2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cleveland OH
If there’s one model that remains the most popular among Volkswagen enthusiasts, it’s the Golf GTI. This vehicle not only has a sporty exterior which continues to dominate among other hot hatch options, but it has the engine to hold up the impression the design creates. If style and power aren’t enough, the interior also has the premium feel VW has built its name upon. Essentially, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI in Cleveland OH is a well-rounded option that only improves with each new model year.
Having undergone a redesign just last year, not much has changed when it comes to the exterior of the Golf GTI. From the honeycomb grille to the red-painted brake calipers, the style holds strong as a stylish option which continually turns heads. It isn’t all looks and no fun with the GTI, either. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivers big with 200 horsepower and 258 pound feet of torque to get the model moving. Opt for the Performance Package for even more power and added performance parts.
If performance isn’t your number one priority, there’s little reason to be looking into a GTI. This model delivers 210 horsepower from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. If that isn’t enough, the Performance Package boosts the horsepower up to 220 and adds on performance brakes.
While a new USB port has been a long awaited feature, it’s not the most exciting offering for the newest Golf GTI. The 6.5-inch MIB II infotainment system is standard on all trim levels, bringing with it the App-Connect features which allow integration with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
Fuel Economy Despite having a potent engine, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI is surprisingly efficient at sipping fuel. The base engine delivers an EPA-estimated 24 city and 34 highway mpg rating, which is impressive for a model as speedy as the GTI. The fuel economy is also not reduced by the performance package.

Between the driving style and the appearance of the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI, it’s hardly a wonder the model is one of the most popular available from VW. The fact that you can get behind a sporty vehicle without breaking the bank doesn’t hurt either. The four-door S trim is available at a starting MSRP of only $25,595, for which the standard features aren’t too shabby. The most notable new standard feature is the 6.5-inch MIB II infotainment system, which features a capacitive touchscreen that responds much like a smartphone or tablet, allowing for simple gesture controls. It also brings the App-Connect functions with it, allowing for increased connectivity with smartphones. Basically, the navigation, radio and news apps you already rely upon are brought directly to the head unit.
Other standard features in the GTI include LED foglights, Bluetooth with audio streaming, a rearview camera, driving mode selection, ambient door trim accent lighting and heated front seats.
