Volkswagen South Africa has announced the new, eighth-generation Golf GTI and current Polo Vivo can now be specified with the firm’s popular Black Style package.

Priced at R8 000, the Black Style package includes an array of additional exterior elements, such as piano black side mirrors and a chrome strip, finished in a similar hue, on the front grille. Specifying this package to the Golf GTI further adds 18-inch Bergamo alloy wheels, finished in black. 

“The Black Style Package is a popular optional package and its success in the Tiguan and Touareg models motivated our decision to also introduce it in the new Golf GTI and now the Polo Vivo,” said Steffen Knapp, head of the Volkswagen Passenger Car Brand.

In addition, the local arm of the German car manufacturer has also made this package, though with a few different exterior items than the Golf GTI, available to its bestselling, budget hatchback, the Polo Vivo.

A body-coloured boot spoiler and chrome-trimmed exhaust tips are included, as is black 16-inch alloy wheels. Body colours include Pure White, Reflex Silver, Flash Red and Reef Blue.
