2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Year after year, automakers have to come up with ways to improve upon a vehicle they swore by a year before. Some succeed, others don’t. Volkswagen is one brand you can count on to deliver year after year, and they’ve done it again with the new Golf GTI. See how it has changed from 2017 to 2018 as we look at the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The Golf GTI has set itself apart from the competition due to its reputation for reliability and ease of handling as well as utility and performance. Under the hood of both models sits a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, but the newer model has managed to squeeze out more horsepower. The differences aren’t huge, but then again, it’s hard to improve upon a vehicle as iconic as the Golf GTI.
