The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI is coming to South Africa soon!

“The Volkswagen Group has been impacted by the global shortage of the semiconductor chips and all vehicles built on the MQB platform have been affected. For this reason, the launch of the Golf 8 GTI in South Africa will now move to the third quarter,” said Steffen Knapp, Head of the Volkswagen Passenger Car Brand.

“We are working closely with our German counterparts to ensure that we get as many Golf 8 GTI units for the local market as possible. A few Golf 8 GTI units started arriving in the country from mid-April. These units will be stockpiled until we have enough vehicles for the launch at the beginning of the third quarter,” added Knapp.

The Golf 8 GTI has stirred a lot of excitement this year and will be presented to South Africans and VW enthusiasts digitally. Rather suitable as we are one of the biggest buyers of the GTI outside of Europe with more than 14 000 units sold since July 2013. The new Golf is expected to do well and it will definitely if it has already taken 29.1% of the A Hatch segment.
