Description

The eighth generation of the Volkswagen Golf is a C-Segment car launched in 2019, based on an updated version of the MQB platform. In March 2020, Volkswagen unveiled 3 performance versions of the Golf – the GTI (gasoline), the GTD (diesel) and the GTE (plug-in hybrid), followed in October 2020 by the more focused GTI Clubsport and the flagship Golf R in late 2020.

The Golf GTI Clubsport is fitted with a new version of the turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0 TSI engine (EA888 evo4) producing 221 kW / 300 hp of power and 400 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front axle through a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic with the help of the electromechanical front-axle locking differential. The car also comes with a more focused suspension setting that is lowered by 10 mm (McPherson front axle and a multi-link rear suspension) and the optional adaptive chassis control (DCC).

Visually, the Golf GTI is distinguished by the redesigned front bumper featuring larger honeycomb air intakes, unique 18″ alloy wheels, wider side sills, rear diffuser with integrated dual oval tailpipes, two-part rear spoiler and Clubsport graphics, while retaining the LED headlights merging with the GTI grille. Inside, we find sport seats upholstered in ArtVelours, perforated leather steering wheel with touch controls and paddles for the DSG gearbox, aluminum-look pedals, ambient lighting, and GTI-specific graphics for the Digital Cockpit (12,3″ digital instrument cluster and 10″ central touchscreen).
