Volkswagen Golf GTI three-door from local Mk7 line-up

The Volkswagen Golf GTI will be exclusively as a five-door model in following confirmation from the division that it has axed the body style.

Volkswagen broke the news of the three-door’s on its Facebook page while the new Mk7 Golf GTI, which in showrooms next month.

Australia communications general Karl Gehling told the decision to drop the three-door was a of rationalising the range and an acknowledgement of the popularity of the five-door variant.

The three-door offered GTI fans a entry point into the hot-hatch, with its $38,990 on-road costs starting undercutting the five-door by $1500, CarAdvice understands the three-door for only about five per of total Australian Golf GTI

The news follows CarAdvice’s report from earlier month that revealed the new Golf GTI would cost driveaway in six-speed manual and $50,700 driveaway with the ‘DSG’ dual-clutch automatic.

The new represents a hike of a few thousand over the outgoing five-door, costs $40,490 as a manual and with the DSG (both before costs).

VW are at a kind of crossroads in Australia, and I that the success of the Golf has made VW Australia think in terms, much like thinks about Camrys. is a danger in this; there are now so Golfs on the road, that a Golf’ has nothing of the prestige it had 20 years ago. Other from Europe and Asia now closed the gap, so somebody for a stylish small car now has plenty of
