  • Safety

    Pedestrian Monitoring.2

    Whether you're negotiating busy urban roads or stop-and-go traffic, the Golf GTI Original is always keeping an eye out. The vehicle benefits from an upgraded Front Assist with City Emergency Brake2 feature, which now includes a Pedestrian Monitoring2 function.

    The system uses a radar sensor in the vehicle to detect when something suddenly enters your vehicle's path without warning. It firstly gives an acoustic and visual signal to warn the driver, then prepares the vehicle for hard braking. If the driver fails to react, the system automatically performs emergency braking.

Safety Features.

With great performance comes great responsibly. So, we’ve fitted the GTI with a raft of safety and driver aids, which all come together to help you not only enjoy the ride but get home safe every time.

  • Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)

    Turn a corner on traction.

    An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function - this clever addition helps achieve optimal handling in all conditions. 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.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)2

    A smart way to cruise.

    An upgrade on the conventional cruise control system - Adaptive Cruise Control employs the use of a radar sensor that, once you select your speed range, monitors the road ahead for other vehicles and adapts your speed accordingly. This allows you to invariably maintain a safe distance when driving.

  • Front Assist with City Emergency Brake2

    It puts your foot down for you.

    Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when a vehicle in front of you gets too close. The system then warns the driver and prepares the car for emergency braking, giving you a better chance of avoiding a collision.

2. Safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, but should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices.
