Volkswagen has recently announced the launch of the brand new Golf 7 GTI in Australia, where the model will set you back for at least 45,988 AUD.

The new generation of the Volkswagen Golf GTI has been unveiled just earlier this year and after making its debut in several automotive events, across the globe, time has come for the model to be launched in Australia. According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI is now available for order in the Pacific country from 45,988 AUD, for the base entry-level version, but if the DSG is what you’re looking for, than get ready to pay at least 48,566 AUD.

Volkswagen says that the standard items found on the new Golf 7 GTI include the autonomous braking system, the 7 airbags, the Discover Media audio system, the satellite navigation system or the Austin alloy wheels, amongst others. Power to the model is still being provided by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged, direct injected petrol engine, which is good for either 220 PS (162 kW) or 230 PS (169 kW). Both variants get a 6-speed transmission as standard, with the DSG being available as an option.
