New Volkswagen Golf GTI Coming to Australia Only as a 5-Door
text size: A- A+
The new GTI is headed for Australia next month, but a couple of days ago, the company's Facebook page dropped the bomb, saying only the 5-door will be available. No justification was given, but of course only about $500 will be saved on this $45,000-ish car by buying it as a 3-door instead of a 5-door, so very few people actually will.
Of course, the comments on Facebook are filled with angry messages, some of them about DSG problems. But from a marketing point of view you really can't fault VW, especially when you can buy a 200 hp Scirocco if you want a 3-door.
