VW Golf GTI 2020 in the Test

Currently, one has the impression that VW is all about the ID3. But sometimes, the dance holds to the Golden electrical-calf and the lower Saxony car maker recalls his past and the fact that there are also other motorists as the the younger. The Highlights of the Wolfsburg-based automotive history is without a doubt the GTI. Once a real racer from the Finest, then in between, as an equipment variant without real substance stunted, to Shine of people's athlete in the eighth Generation now in traditional dynamic Shine and Gloria and family-friendly be.

New GTI: In the Cockpit, everything is digital

the latter is resolved quickly. As in Golf 8 adults will find the rear space and the boot is lean, with a volume of 380 to 1270 litres with folded Rear seat spacious enough. The new digitization will be held in the new Cockpit, which dispenses as far as possible, the use of classical controls such as knobs, buttons and levers. For the majority of the functions should be served by ten-inch touch screen. If you are a bit busy with the Wipe and Press the do I navigate in the menus, which are arranged like Apps, well. Also the volume control works via rain gutters contact element and who does not like the use, in the steering Wheel, the buttons, or just below the Central screen, where you can, for example, directly to the climate control setting. Even in the digital cosmos, everything is not Gold that glitters, it became clear to us after a break at the restart of the Parking manoeuvring assistant adopted. press-inform / VW Enough power: The two-liter four-cylinder delivers 180 kW / 245 PS

But the VW Golf GTI is made for Driving and not stop. And since the Wolfsburg engineers have done a great job. The eighth Golf GTI gets now even in the standard Version of the EA 288 four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine with 180 kW / 245 HP, which was previously reserved for the Performance variant. Thus, the 1460 kg heavy VW-athlete accelerates in 6.3 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and up to 250 km/h is fast. More than ordinary values, as some BMW have to Huff 1er very nice. But straight-in other asphalt can fire athletes such as the Hyundai i30 N also. In the curves, the chaff is separated also in the compact class from the wheat.

vehicle dynamics: Classical Hardware and new technology

you know in Wolfsburg, have also tightened the chassis considerably, and the System-baton in the Hand of the "vehicle dynamics Manager," placed. The McPherson front suspension has stiffer control-arm mounts, and the shocks and springs are retuned. From the Clubsport S version of the Golf 7 GTI have caught the engineers of the Aluminium sub-frame, the three kilograms weighs less than before and a more rigid connection. The electronically controlled front-axle cross lock (VAQ) and the well-known XDS Plus with brake intervention for dynamics. The MacPherson strut multi-link rear suspension, among other things, the control arm bearings, and the springs and additional aligned springs, and new wheel carriers and damper bearings installed. This includes higher spring rates at both axles. "The car is supposed to be accurate, but not nervous," explained Riders Karsten Schebsdat. press-inform / VW Modern Cockpit: Like the "normal" Golf GTI meets dispensed with a button salad

Mission. The area of the Golf GTI 8, the the country road. The wolf Burger is a compact athlete is happy about every change of direction and fast corners, a very long time in a neutral velvet light-footed rear. The good traction is also a result of the wider 19-inch 235er tires and the wider track. This linear thrust of the four-cylinder petrol engine that pushes in the Sport driving program with a rich but not too Intrusive sound comes. If you drive to victory, selects the Sport driving mode, the steering and Gas direct acting and every. The steering is reporting obligation pursuant to, the condition of the road, it could feel more natural.

Suitable in the Individual mode,

Who does not necessarily have a greater restoring forces, selects the comfort mode, which is the only Alternative. In spite of the variable dampers, the GTI is also in the comfort setting, no litter, that is why we have made in the Individual driving mode of the Golf match, where you can adjust the hardness of the dampers in a plurality of stages. A specially designed roll stabilisation, there is not at this GTI by the way, this is regulated via the adaptive dampers and it works well. The front of the car remains fast in the direction of change is largely stable. The six-speed manual transmission could be a little crisper and shorter paths. The seats, of course, with fabric centre panels with diamond pattern are comfortable and provide good lateral support. The official average fuel consumption of VW has yet We came to 9.7 l/100 km, however, we were Frequently at higher speeds on the road.

As is the case with VW usual, the 10.25 inches wide Cockpit, including the virtual instruments are configurable and you can quickly find the classic view with the speedometer and tachometer.
