2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Las Vegas NV
Is there anything more disappointing, and maybe a bit scary, than trying to get up to highway speed only to have your car struggle? You might prefer a compact car for a variety of reasons, but some models are all show, and no performance. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI, available in Las Vegas NV at Findlay North VW, is not one of those models. You’ll get plenty of get-up-and-go out of the 2.0-liter engine as it delivers up 210 horsepower and 258 pound feet of torque in the base trim option.
We’re not going to say an attractive exterior is nearly as important as performance, but it certainly doesn’t hurt the appeal of the Volkswagen Golf GTI. This model has a subtle, understated style that only slightly stands out from the crowd, which only serves to make it an even more fun ride when you show your friends and family just how much fun this hot little hatchback is to drive. Pair it with a six-speed manual for complete control over gear shifts, or upgrade to the DSG automatic for a smooth ride.
The Golf GTI has always been performance-focused, but it gets better for 2017 starting at the new Sport trim as the Performance Package is absorbed as standard features. This means a boost from 210 horsepower to 220hp, a VAQ limited-slip front differential and larger front and rear disc brakes.
Convenience, style and comfort features always catch the attention of shoppers. The GTI is a fun option that comes standard with LED foglights, Car-Net App-Connect, Bluetooth with audio, driving mode selection, a performance monitor, a rearview camera, heated front seats and Clark Plaid upholstery.
There’s seating for five in the Golf GTI, with total passenger volume sitting at 93.5 cubic feet. Behind the rear seats, you’ll find an additional 22.8 cubic feet for your cargo, but if you fold the rear seats flat you can open up the entire rear area for total space of 52.7. That’s room enough for a bike!
2017 VW Golf GTI is designed for enthusiasts
Here at Findlay North Volkswagen, we have to admit we have something of a soft spot for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. The model’s history is almost as long as that of the standard Golf, as fans quickly realized the affordable vehicle could offer up surprising performance. Today, drivers still love the simple look and surprising potency offers by the GTI, and the honeycomb grille, red accent strip and bright red brake calipers are standouts at any enthusiast meet.
The Golf GTI comes in four total trim levels for 2017: S, Sport, SE and Autobahn. It starts off with all the necessities, like full power features and a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, but the new Sport trim offers some of the best value as the performance features that really boost the driving experience become standard at this trim. This means larger vented disc brakes, a VAQ limited-slip differential and a small horsepower boost. Other highlights include Bi-Xenon headlights, 18-inch Nogaro wheels, and keyless access with push-button start.
