GTI, Grand Touring Injection Part 3
Let’s Talk Features
I am sitting in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn edition and this hatchback has some incredible features. Let’s start out with the paddle shifters on the steering wheel. These work just the same as the Tiptronic Automatic transmission, except now they are an edition to the DSG transmission. Shifting with these, gives the driver more control over the entire driving experience. The control and fun of a manual drive, wrapped in a performance automatic transmission. Couple these paddle shifters with the controls that you have over the radio, phone and car systems, and you have the most incredible driving experience ever.
But, one of the most incredible features to come out in the past 10 years is, App-Connect. There is no doubt in my mind, or anyone else’s, that the cell phone has become the most important aspect of the modern person’s life. Volkswagen has found a way to integrate the smart phone of today, with today’s automobile. With App-Connect, your smart phone apps are displayed on the info-tainment screen. Your music apps work seamlessly with the car’s audio and your text messages are read to you over the speaker system. No more worries about texting and driving.
The Volkswagen GTI truly is an incredible vehicle. The Autobahn package on this car is a fantastic way to enjoy this car, as well, and I haven’t even spoken about the panoramic sunroof. Come to Midlands Volkswagen today and test drive the VW GTI and see what all of the talk is about.
