On the Inside

As a first, the GTi also now features their premium Dynaudio Excite Surround sound system

There is generally a sense of practicality and familiarity, with a car which delivers very good legroom for both front and rear passengers, supportive seats (especially for those in the front). The driver’s seat benefits from electric adjusters with memory for three, and that all-important lumbar support.

Interior build quality is brilliant, which is one of the hallmarks of a Golf, but with loads of high quality piano black surfaces going on, you might want to pack a soft cloth somewhere inside the car for an occasional panel wipe-down. But overall, the Golf does deliver well with the goods on the inside, like how you might expect cars one market segment above.

While some, like me might lament the disappearance of analogue dials within the instrument binnacle, the digital Active Info Display (AID), featuring a 12.3 inch colour screen more-than makes up for the lack of the visual mechanical link the dials gave, and they do provide you with crucial info like a large digital reading for your speed, SatNav display or even very clearly what drive mode and gear you’re in. Quite similar to how Audi has been doing theirs.

A new Discover Pro infotainment system takes the place of the old unit, and now features gesture control. The GTi gets a 9.2 inch glass screen, and benefits from 5 nifty capacitive touch buttons sited along the left side of the screen. Unlike the one found in say, the BMW 5 Series, the Volkswagen unit only recognises left/right swiping hand gestures, but can still be tied in to quite a number of applications. The new user interface is highly customisable, with users able to arrange their widgets to suit their operating needs. Connectivity through Apple and Android phones are standard, but as a plus, users are able to even able to key in destinations via their mobiles to the infotainment system, via the car’s mobile WiFi hotspot. Additionally, all audio and video inputs can also be controlled by mobile device.

As a first, the GTi also now features their premium Dynaudio Excite Surround sound system, with 8 speakers within the car, and a subwoofer neatly slotted into the space saver spare wheel in the boot.

And speaking about the boot, space is respectable with 380 litres and a flat adjustable floor. A low boot lip, together with the boot floor which is not too far away from the lip, helps to make loading and unloading easy. Drop the 40:60 style folding rear seats, and the extended cargo room is good for 1,270 litres.
