Volkswagen Golf GTI Updated In 2023 With IQ.DRIVE
Meet the 2023 refreshed Golf GTI, now equipped with IQ.DRIVE
This feature is an innovative Driver Assistance System (DAS) that was not made available before in the 2022 Golf GTI.
Meanwhile, the added features include wireless charging and an embroidered GTI logo on the front seats and more. So, how much does this revised GTI with IQ.DRIVE cost?
Interestingly, this new Golf GTI with IQ.DRIVE has a recommended retail price of RM244,990 which will raise many questions from die hard fans who remember the previous 2022 price to be RM211,689 only.
While there are so many new features in the new Volkswagen Golf GTI, such as the new fully digital 10.25 inch driver display with 3D navigation, new stylish and sporty exterior and so on, the standout feature has to be the new IQ. Drive system which is designed to assist drivers in making their journeys safer and more comfortable.
Moreover, safety features on the new Volkswagen Golf GTI include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) which uses radar and various sensors to detect vehicles ahead, as well as Side Assist which acts as an active blind spot monitor, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert which warns drivers of potential danger when the reverse gear is engaged.
Known as the ultimate hot hatchback, the Volkswagen Golf GTI lives up to its legacy by now offering a whole host of upgraded interior and exterior features such as new fog lights, adjustable folding mirrors and an additional centre airbag bringing the total number of airbags in the car to 7.
On top of that, the new Volkswagen Golf GTI with IQ.DRIVE is powered by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine making 245PS of power and 370Nm of torque paired to a 7-speed DSG transmission and the car runs on 18 inch alloy wheels and comes with a Front Differential Lock too.
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI also comes in five stylish colours including Kings Red and Atlantic Blue in a metallic finish, Moonstone Grey in a non-metallic finish and Deep Black as well as Oryx White which come in a pearl effect. One can enjoy all of these colours at no additional cost, which I feel should be the standard.
