2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI engine specs and maximum speed

The Golf GTI is a fantastic machine, capable of producing hair-raising levels of punch and kick that we all need from time to time. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged Inline 4 engine that’s capable of producing 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and harnessed by a 6-speed DSG® automatic transmission. This allows you to unleash a reactive and responsive driving that few other vehicles on the road can match!

Now for the fun part; how fast can the 2017 Golf GTI actually go? Due to its strong engine and relatively light curb weight (only around 3,000 pounds) you’ll be treated to some serious acceleration. The Golf GTI can go from 0-60 mph in only 6.2 seconds, and it sprints to a maximum speed of 155 miles per hour with a governor! We of course don’t recommend that you try this at home, but it’s just a small sample of what this model is truly capable of.
