2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Details
The Golf GTI was the original hot hatch. Introduced back in 1976 (two years after the Golf made its first appearance), the Golf GTI has been making a splash ever since. It keeps all the great bits from the base Golf model and adds a ton of performance-boosting features. So, what do all those performance tweaks amount to?

0-60 MPH Acceleration and Top Speed
The 2020 Golf GTI does 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds. Its top speed is 155 mph. Those are incredible numbers for such an unassuming vehicle. And they’re thanks to the 2.0-liter TDI (turbocharged direct-injection) four-cylinder engine. It produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. All that power is sent to the wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic (DSG) or a six-speed manual, depending on your preference. The six-speed manual is standard on all trims, but the seven-speed DSG is available on each.
The 2020 Golf GTI also has multiple available features that will boost your performance. One of the big additions is an autobahn-tuned sport suspension. It can switch between different driving modes on the fly. With Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Custom suspension settings, the Golf GTI can adapt to every situation. Speaking of adapting, the 2020 Golf GTI has available adaptive suspension dampers that almost completely eliminate any bumpiness from rough roads. A VAQ limited-slip locking front differential and performance brakes make sure that you’re always in control, whether you’re on the track, the highway, or city streets.
