What is GTI?

Volkswagen first debuted GTI technology over 40 years ago with the 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI. This new direct fuel injection system was made to keep the engine going over the long haul without sacrificing performance and generally making for a more exciting drive. While GTI was initially tested in Italian vehicles, it soon found its way to Germany in the Volkswagen Golf before growing more common across other manufacturers.

Direct fuel injection systems let engines burn their fuel more efficiently, meaning you’ll get the following advantages as you’re headed around Stoughton:
