What Is GTI & How Does It Work?

If GTI technology sounds familiar, that’s because it was originally implemented on the 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI model over 40 years ago. The new direct fuel injection system was made to improve long-distance driving without compromising performance and capability, allowing drivers from Winona and beyond to go for the long haul with confidence. The GTI system was originally tested on Gran Turismo Italian models, but it was eventually used for the Volkswagen Golf. It wasn’t long afterward that this technology became more common across the other manufacturers in the automotive industry.

With a direct fuel injection system, the Volkswagen Golf GTI can burn fuel more efficiently, resulting in the following:

  • More power
  • Cleaner emissions
  • Increased fuel economy
