New Golf GTI Unveiled With RM244,990 Recommended Retail Price

The New Volkswagen Golf GTI also now comes with IQ. Drive

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has today unveiled the refreshed Golf GTI, now equipped with IQ. Drive, an innovative Driver Assistance System (DAS). The interior has also been updated with new features such as wireless charging and an embroidered GTI logo on the front seats and more. How much does it cost? The new Golf GTI has a recommended retail price of RM244,990.


While there are so many new features in the new Volkswagen Golf GTI, such as the new fully digital 10.25 inch driver display with 3D navigation, new stylish and sporty exterior and so on, the standout feature has to be the new IQ. Drive system which is designed to assist drivers in making their journeys safer and more comfortable.

Moreover, safety features on the new Volkswagen Golf GTI include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) which uses radar and various sensors to detect vehicles ahead, as well as Side Assist which acts as an active blind spot monitor, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert which warns drivers of potential danger when the reverse gear is engaged.

Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM, also said, β€œWe are always striving to offer our customers the best possible ownership experience. The new safety feature for our latest Golf GTI model is just another example of our commitment to providing our owners with the highest level of safety and performance.”

Known as the ultimate hot hatchback, the Volkswagen Golf GTI lives up to its legacy by now offering a whole host of upgraded interior and exterior features such as new fog lights, adjustable folding mirrors and an additional centre airbag bringing the total number of airbags in the car to 7.

On top of that, the new Volkswagen Golf GTI is powered by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine making 245PS of power and 370Nm of torque paired to a 7-speed DSG transmission and the car runs on 18 inch alloy wheels and comes with a Front Differential Lock too.

The new Volkswagen Golf GTI also comes in five stylish colours including Kings Red and Atlantic Blue in a metallic finish, Moonstone Grey in a non-metallic finish and Deep Black as well as Oryx White which come in a pearl effect. One can enjoy all of these colours at no additional cost, which I feel should be the standard.

Despite looking sporty, the interior of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI is very roomy and comfortable as rear seat space is generous and the rear cabin even has its own air con vent giving the car 3-zone Climatronic air con and also 30 colours for the ambient lighting and five pre-set colour modes (Infinity, Eternity, Desire, Euphoria, Vitality).
