2024 VW Golf GTI Owner's Manual

The original Golf GTI debuted in 1975, setting the trend in the world of sporty supercharged hatchbacks. Standing on the assembly line for 48 years, the car retained its signature style and a certain authenticity of design, paying tribute to the version of the car that was revolutionary at the time.

The 2024 VW Golf GTI will be distinguished by an external facelift and an updated interior. However, the most important change for the company in the modification of the car will be that models with a manual transmission will be discontinued. The VAG auto concern had to introduce such changes in connection with the regulation of international legislation on carbon dioxide emissions, since the version on the mechanics exceeds the permissible emission standards.

With this in mind, the automaker has announced the latest 2024 Golf GTI 380 facelift package for models with manual transmissions.

The GTI version is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The motor is equipped with a turbocharging system and has a power of 241 hp. The power unit is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission or the latest six-speed manual transmission for the EA888 engine series, which Volkswagen has been equipping its cars with since 2007. Technically, the engine has not undergone any changes and is already installed on the car with the standard DCC adaptive damping system.
