Volkswagen Kuwait presents the new Golf GTI

Behbehani Motors has announced the arrival of the most iconic hatchback in automotive history at the Volkswagen showrooms in Kuwait. The new Golf GTI features an enhanced design, new assistance systems and a new generation infotainment system.

The new Golf GTI was presented through an iconic display during the media event held in The Avenues mall.

Abdullah Ali, General Manager Volkswagen, Behbehani Motors, “The Golf GTI is progressive in its design, with an agile daily drive that excites. The new model offers all new technology and safety features that set the bar within its segment. Our customers can enjoy technology such as gesture control – a first for hot hatch models in the region.”

He continued, “Furthermore, beyond a powerful daily drive, the safety features offered in the new Golf GTI set benchmarks in its class – drivers behind the wheel of a GTI on the roads of Kuwait can enjoy five star Euro NCAP safety rating, thanks to the innovative safety features such as front assist emergency brakes, blind spot sensors and German Engineering”.

The new Golf GTI is powered by an additional 10 HP and a refined design. The progressive model offers gesture control for the Discover Pro infotainment system, a first in the compact class. With a 9.2-inch touchscreen in button-free tablet style and a 12.3-inch Active Info Display that replaces the conventional speedometer, the new Golf is a class apart.

From the exterior, the iconic hatchback features a newly designed crisper front-end with LED daytime running lights, as well as a modified rear, adding to its stature on the road. Optional full-LED headlights that replace the previously xenon headlights in the Golf give the car an especially distinctive look.

It is also safer than ever. The new Golf features new assistance systems such as pedestrian monitoring of the Front Assist emergency braking system, a revised occupant protection system that closes all windows when sensing an imminent collision and a blind spot sensor. Making the Golf one of the most attractive hatchbacks in the market.
