Cartelligent takes you on a tour of the features and benefits of the 2015 Volkswagen GTI.


Hi, this is Bryce from Cartelligent. And today, I want to show you a little bit more about the 2015 Volkswagen GTI with Performance Package. 

So here we are in the back seat. What's really nice about the Autobahn Package is that it comes in four doors, and it is exclusive to the four-door, as compared to the two-door, which comes in the S and the SE. One of the things that you get standard in the Autobahn Package is the panoramic sunroof. The panoramic sunroof is a pretty wide piece of glass, and it actually makes the cabin feel open and airy.

A great thing about the hatchback is it does have a pass-through, so you can get back into the back trunk here. If you are a snowboarder or a skier and you want to head up to the mountains, it's great for that.

So here we are in the front of the 2015 GTI. One of the nice things about the GTI is its fit and finish are second to none, all the way from the contrasting stitching on the steering wheel, also on the seats as well. It's just very well put together. So everybody knows with a small car, space is at a premium. The GTI is not lacking in this department. You've got several storage areas where you can hold all of your stuff. 

One of the great features about the GTI is you can set the car for a Sport mode, if you're in the mood; an Individual mode, where you can customize; or a Comfort mode. Two of the features that are exclusive to the Autobahn trim level are the navigation, which is housed in your touchscreen media center here, and the dual automatic climate control, which features individual passenger and driver temperature controls.

One of the other things that I chose on my personal car was this six-speed manual transmission. You can also get this equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission or what's called the DSG, which is a Direct Shift Gearbox.
