2015 Volkswagen GTI vs. 2016 Volkswagen Golf Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Volkswagen GTI will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Golf, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen GTI and the Volkswagen Golf have similar Destination Charges.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Volkswagen GTI seats a lot fewer people than the Volkswagen Golf.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen GTI is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Golf.
