Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Volkswagen GTI

Kimberly Smith
Automotive Editor - January 10, 2020
  • 2020 GTI is arriving; 2019s still available but very hard to find
  • Rebates: Unadvertised discounts + extra $500 credit for select customers
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR for 60 months
  • Lease: From $299 per month for 39 months

2020s are here:

The 2020 GTI is mostly a carryover of the 2019 but adds an updated infotainment system with WiFi. Automatic emergency breaks and blind spot warning also come standard, and there’s a new Autobahn Package available for the SE trim. The Rabbit Edition was discontinued for this model year, but there may be a few still in stock among the remaining 2019s.

Unfortunately, all trims are extremely difficult to find in stock right now.

The offers listed below are regional and expire January 31, 2020. Our examples are based on those for Western States.

Extra credit:

Dealers are being incentivized $3,500 by the manufacturer for each 2019 GTI they sell without promotional financing, or $1,500 when you finance at this month's low rates, and they may be willing to pass those savings onto you. These discounts are not automatic and are not being advertised, so negotiate for the full value.

In addition, a $500 bonus is available for qualified military and first responders, and new college graduates (i.e. graduated in the past 24 months) with proof of permanent, full-time income are eligible to receive a $500 credit on new financing or lease contracts signed with Volkswagen Credit.

Financing rates:

Promotional rates start at 1.9% APR for 60 months for 2019 models. Nothing has been introduced yet for 2020 models.

Remember, there is also room to negotiate up to $1,500 off your purchase of a 2019 model. That’s the amount dealers are being incentivized by the manufacturer for new financing on these trims, but they’re not required to pass those savings onto you.

Lease special:

Leasing a 2019 GTI 2.0T S with automatic transmission this month starts at $299 per month for 39 months with $3,999 due at signing. This includes an allowance of 10,000 miles per year. Unfortunately, it is not a good value.

2020 Volkswagen GTI: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - August 14, 2019

Model Preview

The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI arrived in 2015, and there have been limited visual updates since. There has been a handful of performance updates since and new packages since 2015, including the 2019 Golf GTI’s 8-horsepower increase and new Rabbit trim. The 2020 VW Golf GTI will continue as a visual carryover with a few tech tweaks, a simpler lineup, and a new Autobahn package.

On the outside, the 2020 VW Golf will hit showrooms virtually identical to the current model. While this design is still sharp, buyers who crave something new may want to wait a year, as we expect VW to release a redesigned 2021 Golf GTI.

Inside, the 2020 VW Golf GTI will carry on with the same basic design as before, but it will gain a few tweaks to its features. The biggest updates will be the all-new Car-Net infotainment system and standard in-car Wi-Fi. The 2020 Golf GTI SE will gain a new Autobahn package that will add a Discover Media infotainment system with navigation, automatic dual-zone climate control, and Fender premium audio.

2019 Volkswagen GTI

Under its hood, we expect the 2020 VW Golf GTI to continue with the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 228 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power will flow through a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch unit. The 2020 GTI will remain front-wheel drive only.

Another big change for the 2020 VW Golf GTI will come in the safety department, as it will add standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The 2019 GTI received the IIHS Top Safety Pick award with the optional headlights and automatic emergency braking. Stay tuned to see if these ratings carry into the 2020 Golf GTI unchanged.

The 2020 GTI will be available in just two trim levels, S and SE, which means the Rabbit and Autobahn trims will not carry on.

The Volkswagen GTI will battle the Hyundai Veloster N, Mini Cooper S Hardtop, and the Subaru WRX.
