The convenience of an everyday car . . . the excitement of a performance vehicle . . . only in the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI in Allentown PA can two worlds collide and drive away greatly improved. Most small cars you'll be passing on your daily commute won't be housing over 200 horsepower under their hoods, and most certainly won't have benefitted from genuine German engineering. What the 2016 Golf GTI "lacks" in flashy exterior ornamentation it makes up for in the latest active safety, technology and convenience features (found often on the upper trims of some luxury models).
The original "hot hatch" has never been one to blend in, even with its uncomplicated body style. Standard equipment on the base four-door Golf GTI S trim includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, a rear spoiler, heated side mirrors, power-reclining front seats, cruise control, air-conditioning, unique plaid cloth upholstery, heated front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seats with a center pass-through, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with rearview camera display, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a USB port, VW Car-Net telematics and satellite radio.
The GTI is made for the Autobahn -- there's even an "Autobahn" trim. No matter which trim you choose, you'll have a 210-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 258 pound-feet of torque to play with, mated to a standard six-speed manual.
If parallel parking isn't your thing, let your GTI do it for you. The available Driver Assistance package adds automated parallel parking plus adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, emergency brake assist and blind-spot monitoring to any Golf GTI SE or Autobahn model.
No need to sacrifice fuel economy for performance on the 2016 GTI -- the manual transmission earns you 34 MPG highway and the automated manual gets 33 MPG highway.
Get the in
Once you get behind the wheel of a new Golf GTI, you'll wonder how you survived so long without it. Consistently one of the most fun and safest vehicles to drive according to experts and consumers, it's got one of the most impressive interior spaces among small cars today. Bold red stitching and plaid cloth accents will remind you of the Golf GTI's European inception; its price tag will remind you you're squarely on this side of the Atlantic.
