Volkswagen Golf GTI | Toms River, NJThe Volkswagen Golf GTI runs on a 2.0L TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that can get up to 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

This powertrain works with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, but a 7-speed DSG® automatic is also available. You’ll still be able to control the gear shifting with the automatic, thanks to its Tiptronic® design and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

You can rely on this exciting hatchback in any situation too. It sits on an autobahn-tuned sport suspension to maintain grip and deliver a smooth ride around even the tightest corners. With its limited-slip differential, it can even transfer 100 percent of the torque to a single wheel.

Both the chassis and the damping can be adjusted to match your drive too. Driving Mode Selection allows you to switch between five modes: Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Custom.

While the Volkswagen Golf GTI offers an exciting drive, it can also help you keep your journey going by delivering great fuel economy. It gets up to an EPA-estimated 24 MPG city and 32 MPG highway[i].

Interior Dimensions
