If you desire a high-performance hatchback, then we're confident you'll love the 2017 Golf GTI. It comes with a technologically-advanced EA888 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection engine, putting out an impressive 210 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. With the available Performance Package, the EA888 produces an extra 10 horsepower for a total of 220. The engine is also extremely compact, illustrated by the way in which the exhaust headers have been integrated directly into the cylinder head. This, along with a turbocharger that can withstand extremely high exhaust temperatures, means the forced-induction system doesn’t require complex fuel enrichments under high load, helping improve both efficiency and longevity.

You can have the utmost peace of mind for safety with the wide array of both passive and active safety systems in the Golf GTI. This includes Volkswagen’s Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, which applies the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage. The Golf GTI also comes standard with Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and switches on the hazard lights if the car is involved in certain types of collisions.
The Golf GTI is all about driver experience with driver controls that are positioned for optimum ergonomics and usability. The seat position, height of the shifter and the spacing between the pedals are fine-tuned for driver comfort. This driver-centric design focus is evident from the center stack, which is now angled towards the driver — a trait frequently seen in premium luxury or performance vehicles. Helping keep you connected and entertained on your journeys is the Golf GTI's MIB II touchscreen infotainment system. It creates the foundation for the next generation of Volkswagen’s Car-Net connected vehicle services platform, which includes three key areas — “App-Connect,” “Security & Service” and “Guide & Inform.” If you'd like to learn more about the high-performance and technologically-advanced 2017 Golf GTI, then be sure to get in touch with us at Carter Volkswagen!
