2018 VW Golf GTI D'iberville MS
There are a lot of people excited for the long-awaited return of the Golf, but there's an even bigger line waiting to catch a glimpse of the 2018 VW Golf GTI as it approaches D'iberville, MS. Much like the Golf, customers can expect to find those same features and technology systems in the GTI, but with a stronger engine that takes the excitement of the Golf family to an entirely separate level.
The 2018 VW Golf GTI is awoken by a 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged and direct-injection engine that channels 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This surplus of power can be commanded by either a standard six-speed manual transmission (6MT) or an optional six-speed DSG automatic transmission (6AT) that also includes a new Start-Stop System that helps to save fuel.
When guided by the 6MT, the 2018 VW Golf GTI earns 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, as estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency. For those who'd rather opt for the 6AT, they can expect to trail a bit behind with 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
