The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI–covered in GoPro cameras

The all-new 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI is finally hitting U.S. dealerships, and with it comes the performance and style we’ve come to expect from the iconic hatchback as well as all kinds of upgrades, including a more powerful yet more fuel efficient engine and an overall lighter, safer, and bigger car.

The new 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI has enough space to comfortably carry five adults and still more trunk space left over to beat any U.S. midsize sedan. Under the hood, it’s got the EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injected TSI® four-cylinder engine, which produces 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque—10 hp and 51 lb-ft more than the previous generation.

“I am an avid mountain biker, and the 2015 GTI has the cargo space I need for all my gear, combined with awesome performance and a more sophisticated interior design,” said Karoly Gyetvai, one of the first new Golf GTI owners.

As a thank you, Volkswagen gave Gyetvai a $500 Shell gas card as well as a GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition camera to help him capture and share his adventures. Now that’s something we love to see automakers doing! But that’s not all—Volkswagen will also offer free GoPro cameras to customers who purchase or lease the new 2015 Golf GTI by June 30, 2014.
