2015 Volkswagen GTI: Great Gauges

November 27, 2014

 2015 Volkswagen GTI

Describing instrument panel gauges as "watch-like" is a common refrain among car designers. Unfortunately, it's usually more bluster than fact. Not so in our new 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI.

For the first time in a very long time, I looked at the speedometer in a car and said to myself, "Now that looks like the face of a nice watch."

Maybe it's the mix of standard and metric numbers that gives it that overloaded watch-face look, or maybe it's the clear, crisp numbers. Either way, it's a nice looking piece that's good looking and easy to read. At a time when more and more instrument panels are becoming video screens, it's nice to see a traditional setup that looks this good.
