The first-of-a-kind 2-door hatch by Volkswagen has finally hit the Indian roads. Limited to just 99 units, it is literally a Limited Edition.

The body of the VW GTI is light which in turn offers better performance. Although the front fascia is similar looking to the Polo, it comes with updated features and the styling is of course, different. Dual exhaust chrome pipes along with the sporty look, add to the dimension of the vehicle. Other features are of course the LED headlights, new bumpers and the honeycomb grille which we all recognize. Red brake callipers, aero kit and 17inch alloy wheels are contained within as well.

There are five colour options available which are – Black, Pure White, Deep Black, Reflex Silver, Flash Red, Blue Silk and Oryx White.

The inside too is lavish and wears a new steering wheel, comes with sports seats with contrast red stitching on the new upholstery, infotainment system and aluminium pedals. To enhance your driving experience, there are 6 airbags, reverse parking camera and climate control.

Featuring a 1.8L TSI engine which produces 189BHP and a torque of 250Nm at peak, this engine comes linked to a 7-speed DSG that returns about 8kmpl. This can easily achieve 0-100 in a whopping 7.2 seconds with a top speed of 233kmph. Not just this, there are two driving modes – sport and comfort, adjust them according to your liking or need.

In its literal sense, it is indeed one of the fastest hatchbacks ever! And it makes its way to India the CBU way and the automaker is seeing to that auto aficionados take note of this!
