Top-spec GTI+ models come with the same basic equipment as the standard GTI but add a 10.5-inch digital driver’s display instead of conventional analogue dials, LED headlights, keyless entry and a front central armrest with a built-in storage bin. Also standard are 17-inch alloy wheels, sporty front and rear bumpers, dual-zone climate control, some more supportive sports seats with red tartan trim and an eight-inch touchscreen with smartphone mirroring and sat nav.
