Are VW Golf GTIs Reliable?
The 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI is a performance-oriented hatch, but you can also count on it to deliver a dependable ride for years to come.

The transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty offers limited coverage for up to six years or 72,000 miles, giving you peace of mind throughout your travels.
Which VW Golf GTI is Best?
This year, the newly refreshed Golf GTI is available as three trim models: the base S, mid-range SE, and exclusive Autobahn. The best model for you is the one that matches your priorities. With the S model, you’re getting an athletic ride and a handsomely equipped cabin at an excellent price. The Clark Plaid cloth seating adds a little panache to the roomy, comfortable seats. With adjustable drive modes, you can select the suspension settings that suit your mood, whether you’re after a smooth cruise on the open highway or a cutthroat race around the track.
Step up your game with the SE. It builds on the S’s features with timesaving keyless entry and ignition features. You’ll also enjoy a sunroof, which gives the cabin an airy, open feel. This model also contains extra safety features, including the automatic emergency braking system, which can even detect pedestrians and pull you up short of an accident. In addition to high-octane performance, the Autobahn builds on the brand’s passenger comfort features, with dual-zone climate control and a 10-way power driver seat. The Autobahn also takes your ride to the next level, with extra performance gear like adaptive suspension dampers and a larger rear stabilizer bar.
Is the VW Golf GTI AWD?
No. Like its predecessors, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI uses front-wheel drive. Still, the GTI’s performance is nothing short of extraordinary. The Performance package, standard in the SE and Autobahn trim models, adds an electronically controlled front differential that shuffles torque between the two front wheels as needed. The result is a highly engaging ride around the racetrack.
