Overall:

I have the sport model. I chose it because I love the plaid cloth seats. The fit and finish on the interior is as good as my Audi Allroad. The car accelerates and corners as fast as anyone needs. Ive owned Porsches that were faster but they were only more fun when I could get to the track. I dont know how you beat this car for quality, fun, and utility without spending twice as much. I wish it had an integrated garage opener and push-button start on the sport model.

Great overall car, good overall value and feature set. The VW dealer I visited provided a fantastic experience as well, which is worth noting.

Overall:

The VW GTI Mk 7.5 does it all. Rewarding to drive at highway speeds. Carries four in comfort. Tackles way more stuff than its size would suggest. German engineering still does make a difference. The new GTI Mk 8 stumbles: eliminated the regular sized shifter for quick turning side-to-side shifts. Eliminated the separate front seat headrests. No longer a base model without so much digital. -Bd.

  • Handling

Handling Ranked 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line FWD better.
"The balance of the vehicle feels less front heavy than the GTI. The steering weight feels nice and helps to feel the road more so than the GTI. The steering wheel size and shape feels much better than the GTI."
Value Ranked 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line FWD better.
"It has tech options (with tech package 3) like the GTI most expensive trim but for cheaper than the base GTI trim. And its got heated and cooled seats"

2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T Rabbit Edition FWD Review
Mkc85 says:
Its what every review ever has said, good at everything. I want more straight line power, but its more than enough to get me into trouble and fun everytime I spool it up. Power is great where you really need it, like overtaking, and I look forward to every onramp (as well as driving period, for that matter). Torque is available just about everywhere above 1800 rpm in any gear. And if its your thing, its real easy to get more power out of it.. The chassis is amazing. Its so good it convinced me I dont need awd, because i can hardly tell the difference in a car set up this well, other than the improved gas mileage (if you have the discipline to keep your foot out of it). I cant say enough good about this chassis, I didnt know a fwd car could feel and handle this well. Aside from driving dynamics while maintaining reasonable gas mileage, the interior is great, seats are amazing, base sound system is very good, led lights and the fancy things the adaptive stuff does is very impressive, and of course the practicality of the hatch is undeniable, with back seats down rivaling crossovers and small SUV capacity. This is why I chose it over the WRX. You can feel its intelligence does remove some of the engagement, though, like all new cars unfortunately.
