GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Late summer and early fall represents one of the most interesting times in the automotive world as new model year vehicles roll into dealerships to replace the current lineup. Now at New Century Volkswagen, located in Glendale, California, one of the most popular models is making its way onto the dealership lot. The 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI is one of the most anticipated options each year as it mixes the practical appeal of the Golf hatchback design with a more powerful engine which boosts the excitement of getting behind the wheel.
As the new model year starts, shoppers are already beginning the research process to discover if the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI is worth the upgrade in comparison to the previous model year. In order to aid in this research, New Century Volkswagen is providing in-depth details on its blog to highlight the new features for the model. Some of the main differences include advancements to the infotainment system and better offerings when it comes to driver assistance features. New for Volkswagen this year is the MIB II infotainment system, which will deliver better smartphone connectivity thanks to VW Car-Net App-Connect features which integrate Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink to offer increased compatibility with smartphones from many manufacturers. The Golf GTI will now also include a rearview camera as a standard feature to ensure increased safety when reversing the vehicle.
The updated driver assistance package for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI will be available for both the SE and Autobahn models and will include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, Park Distance Control and Parking Steering Assistant.

The driving dynamic for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI will remain unchanged for the new year, with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 210 horsepower to the model. The performance package, which boosts the horsepower up to 220, will once again be offered, while the sportier design elements still remain a modern fixture that needs no update.
