2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Las Vegas, NV
There have been plenty of cool hatchbacks throughout the past few decades, but there has only ever been one hot hatch – the VW Golf GTI. Back to claim its spot at the top of the segment, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI is cruising all over the world and one of its many stops is Las Vegas, NV. Before everyone rolls out the red carpet, here are some details the 2018 VW Golf GTI.
Stronger than ever before, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI is forging a path to Las Vegas, NV with its 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged and direct-injection engine, constantly ravaging roads with 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All of that brute strength can be reined in with either a standard six-speed manual transmission (6MT) or an available six-speed automatic (6AT).
As estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency, the 2018 VW Golf GTI earns 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway when tamed by a 6MT. Shoppers who go with the 6AT will fall about a mile behind with 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
