2016 Volkswagen GTI specs

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is an excellent choice for drivers looking for a vehicle that can provide them with ample amounts of power, while still being affordable for everyday driving. Behind the wheel of the 2016 GTI, not only do you have access to its powerful, yet efficient engine, but you also get the added benefit of all of the additional technology that is coming with the model this year. The 2016 Volkswagen GTI specs show that not only does Volkswagen value power and affordability, they also want to ensure that you have the most enjoyable driving experience possible.

While we don’t have all of the details on the 2016 model of the GTI, if the 2015 GTI is anything to go off of, drivers can expect a nice power output of around 220 horsepower with 258 lb.-ft. of torque. With all of this power at its hands, the GTI is capable of reaching a top speed of 125 mph.

Power isn’t everything for the GTI, either. The 2015 GTI is capable of achieving truly impressive fuel economy, with 25 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway. Add that to the incredibly affordable base price and you’ve got a powerhouse that can be found in any driver’s garage.

New technology in the 2016 GTI

With the new model year, the Golf GTI is seeing even more changes in terms of technology. The 2016 GTI will feature the MIB II infotainment system, giving drivers access to a wide variety of in-car apps and features. The system features USB connectivity and the VW Car-Net App-Connect which functions off of the integrated 6.5-inch touch screen.

Other new features include a rearview camera as a standard, making backing up in your vehicle easier than ever. An updated Driver Assistance Package is also available on SE and Autobahn models, and the update includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking as well as Lane Assist and a Blind Spot Monitor which features Rear Traffic Alerts, Parking Pilot and Park Assist.
