2012 Volkswagen GTI Review With Exterior And Interior Pics
2012 Volkswagen GTI Review:
The long awaited Volkswagen GTI has received green signal to roll out in 2012. We must say that this newly redesigned hatch is far more practical and fun to drive. The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is getting ready to claim its presence through better performance, fuel economy, driving enhancements, hatchback versatility, and nicely finished exterior and interior work.
This GTI is based on the automaker’s compact version and this 2012 model will receive better upgrades through its suspension, engine, brakes, seats, transmission, and body trim. The 2011 VW GTI didn’t received much change, but its superior technological upgrades are something to talk about.
• Bluetooth comes with an audio streaming and phonebook download.
• Navigation system
• New audio system
• 18 inches wheels
• New smart key system
• LED running lights
• New shift knob
• LED license plate lamps
• New interior trimFrom its 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the GTI makes an output of 200 horsepower. In this place, if we compare its rival Mazda (Mazdaspeed3) which is priced less than this model, 263 horsepower becomes its output which comes from a 2.3 liter turbo four engine. Therefore, performance-wise, the GTI gets weak in front of Mazda. On the other hand,
the GTI’s ride is far more comfortable as well as refined. With 207 pound feet of torque, this car gives better ride even though it is not quicker than its competitor.
In built features of Volkswagen GTI:
• Rubber band tires
• Tight suspension
• Stout brakes
• Big wheels
The all new 2012 Volkswagen GTI comes with a starting price which is a little more than $24,000. This price is set for its three-door version; whereas; the five-door version costs around $25,000.
With added features in the 2012 Volkswagen GTI, the car has become faster and powerful. It also gives better fuel economy at lower price as compared to what its competitors provide. From inside, the manufacturer has strived to put comfort from all sides which we can see through its seat, steering and dash board. The standard version of GTI comes with amazing feature which can be found fitted on the seats. Yes, we can rely on the sporty seats of the car which is equipped with 8-way manual heated feature and the seats are adorned with Interlagos cloth upholstered.
Check out the below given features for this car:
• Power windows and locks
• Climate control
• Fog lights
• Tilt and telescoping steering column
• Heated power mirrors which come with signal repeaters
• wash and wipe at the rear
• Windshield washer nozzles
• Sirius satellite radio
• iPod and MP3 input
• Steering wheel wrapped with leather and shifter
• Advanced Bluetooth
• Trip computer
• Cruise control
• 40/60 split folding rear seat
• 225/40HR18 tires on alloy wheels
• Rear spoiler
Owners have to shell out extra $1,750 if they are interested in buying the sunroof package from Volkswagen. The manufacturer is offering multifunctional steering wheel controls, upgraded stereo with six CD changer and SD card reader through this package.
Sunroof and navigation package:
This package adds extra $3,185 as it is equipped with 5 inches touch screen navigation system as well as new headlights (adaptive bi-Xenon). Well, we cannot resist saying that these two features don’t possess much charm which interest the owners and make them buy this package.
The Autobahn package becomes more expensive out of all the packages that the manufacturer is providing. We must say, the price is elevating and may distract the owners from buying it. This package adds extra $5,315 and features an eight speaker sound system which is a 300 watt Dynaudio. Other than this, the car has V-Tex trim, keyless entry, and pushbutton start to convince its owner. The interior becomes more impressive due to its leather seats which make the car more elegant from inside. It does boast safety features as well such as antilock brakes, front/front side/side curtain airbags, and electronic stability control with traction control.
We get better fuel economy from the 2012 GTI. Besides, the car also gives comfortable ride which is an added advantage. Its hatchback versatility and interior sophistication are two plus points that worth exploring this car.
The major negative point about this car is that the competitors provide faster ride and better handling than the 2012 Volkswagen GTI. Moreover, this car lacks interior storage capacity as well. We get extra space after folding the rear seat of the car.
Considering the EPA of Volkswagen GTI, we are impressed as it gives 21 mpg on city and 31 mpg on highway after wearing a manual gearbox. If we add a DSG transmission then the estimated fuel economy turns to 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. With such fuel economy and advanced features, the car may find a good amount of owners, but the performance may not entice them much if the owners are seeking a striking performance based car.
