The classic Golf made the accomplishment of a five-star Euro NCAP rating look seemingly effortless, and the new GTI Mk 7 follows it confidently with substantial equipment.
Precrash Preventative Occupant Protection is a standard addition to the car, automatically bringing measures into place if a collision is sensed.
Further features for your protection and reassurance include full-size airbags with sensors, Electronic Stability Control, front and rear parking sensors and the comprehensive Driver Alert System.
Starting with the iconic honeycomb front grille and across the flowing laser-welded shell, the new GTI is undeniably a Golf.
It's positioned lower and more aggressively on 18-inch wheels and a retuned sports suspension system, hugging the road and owning its place on the tarmac.
Dynamic side skirts and front air intakes indicate the enhanced agility of the car and contribute to its agile, efficient performance.
Ergonomic seating finished in a bold red 'Jacara' cloth reflects the more athletic style and aura of the GTI, continuing the flash of colour from the brake callipers and the Xenon headlights.Drivers have a three-spoke leather steering wheel and an exclusive GTI gearstick within comfortable reach whenever they take the command position.
Considering the extensive level of standard equipment and technology within the vehicle, the levels of personal and load space are impressive. Folding the flexible rear seats will generate a maximum luggage capacity of 1,270 litres.
The most powerful system within the Golf GTI is the model-exclusive 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine.
It delivers a blistering 217bhp and 350Nm of torque at the mid-rev range, with a satisfying and envy-inspiring rumble that instinctively turns heads.
Whether partnered with a seamless six-speed manual or automatic DSG transmission, the engine will push you and the car to 60mph from a standstill within seven seconds.
Another reassuring figure provided by the vehicle is the potential 47.1mpg combined in fuel economy.
As you drive, benefit from the 2Zone Climate Control for supreme comfort and access and from the Adaptive Cruise Control for smoother journeys.
The GTI is also fitted with a Convenience Pack as standard, which provides added value alongside an automatic dimming rear-view mirror and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.
