2019 VW Golf GTI turbo engine

Power in perfect balance

The “EA888” 2.0L turbocharged engine in the Golf GTI has an impressive 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car to 100 km/h in as little as 6.2 seconds.* With a broad power band, you’ll enjoy instant response everywhere from city streets to winding country roads. The standard “VAQ” electronically-controlled limited slip differential helps puts the driver in full control with sure-footed traction even in challenging conditions.

†Please drive safely and obey all traffic laws, including speed limits.

Mechanical limited-slip differential

The Vorderachsquersperre (or VAQ) is a torque-sensing, electro-hydraulic limited slip differential that’s electronically controlled for ultimate precision. Working in concert with the Golf GTI’s Vehicle Dynamics Manager, VAQ controls torque distribution across the front axle. When accelerating out of a corner or in slippery conditions, power can be precisely shifted left-and-right for improved traction and path control.

App-Connect

App-Connect† integrates the smartphone apps that you need most on the road into your Volkswagen using Apple CarPlay® for iPhone®, or Android Auto™ for Android™ smartphones. That means you can control your apps with your voice or right from the infotainment screen.
