Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Golf GTD's interior is almost identical to the GTI's, only that it's finished in various hues of grey rather than the petrol car's red highlights – so it's no surprise that the car feels special inside.

The leather-trimmed multi-function sports steering wheel is a joy to use and looks great, as does the golf ball-effect gearknob (on manual versions).

All GTDs get a standard 8.0in colour touchscreen that is easy to use and makes a good focal point for the dashboard. Just as we've found in lesser Golfs, the system offers plenty of connectivity options, even though it has a few annoying foibles, such as bringing up extra, smaller icons when it senses a finger approaching.

An optional system, called Discover Navigation Pro, brings a larger 9.2in screen and includes gesture control, which allows you to scroll through menus and change radio stations or playlists using mid-air hand movements. This gimmick doesn't work very well, though, and the larger-screened system is expensive, so we wouldn't bother.
