The exterior design of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI

The design of the new Golf GTI reflects pure charisma. The GTI is faster, more efficient and safer in terms of driving dynamics thanks to its unusually good aerodynamics (cw = 0.275). The standard LED headlights are positioned low down; optionally, they form a striking crossbar together with the radiator grille. Towards the top of the hood there is a narrow red GTI line that stretches across the front end. When the daytime running lights are activated - automatically if desired by the driver approaching with the key - an LED strip in the headlights accompanies the red line. For the first time, the radiator grille is also optionally illuminated - as a continuation of the LED strip. This creates a completely new, unmistakable front light design. Also striking and unmistakable: the large, undivided lower air intake grille with the honeycomb pattern typical of the GTI; framed on the outside by a black appliqué, on the sides as distinctive wings. The new GTI insignia also include the fog lamps (optional), which are now integrated into the air intake grille in an X shape.
