New Volkswagen 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI for Sale in West Warwick, RI
New for 2022
The Golf GTI is back and better than ever for 2022, showcasing revamped style, ever more sophisticated technologies, and performance that will keep your adrenaline pump primed. The front view is striking with a low-slung mesh grille that houses X-shaped fog lights; there are also fresh wheel designs, standard puddle lights, and illuminated door handle recesses.
The cabin has, of course, been made over as well, getting heated front seats with bolsters, push-button start/stop, the Digital Cockpit Pro gauge cluster, a multifunctional heated steering wheel with touch controls, and – in the SE and Autobahn trims – a larger panoramic sunroof and a brand-new Harman Kardon sound system. VW has packed in more standard driver-assist technology as well, with adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and lane keeping assist now included across the board.
Its performance has been enhanced as well. Not only has the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine been updated to spark 241 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (that’s 13 hp and 15 lb.-ft. more than its predecessor), but the car’s vehicle dynamics system – which controls the electronic differential lock, electronically controlled and torque-sensing limited-slip differential, and optional adaptive suspension dampers – has also been reconditioned to improve handling and agility.
Trims and Performance
The most thrilling model Volkswagen has to offer comes in three trim levels: S, SE, and Autobahn. Their nerve center is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making the aforementioned 241 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. As a true driving enthusiast’s machine, it gets a standard six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is available. According to the EPA, the stickshift version gets 24 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the highway. When outfitted with the dual-clutch, the Golf GTI returns 25 city/34 highway.
The all-new 2022 Golf GTI has plenty to brag about, starting with its well-stocked base trim. The S gets a heated leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, ambient interior lighting with a choice of 30 colors, wireless phone charging, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic climate control, LED headlights and fog lights, heated side mirrors (with position memory) and washer nozzles, puddle lights, rain-sensing wipers, push-button start/stop, various USB ports (four USB-C, two data, and 2 charging), Digital Cockpit Pro (10.25-inch digital gauge cluster). The seats uphold the Golf GTI tradition of plaid cloth upholstery, and they’re heated and bolstered in front.
The SE introduces enhanced fog lights with low-speed corner illumination, an LED light bar that’s integrated with the grille, illuminated door handle recesses, a panoramic sunroof, and keyless entry. The optional SE Leather Seat Package will add leather upholstery with a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory and ventilated front seats. The high-end Autobahn packs in those available amenities as standard, along with 19-inch wheels on summer performance tires, adaptive suspension dampers, tri-zone automatic climate control with rear-seat settings, heated rear outboard seats, and a head-up display.
Infotainment and Safety
The infotainment system that comes in the S trim has an 8.25-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Android Auto, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The SE and Autobahn upgrade to the Discover Pro multimedia system, which gets a 10-inch touchscreen with voice recognition, navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio (with a 3-month complimentary trial subscription), and a Harman Kardon premium nine-speaker audio system.
For safety tech, the S has front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian/cyclist monitoring, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control (automatic transmission models only). The SE adds a dynamic road sign display, while the Autobahn gets parking assist and automatic high beams.
