Active Info Display4

Say hello to digital with the Active Info Display. The GTI replaces the traditional instruments that sit behind the steering wheel, with a 12.3” high-definition digital screen. This puts everything you need, right in front of you with configurable views for navigation, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.

Technology Features

Adaptive Cruise Control5

The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. In doing so, it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, while reducing the risk of exceeding the speed limit.

Simply approach your Golf GTI with the keys in your pocket and the car will automatically unlock when you reach to open the door. Once inside you still won’t need to take your keys out, you just fire up the engine with a simple push of a button.

Dual-zone Climate Control

This feature allows the driver and front passenger to choose the temperature that suits them. Plus, there’s the added benefit of an air-quality sensor and allergen filter to maintain optimum air quality.

Safety Features

5 Star Safety

The Golf is German Engineered to the highest of safety standards. ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) are the leading independent vehicle safety advocate. If you’d like more details, head to their website and read their safety report on the Golf:

Safety Features

Seven Airbags

With seven airbags as standard, including front, front side, front and rear curtain and driver’s knee. If something does go wrong, you’ll be glad you’re in a Golf GTI.

Safety Features

Driver Fatigue Detection5

This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates signs of fatigue, such as steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, it warns the driver with an audible alarm and a visual alter, on the console – recommending the driver take a break.

Safety Features

Electromechanical Parking Brake & Auto Hold

A button now replaces the conventional handbrake. Plus, with Auto Hold, as your car comes to a stop the ABS hydraulic unit holds the brakes, allowing you to comfortably take your foot off the pedal.

Safety Features 2

Manoeuvre Braking5

Built to assist parking even in the tightest of spaces, Manoeuvre Braking, front and rear, is designed to avoid or reduce the likelihood of a collision by automatically braking if an obstacle is detected by the parking sensors.

Safety Features 2

Traffic Jam Assist5

We've developed a suite of driver assistance technology to provide you with a comfortable drive in stop-and-go traffic jams.

Safety Features 2

Front Assist with City Emergency Braking & Pedestrian Monitoring5

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.

Safety Features 2

Park Assist5

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.

Safety Features 3

Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)5

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.

Safety Features 3

Rear View Camera5

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.

Safety Features 3

Blind Spot Monitor5

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.

Safety Features 3

Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)5

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.
