The Golf GTE is a sporty and stylish variant of the award-winning hatchback, and comes with plug-in hybrid technology enabling even greater fuel efficiency than normal. Cheap-to-run and high-performing, the GTE has everything the standard Golf possesses and more.
The GTE’s design adds an extra dimension to the well-defined Golf profile. The fascia is distinguished by a smart black grille bearing the distinctive ‘GTE’ legend. A body-coloured bumper brings a sporty look, and lightweight and durable 18-inch Marseille alloy wheels attract attention to the car’s profile. A range of LED lighting includes eye-catching C-shaped daytime running lights.
A five-seater cabin is upholstered in a distinctive blue ‘tartan’ design, with front sports seats providing optimal support and adjustability. Standard features include an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electric front windows and a heated rear windscreen. A 272-litre boot features an unobtrusive lip for easy loading, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats offer extra flexibility, enabling a cargo capacity of as much as 1,162 litres.
A 1.4-litre petrol engine is paired with six-speed dual-clutch transmission, producing 201bhp, 250Nm of torque, 0-60mph in less than eight seconds and a top speed of 135mph. This responsive and potent unit delivers a GTI-like performance, combined with e-Golf sustainability and economy. It returns as much as 166mpg and 39g/km of CO2. In electric mode alone you can travel up to 31 miles. Harnessing petrol and electric power, the GTE is capable of a 580-mile range.
A 6.5-inch colour touchscreen and an eight-speaker sound system (including DAB radio and a CD player), along with Bluetooth, USB and SD connectivity are included as standard. The GTE comes with a five-star rating from Euro NCAP. A range of safety features include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Driver Alert System, child-proof doors, ISOFIX mountings and whiplash-minimising head restraints.
