The GTI is an original. It is the Hot Hatch that started it all!
There is more to the GTI than its stance, performance and driving manners. It is a comfortable sports hatch that accommodates five, offers a high level of standard equipment and has the best ride/handling mix of any car in its class. Don’t take our word for it – it already won
Car of The Year and is the North American Car of The Year.
Will all of this convince you to get a GTI? To prove that we have the best sports compact around, the GTI will be compared to the Ford Focus ST and the Honda Civic Si.
|Volkswagen Golf GTI 4-Door S||Ford Focus ST Hatchback||Honda Civic Si Sedan|
|2.0Liter turbocharged I-4 – 210HP||2.0Liter turbocharged I-4 – 252HP||2.4Liter I-4 – 205HP|
Combined Fuel Economy
|29 MPG||26 MPG||25 MPG|
|3031 lbs.||3223 lbs.||3002 lbs.|
Rear Sear Room (Head/Leg/Hip/Shoulder in inches)
Cargo Space (Rear seat up)
|22.8 cu. Ft.||23.8 cu. Ft.||12.5 cu. Ft.|
Numbers tell you one thing. The truth is how the GTI executes on the road – and on the track. Not to mention how space efficient the GTI is for people and cargo. Importantly, it has active safety features not found on a lot of hot hatches – including Car-Net connected services.
Driving a GTI will convince the most doubting enthusiast that the original is always the best. No need to convince anyone of that logic – remember, the GTI has the trophies to prove it.
