The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn has been completely redesigned for 2015. Few cars can be both fun and practical, but the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn has done for over a quarter century. The combination of the sensitive nature of the Golf hatchback with several performance improvements, the GTI is the iconic sporty compact for the common man. The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn have better than others gone through the years, but we’re pretty sure 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI will rank as one of the best yet.
2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Interior
Complete redesign this year is one of the reasons why. Visually, the changes are subtle, with headlights and taillights reformed and sharper creases on the body side. The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn is a bit longer and wider than the output, but a new sloped hood design gives it a more dynamic look shorter. Among the differences are also mild. Rear seat and cargo space increases slightly, and that’s a good thing. Inside the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn was already one of the best in terms of design and quality.

More substantial changes are under the skin of steel. VW has introduced a new body structure with the revised suspension settings to give the GTI’s sporty handling this time (although with an unfortunate drop in ride quality of this year). He stepped on the accelerator and the new GTI is moving faster, too. The four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged 210 horsepower and 258 now generates pound-feet of torque, gains of 10 horsepower and 51 foot-pounds compared to the previous model. An optional package adds 10 horsepower, along with larger front and rear mechanical front differential electronically controlled limited slip brakes yy – a GTI first – that can help power the hatch faster laps. An optional adaptive suspension is another new addition.
Put them together and you have traditional strengths of 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn refinement, functionality and quality, but now with greater agility and performance. VW is not the only brand competing for your dollar hot hatch, of course. For rowdier acceleration and handling, the Ford Focus ST sets is standard. It is significantly less expensive, too. We are also fans of smaller but highly customizable 2015 Mini Cooper S, which was recently redesigned and offers high-tech features you can not get oriented in the GTI. The 2015 Subaru WRX is a good option if you want all-wheel drive. Whatever your personal preferences hot hatch, however, well-rounded excellence IMT should deserve a place on your short list must-see.
2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Driving Impressions
2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn lives up to its heritage hot hatch with precise handling and steering, brisk acceleration and engine and exhaust note rather stout. They are best exploited in a narrow, winding road mountain where the GTI playfully limited curb to curb, all while instilling a lot of confidence conductor.
Either the slick manual or DSG shift, in charge of the automated manual transmission is a good choice. Especially compared to traditional machines, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn DSG is fast and smooth, and downshifts are rev matched with perfection. However, we found that DSG can be frustratingly slow to respond to your posts gas pedal when you want to accelerate quickly from a stop or are rolling along high traffic.
Perhaps in search of VW for greater handling precision, the GTI has lost some of its comfort march seal used to be a daily driver so attractive. The rough pavement, the GTI can be quite hard. Competitors like the Ford Focus ST and Subaru WRX provide an equally exciting driving experience and have a slightly better ride quality. We still have to drive a 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn with all-season tires or optional adaptive suspension.
