Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) delivers a precision calculated amount of fuel through high pressure jets directly into the combustion chamber to deliver optimum performance and fuel efficiency. It does so based on input from various car engine sensors that allow the vehicle's computer to accurately calculate and adjust the cars air to fuel mixture.
Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)
EDL improves driving and steering characteristics when accelerating on road surfaces where each wheel has a different degree of traction. The system operates automatically and is combined with the ABS system. Using the ABS wheel sensors, EDL monitors the speed of the individual driving wheels. When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected (i.e. when one wheel starts to spin due to differences in road surfaces e.g. due to water or dirt) the system brakes the spinning wheel, transferring engine power to the wheel with the best traction.1
Emergency Assist combines the functions of Lane Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control in a new assistance system to monitor driving characteristics.
If the sensors detect no steering, braking or acceleration activity, the system activates visual and acoustic warnings, and initiates a quick jolt of the brakes to request the driver to take control of the vehicle. If the driver remains inactive, the system automatically takes control to slow down the vehicle and keep it in the lane.
If there is sufficient stopping distance, the system decelerates the vehicle to a complete stop and switches on the electronic parking brake automatically. When Emergency Assist is actively controlling the vehicle, the hazard warning lights are switched on and the vehicle performs a slight snaking motion within its lane to warn other road users.1

Front Assist with City Emergency Braking uses a radar sensor to detect a possible collision with a vehicle in front. It then warns the driver and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, the system will apply the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding a collision. When you're travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake can apply the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn't respond, the system will do it automatically.1
In 1976 we launched the Volkswagen Golf GTI, our limited edition model that became an icon. Its 81kW engine appealed to drivers with an appetite for practical sporty performance and set the precedent for the powerful GTI models of today. Despite several performance and cosmetic upgrades, the instantly recognisable GTI badge - standing for Grand Tourer Injection - has remained present on every generation of the range, marking the capabilities that separate it from the rest.
Heads-up display (HUD)
The head-up display (HUD) projects key information such as the speed or navigation pictograms directly into the driver’s primary field of vision. Thanks to this projection, the driver’s eyes can remain focused on the road at the same time as registering information. Drivers can decide for themselves what information is to be displayed: current speed, navigation instructions, assistance system information and warnings.
