More speed and power with new Volkswagen Golf GTI

Previous owners of a Volkswagen Golf GTI can now see a vehicle offering more in the way of speed and power with the newest addition to the range.

New Car Net reveals that the latest Mk VI version of the Golf GTI is "faster, sharper and more powerful than any standard GTI before it".

This is supported by the inclusion of an advanced 2.0-litre engine, featuring changes such as an improved oil pump and modified pistons.

The engine also helps to boost power, with motorists now able to accelerate to 62 miles per hour from still in 6.9 seconds.

Volkswagen has also made moves to support the environment, with the amount of CO2 generated reduced to 170g/km and fuel economy has been improved to 38.7 miles to the gallon.

Meanwhile, owners can benefit from the inclusion of a range of safety features, such as ABS, while seven airbags are fitted in all, one of which is a knee airbag included for the first time.

According to Volkswagen, the newest Golf is the "safest, quietest and most luxurious" ever built.
