2015 Volkswagen Golf Review

The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI is now at Norm Reeves Volkswagen, and our customers couldn’t be more excited. From Fullerton, Santa Ana, and Laguna Beach, our customers are storming our showroom to drive home in this new model. With the Golf GTI’s newest features and performance upgrades, it’s better than ever.


Performance

Volkswagen’s famous German engineering has made the brand-new 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI wider, lower, and faster than ever. A body that includes high-strength steel that's stronger and lighter than conventional steel improves turning, stopping, and moving.

Standard on the new Golf GTI is sport-tuned suspension. It provides tighter body control, allows the car to stay more level when turning corners, and has an improved grip—all of which is done without sacrificing a smooth and easy ride.

For those who prefer a bit more control when driving, there’s the Driving Mode Selection standard. From adjusting the steering, engine response, and even the handling of the car itself, you can control all of your rides to make them just the way you like it.

There’s also the XDS Cross Differential system that allows your brakes to do more than just stop. With this, your brakes can transfer power to the wheels to improve traction when turning corners. 

Engine

The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI features a 210-horsepower, 2.0L, four-cylinder engine that gives up to 258 lb-ft of torque—for a small car, this engine definitely packs a punch. Being the most powerful engine to be housed in a Golf GTI, it's lighter and the most fuel-efficient engine it’s ever had. 

While this engine is impressive, we know that some people may want just a little bit more out of it. That’s why Volkswagen is offering the Performance Package for those who want to kick up the power a notch. It adds 10 horsepower to the 210 horsepower in the engine, front and rear high-performance brakes, and a torque-sensing limited-slip differential.

Features

With 30 years of redesigning and refining, it’s not surprising that the Golf GTI features some high-quality technologies offered in vehicles today. From the available Fender Premium sound system to touch-screen navigation to a panoramic sunroof to the standard Volkswagen Car-Net connected car features, the Golf GTI offers the best advancements.

The standard Volkswagen Car-Net allows you to stay connected to your car no matter where you are with the help of your smartphone. Once connected, you can view your vehicle's performance information as well as details about any servicing you may need and suggested car care. Plus it can help you schedule your appointments at the Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore’s service center. As an added bonus, this feature allows you to set speed limits and driving area boundaries so you can control your car regardless of who’s driving. If the speed limit is exceeded or the car goes over a set boundary, you're notified via text message or email.

Safety

Although the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI is a small car, it doesn’t skimp on the features to keep you safe while driving. With adaptive airbags, seven stability-enhancing systems, and an advanced safety cage, this model was built with the strength you need.

With the Driver Assistance Package, you can experience the technologies to help you avoid collisions. With the Forward Collision Warning,  you get visual warnings and sounds if something is approaching the front end of your vehicle too quickly. The Park Distance Control sends audible alerts so you can see how close an object is to your car, while the Automatic Post-Collision Braking system helps keep your car from moving if you had a collision and reduces any other impacts.

After 30 years of redesigning, Volkswagen has released the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI, and it's better than ever. From the lightweight body to the powerful engine to the impressive features, the GTI is sure to make a mark.
