The ultimate motif for any car brand is to come up with models which prove to be fit for a maximum number of people in the market. However, there are very few of the lot, and Volkswagen GTI Sport is one such brand that proves to fit the purpose for most of the people in the market. With only hand counted models meeting the refinement of GTI, Volkswagen service finally makes it possible to help these vehicles deliver versatile performance that turns out to be a fun drive. Obviously, there are reasons why the GTI Sport turns out to be the most obvious choice, and for 2017, the extra trim level makes the category a near perfect for many.
Sitting just above the S model, the 2017 Volkswagen GTI Sport really matches the lifestyle of a major lot. While the base model seems to be fine, but Volkswagen lovers are used to a complete range of features within, and it actually lacks a couple of those. As the competition gets tougher daily, the base level falls short on multiple grounds, and hence Volkswagen Greensboro NC prefers moving up to the Sports trim for further consideration.
The GTI Sports trim finds a set of Bi-Xenon headlights, the keyless entry with the push button start available in both the transmissions and most importantly the GTI performance package. The moonroof has been avoided, and the navigation system which proved to be outdated in the earlier versions has been completely replaced. As the moonroof has been taken away, the vehicle has automatically lost some weight and that has increased the headroom with lesser complexities as well.
Earlier, Volkswagen Greensboro referred to the leather seats in GTI models, but that didn’t prove to provide ultimate comfort. So the heated tartan patterned seats were incorporated in the latest GTI Sports and enhance the comfort to a great extent. With all these factors being mentioned, the performance of the GTI Sport should not be ignored at all. There’s a bigger break in the Sports than what came in Golf R, which is completely controlled electronically and hence finds better torque sensing as well. There has been a jump in the horsepower as well, but when compared in the light of updates brought for 2018, this is definitely negligible.
The GTI Sports is the only model which combines both the performance package and cloth seats. For those who only keep performance their key factor, there’s no point looking beyond the GTI Sports.
