The Golf GTI is available in six exterior colors: Atlantic Blue Metallic, Kinds Red Metallic, Reflex Silver Metallic, Deep Black Pearl, Oryx White, and Moonstone Gray. These colors vary from metallic to pearlescent topcoats to provide a dynamic and beautiful appearance while the car is in motion.

Improved Horsepower

The Golf GTI features a 2-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque, making the new model more powerful in addition to being sleeker. The Golf GTI also has a standard six-speed manual transmission with the option to upgrade to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The automatic transmission has smart shifts and can deliver the GTI to 60 mph in around five seconds. This is a major improvement over the previous model.

Fuel Efficiency

The hatch body rides on a set of 18-inch wheels, with some trims offering an upgrade to 19-inch wheels. The fuel efficiency is estimated to be around 24 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway. It’s a good car for city driving, with its efficient fuel record, quick handling, and spacious hatch design. You can transport a family, some equipment, or just yourself around the curves and bends of your local city or highway.

Interior Features

The interior features of the 2022 Volkswagen pickup are more modern and include top-notch technology for easy control while driving. Here are some other unique interior features of this awesome vehicle.

Infotainment Options

The dashboard contains two large displays. Behind the steering wheel, the driver can easily see a 10.3-inch gauge cluster that includes a speedometer, gas tank reading, and mileage reading. The digital screen creates an easy-to-read display in low light or bright sunlight. It also makes it easier for the driver to locate specific readings when they need them.

In the center of the console is the 10-inch touch screen that controls most of the infotainment options in the car. From this touch screen, you can control the music in the car, look at directions, and field any calls or messages you may receive without looking away from the road. It’s easily reachable from the driver’s side or the front passenger’s side. The background of both screens makes the icons easier to read.

Comfort and Convenience Behind the Wheel

In addition to these modern screens, the steering wheel still contains touch-sensitive controls, which makes controlling the elements of your drive much easier for the driver. They don’t even have to shift their hands from the stylish three-spoke steering wheel.

The 2022 Golf GTI has a lower cowl than the previous models, letting the driver see more of the road ahead. Its wheelbase is also stretched a little more than the previous models, creating more room for passenger accommodations and cargo space. Throughout the cabin, there are a couple of charging ports, and the center console has pairing capabilities with your phone, allowing you to control phone calls and music hands-free.

Classic Colors

The car’s interior details are just as sporty and modern as the new exterior. Its front seats have red accents around the outer edges and iconic plaid inserts at the top and bottom of the cushions. The plaid references earlier designs of the car and lends a little classic style to the interior design.

Safety Features

In addition to the interior design, the car provides some safety features within its programming to improve the safety and control of the vehicle. The GTI contains driver-assistance technology, like emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist features. It also has a backup camera to help with parallel parking.


The 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI comes in three trims. The basic trim is the S, with all the standard features listed above, including a heated steering wheel. The second trim is the SE, which comes with a tilting panoramic sunroof. It also has keyless access and push-button start capabilities, which is a popular feature on newer cars. This trim also features an upgraded audio system and SiriusXM 360L Satellite Radio, allowing you to listen to any genre you want at any time

The highest level trim is the Autobahn, named after the famous roadway in Germany that lacks speed limits. This trim offers heated rear outboard seats, power driver seats with memory, and 19-inch diamond-turned surface alloy wheels. It’s a luxurious car with a few additional technological advances to sweeten the deal. However, the standard Golf GTI is a stylish and capable car, even without the extra bells and whistles.
