The new MIB II infotainment system provides better smartphone connectivity in the GTI
WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — If there’s ever a time when new car shoppers face the greatest debate at dealership lots, it’s during the short period when the new model year is just coming out, but the previous models haven’t quite left the showroom. At Eastside Volkswagen customers will find both the 2015 and 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI models are presently available, creating conflict as the choice must be made between great savings on models priced to sell, versus the pull of the latest and greatest in features. Staff members at Eastside Volkswagen aim to make the decision easier by offering more details on these models at the dealership website.
While 2016 is a rollover year for Volkswagen, meaning not many differences have been made as far as design or mechanical specifications on models across the lineup, there are a few key features that will appeal to drivers seeking the most innovation. One primary feature that has been receiving attention for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI is the standard MIB II infotainment system which is all-new for this model year. The system will not only feature better graphics, a larger 6.5-inch screen and a faster processor, but will also work with the VW Car-Net App-Connect features to bring Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink integration into the GTI, making important smartphone application such as navigation and radio apps widely available to drivers regardless of the cellphone brand or operating system.
Safety features have also received greater attention for the new model year. A rearview camera will now be a standard feature on the GTI, which is an upgrade that can be expected across the Golf family as Volkswagen aims to increase rear visibility in more of its vehicles. The driver assistance package will also offer advanced safety features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Parking Steering Assistance, which Volkswagen has upgraded in an effort to democratize driver assistance features that are too often considered premium. Volkswagen has received a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for models equipped with the driver assistance package, showing that the features are effective in preventing accidents.
