Volkswagen Philippines, the official importer and distributor of Volkswagen vehicles in the country, is offering a new variant of the Golf GTS (Grand Touring Sport) wagon — the Golf GTS Highline. Originally introduced in May 2017, the Golf GTS wagon carries the DNA of the original Golf and is aimed at customers looking for the performance of a Golf with the versatility and comfort of a wagon.
The Golf GTS Highline is powered by the familiar 4-cylinder, in-line 2.0 TDI diesel engine coupled to a 6-speed DSG transmission system, and generates 148 hp and class-leading maximum torque of 340 Nm.
On the outside, features specific to the Highline variant are 17-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, and fog lamps with static cornering lights.
Creature comforts include rain sensing wipers, two-way power adjustable backrest with manual lumbar front seats, keyless entry/exit, and a leather three-spoke steering wheel with paddle shifters and multifunction buttons. An updated 6.5-inch Composition Media touchscreen and infotainment system with the usual Bluetooth connectivity also includes App Connect with voice control, and a Fender sound system with 8 speakers and subwoofer.
The Golf GTS Highline is being offered at a starting price of P1,340,000, until pre-excise tax stocks last. The available exterior colors are Black, Blue Silk, Night Blue Metallic, Platinum Grey, Pure White, Reflex Silver, Tornado Red, and Tungsten Silver, while interior color options are Titan Black and Beige.
