Last year, the Volkswagen Golf’s sport performance variant, the GTI, was launched here in the Philippines. This summer the Highline and Comfortline variants expand the Golf family of fun-to-drive hatches available in the country.
Common to both variants are Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), seven airbags, Engine Drag Torque Control (MRS), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) with XDS, and a Regenerative Braking System all come as standard.
Powering both lines is a 1.4-liter TSI Turbo 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a Blue Motion Start/Stop system managed by a 7-speed DSG that produces a maximum output of 150 Ps at 5,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm. This system ensures great fuel efficiency without compromising on the power when you need it most.
Exclusive to the Highline are Bi-Xenon headlamps with headlamp washer and LED daytime running lights, dynamic headlight range adjustment with dynamic cornering lights, and an auto headlight activation with separate daytime running lights
The interior of the Highline variant is highlighted by the “Vienna” leather seats and a Climatronic 2-zone air-conditioning system with rear A/C vent.
The Golf Highline 1.4 TSI DSG is priced at P1,739,000 while the Golf Comfortline 1.4 TSI DSG goes for P1,590,000. Both models are available in the following exterior colors: Pure White, Sunset Red Metallic, Limestone Grey and Deep Black Pearl. Pacific Blue is exclusively available for the Golf Comfortline.
