Vehicle History For Petrol Heads
The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016 was a milestone model for VW, and it has an interesting history. It was originally released in Germany in June of 2015, as a special edition variant of the 7th generation Golf GTI, marking the 40th anniversary of the first GTI model.
Designed to be an even higher-performance variant of the already popular GTI, the Clubsport featured several upgrades beyond the standard version. The turbocharged 2.0L engine was boosted to 261 hp and a maximum torque of 273 lb-ft. The 6 speed manual transmission was upgraded with shorter gear ratios which improved acceleration time by 0.3 seconds, and also enabled drivers to reach higher speeds more quickly.
The chassis was also reworked over the standard version with multi-link rear suspension so that it could handle substantially more power output without any significant stability problems.
A new sound system was added as well, a 400 watt 10 speaker system with 8 channels that included two subwoofers in order to deliver crisp sound quality from inside the car.
In addition to all these technical upgrades, aesthetics were given a boost with sports seats covered in Alcantara leather and bold red stitching on all surfaces throughout the interior cabin for a much more luxurious look and feel than what could be found on other models at the time.
Finally, what truly made this celebration model stand out is its amazing performance figures with 0-62 mph achieved in just 6 seconds flat and a top speed of 155 mph (limited electronically).
This made it one of the quickest cars on the market at the time and cemented its place among VW enthusiasts as one of their most beloved GTIs ever produced.
The Golf GTI Clubsport 2016 remains an icon among Volkswagens to this day and holds up incredibly well when compared to more modern versions of other vehicles on the market today due to its unique combination of high-performance stats combined with classic design elements from decades ago.
Despite being five years since its release, many people continue to praise this vehicle as one of VW’s most successful models ever, even today!
