VW Golf GTI upgraded for 2024, price upped at RM253K

KUALA LUMPUR: The Volkswagen Golf GTI has been updated for 2024.

It now comes with a Harman Kardon audio system and head-up display feature, upping the price of the car by RM6,978 to RM252,990 (on-the-road without insurance).

The latest Golf GTI model is a blend of high-end technology, safety features, and powerful performance, making it a standout in the hot hatch segment. The car's interior is enhanced by the Harman Kardon 480-watt audio system, boasting 10 speakers that deliver an immersive surround sound experience. This system significantly elevates the cabin's ambiance with its superior acoustics.

For safety and driver awareness, the GTI introduces a new head-up display. This feature projects crucial information, such as speed, navigation, and system warnings, directly onto the windscreen. This design keeps drivers informed without the need to divert their eyes from the road, ensuring a safer driving experience.

The Golf GTI has a robust 2.0TSI turbocharged engine paired with a 7-speed wet clutch DSG transmission. This combination generates 242hp and 370Nm of torque.

The car's exterior is instantly recognisable, featuring a signature honeycomb front grille with red GTI trims, sporty 18” Richmond alloy wheels with red brake calipers, and full LED headlamps and taillights.

Adding to its appeal, the GTI includes the IQ. Drive system, an advanced Driver Assistance System (DAS), which enhances safety and comfort.

This system includes features like Travel Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Side Assist for blind-spot monitoring, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert for reversing safety. In addition, Front Assist with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) uses a radar sensor to monitor the distance to vehicles ahead and detects pedestrians and cyclists.

The Lane Assist function, equipped with a camera-based lane-keeping assistant, ensures the vehicle stays in its lane and automatically intervenes if it deviates without the driver’s indication. The Adaptive Lane Guidance function further maintains the vehicle's position within its lane, learning from the driver's habits.
