Keen pricing for hot Golf

Wheels24 managing editor John Oxley is on the launch of the Golf GTI and he will give his impressions of the car on Tuesday.

However, in the meantime we can tell you what the price tag is for the GTI. The GTI, with a six-speed manual gearbox, will retail for a keen R240 000, and if you want the car with VW's DSG gearbox you can ad R12 000 to the price.

Under the bonnet of VW's hottest new hatch is a 2-litre FSI turbo engine with a power output of 147 kW. The GTI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.2 seconds and its top speed is 235 km/h.
