Expert Quotes:

“options can lift sticker prices to the top of the class”
ConsumerGuide

“Most of the Autobahn's features are also offered as stand-alone options”
Edmunds

“if you wish to choose one of the other various available wheels you must either forego the sunroof or pay for an extra set of rims”
Kelley Blue Book

According to Edmunds, standard equipment on the 2009 Volkswagen GTI includes “xenon HID headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated outside mirrors, full power accessories, air-conditioning, cruise control, sport front seats, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat and a 10-speaker, six-CD/MP3 audio system with satellite radio, an auxiliary jack and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.”

“Equipment not included on a base GTI includes a six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) and rear seat side-impact airbags (four-door models),” reports Kelley Blue Book

Motor Trend says, “If you like built-in nav systems, the GTI offers two packages with visual and audible commands in the color screen in the center console and on the multifunction computer in the dash. The difference between the packages is whether you want a center-console-mounted six-CD changer or a built-in iPod connector.”

“The Autobahn Package adds a sunroof, a premium audio system, leather upholstery and heated front seats with power-adjustable lumbar support. Most of the Autobahn's features are also offered as stand-alone options,” reports Edmunds. “The Thunderbunny Package adds sporty exterior styling elements such as a front spoiler and a rear valance. Other upgrades for the GTI include 18-inch wheels, an iPod adapter and, when equipped with the Autobahn Package, a navigation system.

Kelley Blue Book remarks, “Oddly, VW packages the available sunroof with the 18-inch Hufeisen alloy wheels, meaning if you wish to choose one of the other various available wheels you must either forego the sunroof or pay for an extra set of rims.”

Finally, shoppers will definitely want to keep an eye on the bottom-line price. ConsumerGuide warns, “options can lift sticker prices to the top of the class."

Conclusion

The 2009 Volkswagen GTI combines hatchback convenience with upscale features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
