Why You Should Invest in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI

January 14th, 2019 by

All of the models in the VW Golf lineup are excellent choices, but some stand out from the crowd more than the others do. The Golf GTI is one of these. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI features plenty of new features that help it be even more eye-catching and fun to drive.

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Adjusting the Trims
Before you start looking into the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI, you should know that VW has adjusted the trim levels for this model as well as the regular Golf. VW streamlined the model options based on which ones were the most popular. This makes it less confusing for drivers to figure out which Golf GTI model is right for them. You can still choose a two- or four-door model with the S trim level. Harvey drivers who like four-door models also get to pick from the SE, Autobahn, and the new Sport, which sits between the S and SE.

New Golf GTI Sport

Those who love the features of the 2017 Golf GTI Sport will find this the perfect reason to upgrade their hatchback. This new model comes standard with the Performance Package, giving you an extra 10 horsepower, bringing it up to 220, and the 2-liter turbocharged engine. You also get a limited-slip differential, the Golf R’s brakes, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, push-button start, LED running lights, and bi-xenon headlights.

Rethinking the VW Golf Performance Package

The Performance Package is also standard on the GTI SE and the Autobahn. You can’t get it with the GTI S anymore, however. This shouldn’t be an issue for most Harvey drivers, since the GTI Sport costs only a bit more than the S and includes the package.

Other Updates to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

In addition to everything already mentioned, the Golf GTI Autobahn trim sees a few enhancements that make it well worth upgrading to the 2017 model. It now has standard forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitor. It also offers rear cross-traffic alert, LED running lights, and bi-xenon headlights.
