The new, 3 door Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 is a more hardcore version of the regular mark 7.5 GTI. The PE1 has an uprated version of the regular GTI’s 2.0L turbo-4 EA888 engine producing 180kW and 370Nm – delivered by a 7 speed DSG from the MK7.5 Golf R. The GTI PE1 also receives a locking front differential and larger brakes from the previous 5 door GTI Performance.
Apart from performance upgrades, the GTI PE1 has 19-inch Brescia wheels seen on the GTI 40 Years, fleece upholstery, LED tail lights and a heap of advanced safety features and aids. In addition, the PE1 is only available in White Silver Metallic and Dark Iron Blue Metallic (seen in thumbnail).
