When the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI lineup was released here at Herman Cook VW in Encinitas, CA, during the last model year, we talked a lot about how it was once again raising the bar for the hatchback segment in some big ways. And now that the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI has been unveiled, we get to do it all over again.
That’s because the Original Hot Hatch is once again raising the bar for the hatchback segment thanks to a bevy of safety and technology improvements for the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI lineup. Not only does the 2020 VW Golf GTI lineup feature standard Wi-Fi and standard Car-Net® technology, but it also now features standard Front Assist capabilities, standard Blind Spot Monitor capabilities, and standard Rear Traffic Alert capabilities. And if you go with the premium 2020 VW Golf GTI SE trim level, you’re also getting a standard Discover Media infotainment system with navigation capabilities, standard Climatronic® automatic dual-zone climate control capabilities, standard Adaptive Cruise Control capabilities, standard Light Assist capabilities, standard Lane Assist capabilities, and a standard Fender® Premium Audio system.
If you’re going to call yourself the Original Hot Hatch, then you’re going to have to have a powerful, capable, and fun to drive engine under the hood – and that’s exactly what the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI lineup features.
In fact, the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI lineup houses a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder turbocharged TSI engine under the hood – one that provides you with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque all while still getting you up to 24 city MPG and 32 highway MPG.
You’re also getting a roomy and comfortable interior with the 2020 VW Golf GTI lineup – one that provides you with 93.5 cubic-feet of passenger room and up to 52.7 cubic-feet of total cargo capacity.
