  • Driving & Handling

Sport suspension

This Autobahn-tuned sport suspension helps take handling to a new level. With firm control, the Golf GTI can stay level in corners and help maintain grip while managing to provide a smooth ride.

Driving Mode Selection

Selectable driving modes allow you to change the way your car performs. You have the power to adjust the drive and how the car responds on the road.

Hands on steering wheel
Progressive power steering with variable assistance

The variable-ratio steering system provides a quick response to driver input at higher speeds, while making driving easier at lower speeds. Now the only variable you have to think about is which route you want to take home.

DCC® adaptive chassis control

With three settings of suspension firmness to choose from, available DCC® adaptively controls the damper valves of the Golf GTI with a refined control algorithm. Taking input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors, DCC® adjusts the optimal damping force, selectively applying force to the four wheels individually.
Available DCC® adaptive chassis control
Paddle shifters

These available paddle shifters, located near your fingers on the steering wheel, let you quickly shift the 7-speed DSG® transmission without taking your hands off the wheel. Take the wheel, and take control.

GTI performance brakes

Ventilated disc brakes offer high-performance stopping power. A GTI logo on the front caliper indicates GTI performance brakes.

VAQ limited-slip front differential lock

This system monitors performance indicators like vehicle speed, wheel rotation, and lateral G-forces. This can help eliminate understeer by proactively making adjustments to maintain optimum torque balance, transferring up to 100% of torque to one wheel. Now that’s power with brainpower.

The turbo technology forces cooled air straight into the engine, helping give you increased performance, 228 hp, and 258 lb-ft of torque. But you don’t have to pop the hood to understand why. A simple step on the gas will do.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Park Assist
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking
  • Front Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps the vehicle maintain a preset speed and distance from the car in front of you. When activated, if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car follows suit up to the preset speed and/or preset distance.99

Blind Spot Monitor

The Blind Spot Monitor is a feature that can sense what you might miss. If you attempt to change lanes, Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to other cars that may be in your blind spot. The Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can also counter-steer within the limits of Lane Assist to help keep you in your lane if you attempt to change lanes when a vehicle is in your blind spot.100

Light Assist

Available High Beam Control (Light Assist) can help to provide optimum visibility on dark roads by automatically turning on your high beams at speeds above 37 mph. A camera mounted at the base of the rearview mirror turns your high beams on when conditions warrant it. It then turns them off again depending on the position of vehicles driving ahead of you or on-coming vehicles, the vehicle speed and other environmental and traffic conditions. 101

Lane Assist

When moving above 37 mph, the available Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. Within the limits of the system, Lane Assist can help keep you in the current lane when lane markings are detected.102

Park Assist

The available Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist) can determine if a parking spot is big enough for your Volkswagen. Then it will help steer the vehicle into and out of the space, either parallel or perpendicular. You operate the accelerator, brake, and shifter; it does the rest. 103

Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking

Available Park Distance Control has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close to a detected object, the system beeps as a warning. Maneuver Braking (included with Park Distance Control) can apply emergency braking force automatically to help mitigate and in best case prevent collisions with detected stationary obstacles while you maneuver the vehicle in reverse gear.104

Front Assist

The Forward Collision Warning (included in Front Assist) system can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential rear-end collision with the vehicle moving ahead. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, if the driver does not react at all, it can apply the brakes automatically. The Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist) feature can warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances, can brake automatically to help mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond to the warnings.105

Rear Traffic Alert

Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to detected vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and can even help brake the vehicle if needed.106

Eye-catching and aggressively styled, these two-tone black and silver 18" 5-spoke two-tone machined alloy wheels will keep you rolling in style while you catch admiring glances along the way.

LED headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)

These available headlights create bright beams of light to help improve visibility, lasting longer and using less energy than halogen bulbs. The Adaptive Front-lighting System allows the headlights to turn slightly with the direction of your steering at certain speeds. Lighting takes a brilliant turn.

Top Sport seats

Bucket-style, race-inspired front seats. The large, bolstered design really lets you sink into the action, whether you’re behind the wheel or you’re the copilot.

the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights.109 It helps react if you might not be able to.

Automatic Post-Collision Braking System

Not every collision brings a car to stop. That’s why our vehicles include the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts.110

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Monitoring and maintaining proper air pressure in your tires helps with efficiency and safety. The TPMS helps alert you to a loss of tire pressure so you know when to add air.

Six stability-enhancing systems

From Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), which helps maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard-braking situation, to Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most, your vehicle is equipped with a total of six stability-enhancing systems.
