The 2024 Volkswagen Golf GTI hot hatch is now cheaper and is loaded with more equipment as standard, but only until the end of the financial year.

    Until June 30, the Volkswagen Golf GTI will be priced from $59,990 drive-away across Australia.

    This price includes the $4000 Luxury package and $2600 Sound and Style package, which normally increase the Golf GTI’s drive-away price to between $66,604 (ACT) and $69,703 (WA) – representing savings of $6614 to $9713.

    State/territoryStandard drive-away price (incl. option packs)
    New South Wales$67,980
    Western Australia$69,703
    South Australia$67,822
    Australian Capital Territory$66,604
    Northern Territory$67,345
    Nationwide (until June 30)$59,990

    The Luxury package adds: 

    • ‘Vienna’ leather upholstery
    • Heated and ventilated front seats
    • Power driver’s seat with memory
    • Heated steering wheel
    • Panoramic glass sunroof

    The Sound and Style package includes: 

    • 19-inch alloy wheels
    • Head-up display
    • Harman/Kardon nine-speaker sound system

    Without these two option packs included, the Golf GTI’s standard drive-away price ranges from $59,872 (ACT) to $62,674 (QLD).

    As with the normal Golf GTI colour range, Volkswagen only charges a $300 premium for its Kings Red premium metallic finish, with all five other options available at no additional cost.

    It’s backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    Volkswagen’s updated ‘Mk8.5’ Golf GTI is due in Australia early next year.

    The facelifted GTI – along with the wider Golf range – will bring a new infotainment system with simpler menus, as well as illuminated touch controls and physical steering wheel buttons.

    It also receives a 15kW power bump, with its 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s output increased to 195kW.
