2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Glendale CA
Everyone is looking for a vehicle that moves them, and not just literally. When shopping for a new car, you want options that are exciting, something worth showing off to friends. It’s a great privilege for many people to step up into a new car, rather than shopping around for a used vehicle and accepting the wear and tear already present. We proudly offer the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI to Glendale CA residents as a dream car that provides plenty of performance benefits without breaking the bank.
What is it about the Golf GTI that has created such a loyal following? The model is the perfect combination and fun and practical, as it offers all the same family-friendly features that the standard Golf does, but with a more stylish skin and a potent engine hiding under the hood. Design differences are subtle, but appealing as the GTI gains a more aggressive honeycomb bumper and grille, slim headlights trimmed with a red accent and 18-inch Austin alloy wheels with red brake calipers.
The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI is a worthy upgrade over the standard Golf, as it has a 2.0-liter turbo four that delivers 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque in the base model. Paired with the engine is either a six-speed manual transmission or a dual-clutch DSG six-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features for the 2017 VW Golf GTI include LED foglights, VW App-Connect, Bluetooth w/audio streaming a rearview camera system, touchscreen sound, driving mode selection, heated front seats with Clark Plaid upholstery, ambient interior lighting and a multi-function steering wheel.
The hatchback didn’t always have a great name, but as lines have become sleeker, it’s an attractive option for many. The Golf GTI has 18-inch Austin wheels with red brake calipers, standard Clark plaid seating, sport side skirts, an integrated rear spoiler, a honeycomb mesh grill and a red accent strip.
Why drive the 2017 VW Golf GTI?
When it comes to practical, well-rounded vehicles, it’s hard to go wrong with the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Its compact size makes it an ideal fit for commuters, recent graduates and anyone who doesn’t need the space of a larger sedan. Which isn’t to say the model is cramped, with 93.5 cubic feet of passenger volume providing ample room. The cargo space is even better, with 22.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which fold flat to allow for a full 52.7 cubic feet behind the front seats.
A roomy interior combines with impressive performance specs, which are even better starting with the updated SE trim. The SE sits just above the base trim and has all the features that were previously part of a Performance Package as new standard benefits. This means 220 horsepower, a VAQ limited-slip differential lock and larger front and rear vented disc brakes.
There are a total of four trim levels for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Standard features include heated front seats, Clark plaid upholstery, ambient lighting, a rearview camera system, driving mode selection (Normal/Sport/Comfort/Individual Modes), a 6.5-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto and Apple-CarPlay connectivity, Bluetooth and more. Available features run the gamut of driver assistance options as well as automatic headlights, LED DRLs, Bi-Xenon headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers and Dynamic Chassis Control.
