millennials (the fussiest generation) gasping in admiration.
More goosebumps for its drivers
The new Golf GTI comes standard with key features including keyless locking and starting system, Composition Media radio, App-Connect, Cruise Control, Park Distance Control and mobile phone interface with inductive charging.
With Volkswagen’s advanced IQ.DRIVE technologies at its core, it’s safer, bolder, smarter and more intuitive, making this the most advanced Golf GTI ever.
It’s not just the powerful engine that gets your heart racing, the new Golf GTI is kitted with an optional Harman Kardon sound system featuring a 12-channel amplifier with 480W output from eight speakers, one centre speaker and a subwoofer.
The power to connect
Stay connected in comfort
The classic function knobs have made way for the Innovision cockpit with a 10.25-inch touch-sensitive screen that boasts gesture control capability and lets you control everything from music to the Climatronic air-conditioning with both touch and swipe actions. The multifunction leather steering wheel’s capacitive buttons obey your every command with a simple tap of the finger. This great vehicle allows you to sit back in your sporty “Vienna” leather seats to revel in the freedom the GTI inspires.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) lets you keep a safe following distance from the traffic ahead. It works together with the radar-controlled Front Assist traffic monitoring system to automatically maintain the following distance you set from the car in front of you. If the car ahead slows down, or if another car joins your lane, the system slows down your vehicle to match the speed of the traffic ahead.
Pro Touchscreen Feature
Modern mechanics: it's like magic
The optional 9.2" Discover Pro touchscreen features Gesture Control, which senses your hand movements and reacts before you touch. Swipe through menu options, tracks and browse radio stations with a swish of a finger. So kewl!
