Volkswagen Golf GTI 2017 Review: Liveable Sporty Car Tops Sales Charts

The Volkswagen Golf GTI 2017 regularly tops the sales charts and surpasses the comparison tests against the competition. The German brand is seen as a perfect blend in terms of price, comfort, and dynamism.

Volkswagen Golf GTI brings a range of upgrades as it enters its fifth year on sale. It has more power, improved in-car tech and style changes. It has a new bumper design and a pair of new full LED head lights which flanks the radiator grille with its signature red stripe. The new LED tail lights and number plate are now illuminated according to a report by Car Advice.

Apart from its handsome outside features, the Volkswagen Golf GTI, described as the liveable sporty car, has a powerful under chassis. The springs and adjustable dampers of the MQB chassis are carried over, but the engine gets a power bump to 169kW between 4700 and 6200rpm.

Volkswagen Golf GTI's torque is the same at 350Nm between 1500 and 4600rpm, driving the front wheels via the six-speed manual, or the six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearboxes. The XDL system which reduces the inner front wheel spin in corners also remains.

Volkswagen Golf GTI's noise suppression is very impressive. It has very low levels of roar from the 225 tires. The new 17-inch Brooklyn wheels at base level provide the cabin isolation from sharp hits.

Inside the Volkswagen Golf GTI is a 9.2 inch glossy and flush glass central display and a 12.3-inch digital Active Info Display according to Motoring. The main screen can be manipulated like a smartphone; can even be swiped using hand movement. The Gesture Control is reported to be a first in a small car class. It also offers Apple Car Play or Auto Android, WiFi, photorealistic sat-nav views and can also store and display high-resolution photos.
