Golf GTI and GTE have opened for order on Thursday 24 September, following in the successful launch of Golf 8 Life, Style and R-Line. This hugely successful product line will be joined by Golf GTD, opening for order just one month later.
The Golf GTI returns for its eighth generation with all its iconic features such as the Jacara cloth seats with red stitching, a sporty exterior with red accents in the front grille, and a 2.0-litre TSI engine producing 245PS which is available with both a manual and DSG gearbox.
This powerful setup means the Golf GTI accelerates from 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds for the manual and 6.2 seconds for the DSG.
The latest generation of the Golf GTE builds on the success of the previous model, giving customers a sporty drive and style from a plug-in hybrid.
The GTE has a new power unit this time around, which has a combined power output of 245PS – the same as the GTI. Not only does the new performance get the blood pumping, with acceleration from 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds, but the GTE benefits from an all-electric range of 32 miles under WLTP. Exterior and interior styling is similar to the GTI but with blue accents throughout.
The best performance diesel is back in the form of the Golf GTD. It features an all-new 2.0-litre TDI engine, delivering 200PS and 400nm of torque – the same level of torque as the Golf 7.5 R. Technical details will be available when we open for order.
