We are proud to announce the 2015 Volkswagen GTI Arriving Soon in Tacoma. The newest GTI model adds more standard equipment with tantalizing new optional features. If you are in the market for a seventh-generation Golf GTI which is bigger, lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient, than the 2015 GTI is sure to impress. Powering the legendary hatchback is a newer and more powerful 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that now puts out 210 hp (ten more than the current GTI model). All that power is still fed through the front wheels and helping keep traction on the road is a six-speed manual transmission that comes standard, with an optional six-speed dual-clutch automated manual (DSG). Volkswagen is estimating the new GTI will improve its fuel economy rating by three mpg, which would bring it up to 34 mpg.
The 2015 Volkswagen GTI Arriving Soon in Tacoma will be offered in two trim levels and they are the SE and Autobahn. Not much information has been released on what each trim level will include, but expect features to carry over from previous model years. Features like 18″ alloy wheels, a rear roof spoiler, foglights, heated outside mirrors, heated washer nozzles, a trip computer, air-conditioning, heated front sport seats, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and an eight-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The 2015 Golf GTI is 2.2 inches longer and 0.5 inches wider than the current car. It is also 1.1 inches lower, which benefits both aerodynamic performance and the car’s proportions. The interior package has been optimized to give 0.6 inches more rear-seat legroom and 1.2 inches of additional shoulder room in the back. The trunk is approximately 30 percent larger than in the car it replaces.
Available later in the year, the Performance Package will become available and includes: larger front and rear brakes, a torque-sensing electronically-controlled limited-slip differential, and a 10 hp boost over the regular GTI. A Lighting Package will also be available and offers bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and the Adaptive Front-lighting system. Also look for the GTI SE package that adds more standard equipment like a power tilt and slide sunroof, keyless access with push-button start, a rearview camera, automatic headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and leather seating surfaces.
