Volkswagen of America has made it clear that it doesn’t want the Golf GTI Edition 35.
Instead, they have been reportedly planning do their own special editions. To them, the GTI is creating very good customer response over there and they don’t need special editions to move it.
The GTI Edition 35 is powered by a revised 2.0 liter TFSI petrol engine (a detuned version of the 2.0 liter TFSI unit in the Golf R) that develops 235 PS (173 kW / 232 hp) – a gain of 25 PS over the 211 PS (155 kW / 207 hp) of the standard GTI.
Volkswagen faced several impediments on the way while introducing the model to United States as being offered in Europe. For instance, sports seats did not meet federal safety standard. Further, the front spoiler which VW of America believed was too low for US roads.
However, the variant is available in markets like Germany carrying a price tag of around €30,425.
