Agile drive, picture-book chassis, tamper-proof design, perfect ergonomics, pure driving pleasure - the DNA of a genuine sports car. At Volkswagen, three letters stand for this: GTI. Now comes the eighth generation of the Golf classic. The new Golf GTI is more digital, more connected, more sharply cut, and more driving-friendly than ever before. The turbo engine develops 180 kW (245 hp). A new driving dynamics manager intelligently blends the electromechanical chassis systems. Maximum dynamics, maximum comfort - this Golf GTI combines both. Generation 8 of the Golf GTI reflects a new status quo of front-wheel drive. The new Driving Dynamics Manager plays a decisive role in this. "The system centrally and superordinately coordinates the electromechanical chassis functions," explains Karsten Schebsdat, Head of Driving Dynamics, Steering and Control Systems. "The combination of a retuned chassis plus front axle cross-lock and driving dynamics manager has enabled us to take the outstanding overall performance of the Golf GTI to yet another higher level. This is even more true when the DCC suspension with adjustable dampers, equipped with a new software application, is also on board.""
