Blending Powerful Thrills and Cool Looks: the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Take This VW Golf GTI Turbocharged Hatch for a Spin

Be careful, though—you might want to take it home! The Golf GTI was named one of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $30,000 by Kelley Blue Book last year, and this year’s model has even more to offer. The 2020 Golf GTI is the hatch to have if you’re looking for a spunky turbocharged engine, iconic style inside and out, the latest tech, and more.

There’s so much to explore in these new models, so we’ve put together this guide to the trim levels. At Spitzer Volkswagen, we’re passionate about helping our customers find the best vehicle for their needs, so if you have any questions, please give us a call or stop by.

Golf GTI S

Standard on each trim is a 2.0L TSI® turbocharged inline 4-cylinder with an intercooler providing 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Having fun means no loss of efficiency, either, with the Golf GTI getting an EPA-estimated 24 city and 32 highway mpg.

The standard Autobahn-tuned sport suspension gives the Golf GTI massive stability and grip through corners and a smooth ride. The GTI performance brakes offer impressive stopping power (plus the glossy red calipers look great).

Inside you’ll find Clark Plaid cloth seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, illuminated door sills, and ambient lighting, all standard. The standard heated front seats are perfect for chilly days in Ohio, too.

Stay connected with the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, Bluetooth®, and a USB port for charging. The Rear View Camera System makes maneuvering safe and simple, along with a number of other safety features like Electronic Stability Control and Engine Brake Assist.

Golf GTI Rabbit Edition

This trim is for the biggest enthusiasts, with only a few thousand being made. This version of the GTI will include 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, black-painted mirror caps, gloss black GTI Rabbit Edition spoiler, Rabbit seat tags, red-stitched floor mats, and special-edition color Urano Gray and Cornflower Blue.

You’ll also enjoy several active safety features, including Blind Spot Monitor which helps alert you to traffic in your blind spots. Rear Traffic Alert helps you stay safe when backing out of tight spots using sensors to detect vehicles behind you when you’re in reverse.


Get more out of the performance GTI offers with the SE’s Performance Monitor. And get more looks with the 18-inch two-tone machined alloy wheels.

You might want to spend more time in the SE with its comfortable leather seating. The power tilting/sliding panoramic moonroof adds wonder to each drive. Enjoy your favorite tunes with the Composition Media touchscreen sound system via an 8-inch display.

Golf GTI Autobahn

Control how your Golf GTI responds in various driving conditions using the Driving Mode Selection. This feature allows you to change the way your vehicle performs. With DCC® Adaptive Chassis Control, wheel and acceleration sensors track input to adjust optimum damping force.

The Autobahn comes standard with the Fender® Premium Audio System, giving you clear sound via eight speakers, a subwoofer, and 400 watts of power.
