2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

For Farmington Hills drivers who desire a smaller car with athletic performance capabilities, it is difficult to look beyond the impressive Volkswagen Golf GTI. The seventh-generation of the Golf GTI debuted in 2015, and Volkswagen has progressively made small, thoughtful updates to the model each year since then. If you are debating between taking home the 2019 Golf GTI and the updated 2020 model, you need to learn about the differences between these two models. Our trusted sales associates at Suburban Volkswagen of Farmington Hills are thrilled to support your research by getting you on the road to test drive the Golf GTI.


One of the more significant updates that you will find in the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI is the elimination of the Rabbit trim. For both years, the Golf GTI is equipped with a 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged engine that produces 228 horsepower. Performance is also elevated by a sport-tuned suspension system, variable-ratio power steering, 4-wheel drive, multiple drive modes accessible via the touch display screen, adaptive chassis control with three settings, a limited-slip differential, paddle shifters connected to the 7-speed DSG transmission system, GTI performance brakes and other equipment. The best way to get a feel for the actual performance abilities of the Golf GTI is to visit Suburban Volkswagen of Farmington Hills at your earliest convenience for a test drive.


The Volkswagen Golf GTI is not your typical 4-door hatchback. It shows off a low, aerodynamic profile. Its crisp personality lines flow down the sides and the hood to highlight the sharp LED headlights, prominent nose, and black grille. Unique GTI badging is found throughout. The LED lights have a multi-elemental design that creates a stunning first impression. The Volkswagen logo rises to reveal a camera when the rearview monitor system is in use. The Golf GTI also comes with 18-inch 5-blade alloy wheels, exposed red calipers, heated side mirrors with turn signal integration, a power liftgate, a sunroof, and other items.


The impressive nature of the 2019 and 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI continues throughout the interior. For 2020, the Golf GTI has standardized the driver assistance safety package and the Wi-Fi hotspot as standard equipment. For both years, the seats are available with monotone or plaid cloth, and the front seats have heat and power adjustments. The heated steering wheel holds the paddle shifters and other mounted controls. The 8-inch glass touch display screen looks sharp and provides access to the Fender premium sound system, the navigation system, the smart device app integration tech, SiriusXM technology, and more. Other equipment in the Golf GTI includes keyless entry, the Car-Net app, a push-button starter, power windows, a multi-zone climate control system, and more.
