2021 Volkswagen GTI Prices and Deals

  • 2021 GTI is here

2021 GTI is here

The 2021 GTI is arriving as a carryover of the 2020 model, which has sold out. While the GTI used to be somewhat of a halo car for the brand, its popularity has diminished, and the car can be hard to find in stock compared to crossovers like the Tiguan.

VW recently confirmed that the GTI and its higher-performance big brother, the Golf R, will be redesigned this fall for the 2022 model year. At the same time, the brand has discontinued the regular Golf, and 2021 will be that model's final year in the U.S.

The offers listed below are regional and expire May 3, 2021. Our examples are based on those for Western States like California, Utah, and others.

Leases: From $399 per month for 39 months

During Volkswagen's Sign & Drive event, you can lease a 2021 GTI S 2.0T with automatic from $399 per month for 39 months with $0 due at signing. Unfortunately, an effective cost of $399/month is a lousy deal for a car with this MSRP. For perspective, that's more than a $30,000 Atlas Cross Sport ($349).

Like most VW leases, the deal is based on an allowance of 10,000 miles a year. You can talk to your dealer about other mileage options that could affect your final price.

Rebates: Up to $1,500 in unadvertised savings

Dealers are being incentivized with a $1,500 dealer cash offer from the manufacturer for every 2021 GTI they sell without promotional financing. That's triple the $500 they were given two months ago. These are not automatic discounts, but dealers may be willing to pass those savings onto you if you play your cards right. Our advice is to negotiate for the full value of the incentive.

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: From 0% APR for 60 months

Promotional finance rates for 2021 GTIs start at 0% APR for 60 months or 1.9% APR for 72 months. As an added bonus, dealers are being given up to a $500 APR bonus to help provide better pricing. Still, that's not nearly as good as last year's stellar deals involving zero-interest financing for 72 months.
