Volkswagen Golf GTI

Have you been waiting for the official introduction of the Volkswagen Golf GTI in the Philippines? You've probably seen a static display in some automotive event, but if you want to see the car in action, we'd like to share a tip with you.

In the evening of February 26 (Thursday), Automobile Central Enterprise is formally launching the much-awaited hatchback at the Volkswagen showroom in Bonifacio Global City. Now, technically speaking, the event is exclusively for the media, but got word that the public may actually come by and witness the proceedings.

You see, Ayala-owned ACE will have the road directly in front of the VW dealership (28th Street) cordoned off. That's because at least three units of the Golf GTI will be made available for the journalist guests to test-drive. The activity will include some basic driving tests such as acceleration and braking (hopefully some slalom, too?), and all of this will be done in full view of anyone who will bother to stand by the side of the road.

Our invite indicates a call time of 6pm, but our source says the test drives will likely start at 8pm and run until midnight. See you there?
