Interior Design

The driver and passenger board the two-seater interior of the Golf GTE Sport through doors that swing right up in the style of the XL 1. The doors extend a long way up into the roof and down into the side sills, resulting in convenient boarding when they are opened upwards.

The interior in carbon and microfibre consists of two completely separate areas for the driver and passenger.

Like in motorsport vehicles, they sit quite a long way to the back on racing bucket seats with five-point belts.

Accordingly, the steering column that is entirely clad in carbon projects a long way into the interior where it appears to float – a further characteristic feature of a rally car or touring-car racer.

The functional elements are operated via controllers and buttons in the cocoon-like interior trim. The gearbox of the Golf GTE Sport can also be operated manually with shift paddles on the motorsport steering wheel.

The instruments featuring a completely new design have been specially coordinated for the configuration of the driver’s workspace.

The Volkswagen interface designers opted for three transparent displays arranged behind one another on which all relevant information is displayed.

On the smallest display at the front (closest to the driver) information such as the selected gear and the recuperation status is displayed; information that is only sporadically checked from the corner of the eye whilst driving.

The center display has secondary yet more complex information such as the power currently delivered by the drive (power meter) and the boost intensity of the plug-in system (electric boost). Information such as the current speed and the range are constantly in the driver’s field of vision on the third and largest display.

In addition, in “GTE mode” not only is the current lap displayed (e.g. 9 of 16), but there is also a virtual indicator of the ideal driving line – valuable assistance for safe and fast driving on complex racetracks such as the aforementioned Nürburgring north loop.
