Performance features in the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI
Performance enthusiasts are sure to love the Golf GTI. First introduced in 1983 as the performance-enhanced counterpart of the Volkswagen Golf, the Golf GTI offers most of the same features with a sportier attitude. The Golf GTI is set to return for the 2020 model year, and once again, it looks destined to thrill. Check out the performance features in the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI here on our blog!
The Golf GTI is German engineering at its finest. Both the S and SE trim levels come equipped with the 2.0L TSI® turbocharged engine, and that means a respectable 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers prove to be sporty enough to get your adrenaline pumping, but efficient enough to allow for 24 city/32 hwy mpg. If you’re the type who likes having control over your vehicle, you’re sure to be satisfied by the sporty 6-speed manual transmission. If you want more ease and less responsibility behind the wheel, opt instead for the available 7-speed automatic.
Further enhancing fuel efficiency is a Start-Stop System, which will turn the engine off momentarily while idling to help reduce wasted fuel and harmful emissions. The high-strength steel frame is durable enough to withstand whatever you throw its way, but a strut-type front suspension with lower control arms and a multilink rear suspension with coil springs makes for a comfortable ride. Other performance highlights include Driving Mode Selection with three modes, 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels with all-season tires, and an ESC Sport function for high-performance driving.
