  • The current Golf GTI was unveiled in 2015 and has been improved year after year
  • Of course no major updates were made, but just enough to keep the car fresh
  • And now we got the chance to get behind the wheel of the GTI to see if it can still stand in front of its competition
  • We will start by talking about the exterior, that comes with a few updates to differentiate it from a standard Golf
  • The grille features the now famous red horizontal highlight, while the standard LED fog lights are hidden within a series of horizontal strakes
  • For the rear Volkswagen adds bright exhaust tips, a unique rear diffuser, roof spoiler and LED taillights
  • On the side you will notice bespoke alloy wheels and subtle side skirts
  • The Golf GTI rides on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels
  • The grille features a unique mesh patter and gets the famous GTI letters
  • The same GTI letters are also featured on the brakes and the front fenders
  • The doors...
  • And the trunk door...
  • The car rides on a sport suspension that lowers the car by 0.6 inches
  • Under the hood there is a 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged with direct-injection
  • That delivers a total of 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • The Golf GTI offers a cargo room of 16.5 cu-ft
  • But with the rear seats folded it can be increased to 52.7 cu-ft
  • The Golf GTI does not only offer impressive cargo room, the cabin is also spacious
  • With the front headroom going up to 38.4 inches
  • And the legroom up to 41.2 inches
  • The driver controls are positioned to help optimize ergonomics and usability
  • The instrument cluster has a GTI-specific look
  • The pedals have a sporty aluminum-look
  • While all 2020 Golf GTI models come equipped with a MIB II touchscreen infotainment system
  • With the SE version offering a 8.0-inch touchscreen display with a Composition Media unit
  • The shifter knob is also unique for the GTI models
  • Prices for the Golf GTI start from $28,595 for the S version with the manual transmission
  • And from $32,195 for the SE version with the manual transmission
