What’s New on the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI?

An Overview of the New Features Coming to the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI

As one of the longest-tenured hatchbacks on the world market, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is a model fit for performance. Despite its small stature, the model is big on acceleration and fun. Plus, several improvements could be coming to the upcoming 2022 rendition. While the model won’t be available in the United States until later in 2021, Elgin Volkswagen investigates what features may be coming to the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI.

Possible Performance Upgrades for the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI

One rumor surrounding the 2022 Volkswagen GTI is an enhanced powertrain option. The 2021 VW Golf GTI offers a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged engine – producing up to 228 horsepower. However, the 2022 model may offer more. This comes in a potential 245 horsepower inside an enhanced engine. The 17-horsepower increase could improve the model’s 0-60 times as well. Those specifications can be observed in the current European model. This means that exact figures and features may be different upon an official announcement.

However, the model may add a Travel Assist Safety Feature, which pairs the adaptive cruise control option with lane control capabilities to maximize long-distance exhaustion from drivers. Meanwhile, minor exterior detailing will be upgraded to provide a fresher look for the model. Drive Modes may also be available with certain powertrain combinations to optimize your drive experience. Other enhanced features that may be arriving include:

  • Dual Digital Displays as Standard
  • Redesigned Dashboard
  • Plaid Upholstery Option
