Inside the GTI Original, the classic Clark tartan upholstery of the GTI range adorns the front and rear seats, while a new-generation 8” infotainment system with App-Connect1 features in the center console.
App-Connect1 brings your smartphone to your car’s display, giving you access to selected apps, maps and music via Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.
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.
The increased performance of the GTI has been handsomely paired with an updated exterior design and a range of new colours and extras.
The GTI impresses outside and in, with a huge range of advanced technology on board.
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.
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.
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.
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.
