What does Volkswagen GTI stand for?

GTI stands for Grand Touring Injection. Volkswagen uses for its direct fuel injection system. 

Over 40 years ago, GTI technology was first deployed in the 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI. GTI was meant to power long-distance journeys without sacrificing performance by using a new direct fuel injection system. This way drivers could enjoy an exhilarating drive for miles. The GTI was originally tested in certain Gran Turismo Italian models, but eventually, it found its way to the Volkswagen Golf and then onward to other forward-thinking manufacturers.

Direct fuel injection systems make engines more efficient by changing how they burn fuel. This gives many advantages to Costa Mesa drivers such as:

  • More power
  • Cleaner emissions
  • Increased fuel economy
