Overview

The Golf GTI has offered a tradition of affordable performance since the first model was introduced in 1983. It continues to deliver refinement, power and responsiveness powered by a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection unit.

The EA888 engine produces 228 horsepower (achieved using premium fuel) at 4,700 rpm, and torque peaks at 258 lb-ft, beginning at just 1,500 rpm and lasting until 4,500 rpm. It can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic, the most advanced such unit Volkswagen offers. The DSG transmission incorporates a Start-Stop System designed to save fuel, as well as a launch control feature.

The 2020 Golf GTI is available in three trims—S, SE, and Autobahn.  Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert are now standard equipment on all models. They also include standard in-car Wi-Fi capability (requires data plan) and the next generation Car-Net infotainment system.

The S models feature standard LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs).  LED headlights with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) are standard on SE models. A bright-red horizontal strip visually connects the headlights to a revised grille and bumper. 

The Autobahn Package is available for the SE model and adds a host of upscale features, including a Discover Media infotainment system with navigation, Climatronic® automatic dual-zone climate control, Fender Premium Audio, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist), and High Beam Control (Light Assist).
