2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI in Elgin, IL
Year after year, the Volkswagen Golf GTI continues to impress and reinforce its reputation as a premium, high-performance hatchback. Now in its seventh generation, the GTI sets high standards for itself but somehow manages to continually surpass them. The 2019 model is no different, with a variety of finely-tuned, upgraded specs and features coming together to elevate an already smooth, satisfying driving experience to the next level.
Also making an appearance this year is a unique trim called the Rabbit Edition. This is a throwback to the original 1984 GTI, which was known as Rabbit in the U.S. market. Falling between the base S and the mid-level SE, this special-edition model brings some unique stylistic touches with a black trim for the wheels, spoiler, and mirrors, along with Rabbit badges for the seats.
