Fastest Golf GTI yet, ahead of flagship Performance pack arrival in 2014.

Now available in five-door only, the new GTI’s Australian entry prices have increased by $1000 over the previous Mk6 five-door GTI . This puts the six speed manual model at $41,490, with the six-speed DSG dual-clutch auto commanding $2500 more at $43,990.

The new GTI stands out from the rest of the Mk7 Golf lineup with unique front and rear fascias, five spoke 18 inch ‘Austin’ design alloy wheels on 225/45 tyres, red brake calipers, exhaust outlets on either side of the rear diffuser and dark tinted taillights.

The traditional GTI red grille ‘lipstick’ now runs along the lower edge of the grille, extending through the headlights when Bi-Xenon headlights are optioned.

With the turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol now producing 162kW/350Nm (up from 155kW/280Nm), Volkswagen claims the new GTI can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds (down 0.4) with either transmission, 80-120km/h in 5.0 seconds, with a top speed of 246km/h.

The engine now uses direct and port injection for improved flexibility, and a standard stop/start system helps deliver a combined fuel figure of 6.2L/100km for the manual, and 6.6L/100km for the DSG auto (down from 7.7 and 7.6L/100km).

The new GTI rides on a sport-tuned suspension setup that sits 15mm lower than other Golf models, with standard three-mode adaptive dampers and two-stage stability control that deactivates traction control when in sport mode.

Progressive variable-ratio steering also makes its GTI debut, reducing steering effort at slow speeds, and reducing the required inputs for high-speed manoeuvres. The use of weight-saving materials in the Mk7 Golf s MQB platform has seen mass drop by up to 56kg across GTI models, with kerb weights spanning 1324-1380kg.

On the inside, the GTI comes with a 5.8 inch multimedia touchscreen as standard, along with unique instrument graphics, a leather multifunction steering wheel, red ambience lighting and brushed stainless steel pedals. The previous GTI’s ‘Jacky’ tartan pattern used on the standard cloth trim has been updated to a subtly different ‘Clark’ tartan with the new model.

Golf GTI options include premium paint ($500), a panoramic electric glass sunroof ($1850), Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights ($2150), Vienna leather trim ($3150), and a driver assistance package ($1300) that includes adaptive cruise control, Front Assist surroundings monitoring and City Emergency Braking. A driver fatigue detection system is fitted standard.

An upgraded GTI Performance variant will be available from the first half of next year, with an uprated 169kW version of the 2.0 litre engine, plus larger 340/310mm (up 28/10mm) brakes wearing the GTI logo, plus an electronically-controlled mechanical front diff lock that helps more of the GTI’s 350Nm to be transferred through the front wheels, and integrates with all other driving aids.

The Performance option will be identifiable by standard Bi-Xenon headlights, tinted LED taillights, tinted windows, and larger 19 inch multispoke ‘Santiago’ wheels. On the inside, the Performance pack will bring alcantara highlights to the side bolsters and headrests of the tartan cloth sports seats.
