What are some of the other qualities of this sporty small car that's at our Sunnyvale lot?

Exceptional Design

The hatchback design does drivers of the Volkswagen Golf GTI several favors, first of which is the attention-grabbing style that stands out on Palo Alto streets. A part of the small car category, it's the perfect car for the city with nimble handling for sharp turns and the ability to fit into tighter parking spots. However, the compact exterior opens up to a spacious cabin that fits five passengers and over 17 cubic feet of luggage, gear, or groceries in comfort.

Additionally, it has a range of exterior and interior design aspects take passenger comfort and convenience up a notch. These range from available all-LED exterior lighting, with LED fog lights and an Adaptive Front-lighting System, to interior ambient lighting and plaid seating surfaces, for showing off your individuality, to dual-zone climate control and Top Sport seats, for a relaxed ride. Plus, you can fold the rear row down for cargo storage stretching over 50 cubic feet.


Superior Safety

Car shoppers around Santa Clara will find that the Volkswagen Golf GTI has a few ways of trying to protect passengers. It's body design isn't just for performance as its safety cage helped it earn a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA, and the Intelligent Crash Response System does everything from turning off the fuel pump to activating the hazards after an accident.

While those tackle safety concerns when involved in an accident, other available driver-assist features are meant to help you avoid some of the more common types of accidents. These features include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)
  • Park Assist
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • High Beam Control

Exquisite Engineering

Every Volkswagen Golf GTI comes with the essence of the Autobahn in its engineering, and it shows. When at a standstill, it looks like a car that can't wait to get going, and the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that powers it effortlessly handles that. This engine has 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque ready to go any time you want to test its limits, and whichever of the two transmission options you choose, a 6-speed manual or 6-speed dual-clutch automatic, dispenses that power smoothly.

The powertrain is but one part of the excitement that drivers can expect with the Volkswagen Golf GTI as a sport-tuned suspension, drive mode selector, available limited-slip differential, and adaptive chassis control combine for a drive that is completely under your control.

Entertainment Tech

We've covered the technology that drivers will experience in the safety suite and engineering, but that is only the beginning as the Volkswagen Golf GTI also has ways to keep passengers entertained and on course. The available 400-watt FenderĀ® sound system provides clear notes of the audio, from a podcast to an album, that you choose for your drive, and the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration lets you pick that audio from your mobile device.

These systems and more are controlled through a touchscreen display, either 6.5- or 8-inch, conveniently located in the center dash, and it's available with a navigation system that has easy-to-follow directions to any destination. It's all just another way the Volkswagen Golf GTI takes the hassles out of your driving experience.
