After its official reveal over a year ago, pricing for the all-new Volkswagen Golf GTI has finally been announced for South Africa. The highly anticipated hot hatch first entered the country as of April this year with local specification being confirmed one month prior to that.
Keeping things competitive, the Volkswagen Golf GTI has been priced from R669 300. Included in this is 18-inch “Richmond” alloy wheels, VW’s lights and vision package (with high-beam control light assist), Climatronic air conditioning, a heated leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, “GTI Vienna” leather seats, the “Composition Media” sound system, the 10,25-inch multi-colour InnoVision cockpit, App-Connect, cruise control (with a speed limiter), parking sensors, wireless smartphone charging and 30-colour ambient lighting.
Optionally available for the Volkswagen Golf GTI is a mechanically swivelling trailer hitch, LED matrix headlamps, a black styling package (including black 18-inch “Bergamo” alloys), a head-up display, a smoker’s package, 19-inch “Adelaide” alloy wheels, a Harman Kardon sound system, the “Discover Pro” audio system (with sat-nav, wireless App-Connect and voice control), a parallel parking assistant, rear assist with rear view camera, blind spot monitoring, lane assist, adaptive cruise control (with front assist) and autonomous emergency braking.
Owners can finish their cars in three solid paint exterior colours: Pure White, Urano Grey and Moonstone Grey; along with four metallic hues: Dolphin Grey, Atlantic Blue, Kings Red and Reflex Silver; and two pearlescent options: Deep Black Pearl and Oryx White Pearl.
So, what was the reason for such a long wait? As stated by Steffen Knapp, Head of the Volkswagen Passenger Car Brand, “The Volkswagen Group has been impacted by the global shortage of the semiconductor chips and all vehicles built on the MQB platform have been affected.”
The Volkswagen Golf GTI will be powered by the EA888 turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder engine pushing 180 kW and 370 N.m of torque to the fronts via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. With this, it’ll sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6,4 seconds.
