text size: A- A+
The Mk7 Golf GTI has finally made it to this market and to celebrate, VW Australia sent it out for a test drive on roads that included many of the famous Targa Tasmania's racing stages.
The new GTI is only available as a 5-door and it's a AU$10,000 markup on the most expensive Golf, the 110TDI Highline. For $45,988, you do get a new and much more efficient 2.0 TSI 220 PS engine with BlueMotion technology. But if you want DSG, expect to pay at least $48,566.
Standard kit is good, with 7 airbags, autonomous braking, 18-inch Austin alloy wheels and Discover Media audio and satellite navigation system.
