2018 Highlights

For 2018, the VW Golf GTI pares down trim levels to three choices. All get the formerly optional 10-horsepower increase, so every 2018 GTI now puts out 220 hp. The two top trims also offer new standard features, including LED headlights, driver safety aids, upgraded performance brakes and larger touchscreen displays.


  • Quick, zippy acceleration guarantees grins for miles
  • Sporty handling makes fun work of twisting roads
  • Roomy hatchback design offers excellent passenger and cargo versatility
  • High-quality interior materials look and feel great


  • Now-common safety aids limited to top two trims
  • Standard high-performance tires contribute to a stiff ride quality
  • Some competitors offer more performance for a lower price
  • Transmission doesn't shift smoothly at low speeds

Nice Upgrade from the SE
The main reasons I went with this trim over the SE was to gain Adaptive Cruise control and to keep the Fender stereo, which is only available on the Autobahn in 2018. The implementation of Android Auto is probably my favorite feature of this car - I don't even use the built-in navigation or satellite radio. The adaptive cruise and other driving aids are well done, with the exception of Lane keeping assist, which, if left to its own devices, wanders from side-to-side in the lane like a drunk driver. Other nice to haves include adaptive dampers, automatic climate control, a more comfortable 12-way adjustable driver's seat, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and self-parking. (I was skeptical about the utility of that last one, but it works well and assures I don't get "curb rash" when parallel parking.) Gripes are few: From prior experience with my 2015 model, I know that I'll have to replace the standard Bridgestone Potenza RE97s at around 20,000 miles, as they start to have crappy wet traction at that point. Also, there were a couple of build issues, including a sunroof rattle and a minor trim piece that fell off, which are being addressed by the dealer. Overall, I'm very happy with the decision to go with the Autobahn over the SE and would recommend it to anyone who can afford the additional coin.
Goft GTI SE / Leather
Bought the vehicle 3 weeks ago. The main reason for the choice is to have a smaller sized car with "peppy / sporty" driving characteristics for the city. The GTI is a fun little car and with the hatchback design still easy to use for storing some bulky items (55" TV in box fit perfect). Particular for city (San Fran) parking it is perfect. I like the acceleration and sportiness. The suspension is on the stiff side and potholes are for sure felt thru the body. Overall very good visibility and easy to get in and out too. 4 people fit nicely into the car. If anyone looks for a sporty compact vehicle I recommend the Golf GTI
Great car but higher sticker price
