Encore for Golf GTS

2009-08-07 07:03

In the Citi Golf's dying days, VWSA is reviving the legendary GTS moniker for a special, "retro-styled" version. Sad, but true...

The GTS was one of the best selling models of the original Golf range.

With this in mind, VWSA has whipped up a limited edition Citi GTS with a lowered sports suspension, 15-inch alloy wheels in gunmetal grey, GTS decals along the flanks, a grille with red surrounds and double headlamps.

In the cabin, GTS is set apart with its twin sports seats up front, and black and silver trim.

Six exterior colours - Candy White, Summer Blue, Tossa Blue, Tornado Red, Sunset Red and Reflex Silver - are available.

Citi GTS is powered by the 62-kW version of VW's 1.4-litre unit. Peak power is available at 5 500 r/min, while the maximum torque figure is 124 Nm at 4 400 r/min.

Citi GTS comes standard with a three-year/120 000 km warranty, but maintenance and service plans are optional.

Citi GTS costs R102 400 including VAT.
