2017 VW Golf GTI Beaverton Portland OR
You'd have to travel back to 2002 to return to a time when Nelly dominated the pop charts with his hit song, "Hot in Herre," but we are talking about the "hot hatch," the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Plus, it's been nearly that long since the VW Golf line did not make Car and Driver magazine's "10Best" list. Volkswagen Golf vehicles, including the Golf GTI, have made that prestigious list for 11 straight years now. But how is that possible? We hope you're not surprised when we say: We'll tell you.
It all starts – at least visually – with the 2017 Golf GTI's black honeycomb-shaped front grille, a visual that pops on a car that is the ideal blend of style and substance. While the 2017 Golf GTI is a hatchback, it has more power and cargo room than most hatchback cars on the market, with 210 horsepower in its base trim level and 220 HP in its top-line trims. That's enough engine power to easily handle all the bags and equipment you'll be able to fit in back – up to 52.7 cubic feet worth. That's almost 400 gallons of space.
|Base Trim Option: 210 HP||Seats five||VW Car-Net App-Connect|
|Performance Trims: 220 HP||52.7 cubic feet for cargo||Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)|
|24 mpg city, 34 mpg highway||93.5 cubic feet for passengers||Passenger Occupant Detection (PODS)|
|35.8-foot turning circle||Available leather accents for steering wheel, illuminated door sills||Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)|
Heat Up the Road with the Hot Hatchback – the 2017 VW Golf GTI - Near Portland OR
When we say the 2017 VW Golf GTI is the ideal blend of style and substance, we mean it. While we've already covered the nice power and cargo room, you also get 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway in the 2017 Golf GTI. That's the fuel savings of a smaller car combined with the cargo versatility of an SUV. And we're not nearly finished, as the 2017 Golf GTI has great tech features like the Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS).
What ICRS does is make it easier for you to get out of your car in the unfortunate event of a crash while also making it easier for emergency workers to assist you and your passengers. If a crash happens, ICRS unlocks the GTI's doors for an easy exit, turns on the interior lights so you can see better, and disables the fuel pump to stop a potential fire. The 2017 GTI's Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) decelerates your 2017 Golf GTI if you're on cruise and you get too close to the vehicle in front of you, keeping you safer.
