A golf ball gear knob in the Volkswagen Golf GTI has been named the most iconic car feature in a poll of 2,000 drivers.
In a poll of favourite gadgets and gimmicks inside cars, Volkswagen’s quirky gear stick topped the poll by CitNOW, which aimed to find the most popular secret features some owners didn’t even realise were fitted on their cars.
Oliver Parsons Head of Sales and Client Services UK at CitNOW, said: “The Volkswagen Golf GTI golf ball gear knob was voted as the most iconic hidden feature. It might even be the difference between someone buying the Golf GTI or looking at a rival!
“All these secret or fun features will delight a buyer who’s bought a car before realising they got more than they bargained for, so why not help to reveal them to foster an emotional engagement – it could even sway them into making a decision to buy.”
Other gimmicks to rank highly in the poll include an integrated umbrella in a Skoda, the infamous vase on the Volkswagen Beetle dashboard and bike rack on the back of a Vauxhall Corsa.
But it’s the Volkswagen Golf Ball Gear Knob which wins the poll, claiming 19.9% of the vote to find top spot in the top ten.
