When it comes to technology, not too many hatchbacks can compete with the Volkswagen Golf GTI. So, our team here at Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine wrote this 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI tech review for our customers in Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport Beach—and we mean you!

If you have any further questions about this high-tech hatch, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our team members are well-versed in the entertainment, navigation, and safety systems of the 2017 VW Golf GTI.

Incredible Entertainment Technology

Let’s get real here—it’s the year 2017. That’s why the Volkswagen Golf GTI allows you to connect compatible smartphones to its touchscreen display. How does it do this? Through the VW Car-Net® App-Connect feature. It syncs up perfectly with software like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ so you can access all those important songs, audiobooks, podcasts, messages, emails, calls, maps, and much more.

However, if you’re more of a radiohead than an MP3 aficionado, you’ve got several options. Sure, you could tune to AM or FM stations, like your parents did when they were growing up—or, you could revel in the VW’s available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio capabilities, which bring music, live sports, news, talk, and all different types of enjoyable entertainment right into your cabin. It’s the best of the 21st century!

By this point, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve spent a lot of time going over music—specifically, which avenues the Volkswagen Golf GTI provides for you to find the songs you love. However, you’re wondering: Now that I’ve got all my favorite songs at my disposal, will they sound any good?

With the Golf GTI’s available Fender® Premium Audio System, they’ll sound better than good—they’ll sound great. Eight speakers, 400 watts of power, and a subwoofer will make sure of it. Get ready to rock!

State-of-the-Art Navigation Capabilities

These days, hardly anybody whips out a paper map and a compass like they did in the old days. Instead, we expect that our car will provide all the technology we need to get to where we need to go.

Fortunately, each trim of the Volkswagen Golf GTI delivers. Its exclusive VW Car-Net® Guide & Inform feature—which is included with a SiriusXM Traffic™ three-month trial subscription—gives you enhanced navigation with traffic and weather alerts. It’s our technological dream come true.
