Volkswagen Golf GTD interior

It’s all nicely built, and sporty touches such as the sports seats are present and correct, but does it feel special? Perhaps not.

Style

The new VW Golf GTD’s interior is lovely, because the dashboard and door trims also feature a neat honeycomb design, which emphasises the sporty theme.

A central touchscreen dominates the dashboard, and below it lies a row of touch-sensitive pads. However, these are likely to frustrate as often as they work as intended.. Below these lies a panel that allows you to adjust the car’s drive settings, but this requires too much concentration to hit accurately.

The centre console is quite control-free, and features only a starter button that pulses red, plus a button for the handbrake, and a tiny finger-sized selctor for the DSG automatic gearbox.

Ahead of the driver sits a digital driver’s display in place of conventional dials, which can be configured as you fancy.

The rest of the interior is suitably roomy, and the two front occupants sit on large sports seats, which are trimmed in the traditional tartan, although in the GTD the design is predominantly black and silver.

Infotainment

The Volkswagen Golf GTD has an 8-inch screen front and centre on the dashboard, and beside it is a 10-inch cockpit display.

Both screens respond quickly to inputs, be they by touch or using the buttons on the steering wheel, and the graphics are all sharp and clear.

There’s a strip of touch-sensitive controls beneath the screen that lets you control the cabin temperature and audio system volume. In practice, these can be annoyingly imprecise. Still, there’s a voice-control system to allow you to manage settings, although the similar system in a BMW 1-Series is much better.

You can mirror your phone using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, but only the Apple system allows you to do this wirelessly; you’ll need to plug your Android phone in using a cable.

Both systems allow you to use Google Maps and Waze through the infotainment display.
