2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Serving Troy, MI

For years, the Volkswagen GTI has remained one of the most exciting hatchbacks on the market. Great passenger and cargo space make it a more practical alternative to a traditional sports car. Let's find out how the 2020 Volkswagen Golf compares to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf.

Performance

The Volkswagen GTI returns for 2020 with no significant changes under the hood. It's motivated by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged TSI four-cylinder engine. Volkswagen tunes this engine to crank out an impressive 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While a six-speed manual gearbox is standard, you can opt for a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. Not only does the GTI offer strong acceleration, but it also returns up to 32 mpg. Race-bred handling gives this "hot hatch" another fun factor. An autobahn-tuned sport suspension and a limited-slip differential ensure exceptional control around corners.

Appearance

When comparing the 2020 Volkswagen GTI to the 2019 Volkswagen GTI, you won't notice any styling differences. This car's racy appearance matches its exciting performance capabilities. Red accenting gives the front fascia a special touch. A sport bumper also helps the GTI to stand out. Upgraded LED headlights are found on the upper trims. While dual exhaust finishers add more aggression to the rear fascia, sleek 18-inch wheels enhance the powerful stance of the GTI. Some of the new paint options include Tornado Red, Deep Black Pearl, and Pure White.

Features

Although the Volkswagen GTI is built to perform, it still manages to offer a great deal of relaxation on the road. Heated sport seats come standard. You'll also enjoy this sporty vehicle's impressive list of high-tech features. The touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is a big highlight. After connecting the interface to their smartphone, users can stream music and mobile apps. While the 2019 model was already a great value, more standard equipment was added to the 2020 Volkswagen GTI. A Wi-Fi hotspot makes accessing the internet easy. Last year's optional Driver Assistance package also comes standard for 2020. It adds automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
