Performance

The 2019 Volkswagen GTI is a high-ranking compact car that stands out for its brisk acceleration and athletic handling. With a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the car is lively but still feels composed when getting around. Drivers can choose from a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With 228 horsepower, the vehicle doesn't hesitate to drive fast with its excellent acceleration and responsive steering. The vehicle also hugs corners well and has minimal body roll, which allows joy rides a guarantee.

The new Honda Civic Si produces 205 horsepower with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is adequate in its class but is still less than the quick acceleration of the VW GTI. Drivers will enjoy the light weight of the vehicle and its eager chassis for a great weight-to-power ratio. The car is also fuel efficient with 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.

Interior Features

The high-quality materials that are included in the new GTI create a sleek cabin. Despite the size of the car, plenty of cargo space is provided for added convenience and functionality. Standard features that are offered include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, a USB port, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a 6.5-inch touch-screen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Ambient lighting, a rearview camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and an automatic post-collision braking system create a dynamic vehicle that is highly advanced compared to many of its rivals.

The 2019 Honda Civic Si offers low-slung seating height with features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that come standard. The center console is also easy and efficient to use. Unfortunately, the sport seats don't please everyone, and the touchscreen that is placed on the dash is sluggish with how it operates. The cargo space is also limited compared to what you'll get in the GTI and limits what can be transported in the cabin. Additional standard features include two USB ports and Bluetooth.

Consumer Ratings

Drivers who own the new 2019 Volkswagen GTI appreciate the vehicle's sportiness due to its strong engine and well-tuned chassis. The exterior styling of the hatchback also makes it eye-catching with its edgy tail lamps and oversized black grille. The upscale interior setting also makes it have more value and offers a high level of comfort to the driver and passengers, which allows it to have more value despite its affordable price tag.

Consumers enjoy the brilliant ride and handling of the new Honda Civic Si. Unfortunately, drivers don't prefer the exterior styling could use an upgrade and looks identical to past models. The infotainment system that is available in the cabin is also easier to use than previous models and now features a volume knob to control the audio.
