2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Tampa FL

When it comes to a fan favorite, only the Beetle can compete against the Golf GTI. The original hot hatch is just as easy to customize and personalize, but it has a lot more power to make every trip exciting. Some might say the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI, available in Tampa FL at Brandon Volkswagen, offers understated style, but fans have long appreciated it for the way this simple model offers big surprises.

Volkswagen continues to innovate year-after-year, and the 2018 model year is no different. Though the VW Golf GTI isn’t up for a refresh quite yet, it still offers a host of new features that focus on increasing style, power and entertainment behind the wheel. Plenty of new options, including an available driver assistance package, also provide convenience and safety behind the wheel.

Even more GTI for your money

One particularly noteworthy adjustment for the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI is that the model offers up standard 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, so those who are most concerned with performance over tech features aren’t forced to upgrade. The model has also been paired down to only the most popular trims: S, SE and Autobahn. Each trim is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic, so you aren’t held back by limited choices.

New features to watch out for include a boost to the touchscreen infotainment system, which is now a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen, or an eight-inch touchscreen at SE and Autobahn trim levels. Other features include standard LED taillights and DRLs, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, interior ambient lighting and more. A new start-stop feature also helps sip fuel as it shuts the engine off while at a stop and restarts it automatically when you press the gas.
