  • Adaptive Cruise Control4

  • Front Assist with City Emergency Braking & Pedestrian Monitoring4

    The Golf GTI is equipped with the genius Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Pedestrian Monitoring. This uses a radar sensor to detect when a vehicle or pedestrian suddenly enters your path without warning and can automatically apply the brakes to reduce the likelihood of a collision.

    Using acoustic and visual signal to warn the driver, the vehicle prepares itself for hard braking. If the driver fails to react, the system automatically performs emergency braking. Taking the drama out of any unexpected situations.

    How it works
  • Park Assist4

    No space too tight. No park too tough. The Golf can tuck itself away, saving you the worry. Using sensors on either side of the front and rear bumpers, together with parking distance sensors front and back, Park Assist actively helps you get in and out of spaces.

  • Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)4

    An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function - this clever addition helps achieve optimal handling in all conditions. Operating on both axles, it applies pressure to the wheel on the inside when cornering to help prevent wheel spin. As a result of this precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and more accurate.

  • Rear View Camera4

    Whether reversing out of driveway or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The Rear View Camera displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you, making reversing safer and easier.

  • Blind Spot Monitor4

    The Blind Spot Monitor, uses an LED display in the exterior mirror to alert you to potential dangers in your blind spot. It works in conjunction with the Rear Traffic Alert system, which monitors traffic passing at the rear of the vehicle. If your car comes too close to another vehicle, you will be alerted by audible and visual warnings.

  • Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)4

    ESP helps prevent the vehicle from losing control when trying to avoid an accident. It also reduces the effects of understeer or oversteer.

    Should a situation arise where the vehicle starts to skid, ESP will apply the brakes to individual wheels and automatically adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
