As you have noticed from the table above, the 2020 VW Golf GTI hatchback offers several advantages over the Veloster N. While the Hyundai Veloster N does offer a more powerful engine, it’s important to note that this extra power will cost you extra in the end. What do we mean by that? In order to supply the Veloster N with more power, more fuel will be consumed. Meanwhile, the Golf GTI offers an impressive amount of horsepower and torque while saving you gas money.
Inside, the 2020 VW Golf GTI proves to offer much more space and luxury for its passengers. With the Golf GTI, you can comfortably seat up to 5 adults. With the Veloster N, the fifth person will have to stay behind or find their own mode of transportation, as its maximum seating capacity is only four people. Packing some cargo? The maximum cargo volume inside the Golf GTI measures to 53.7 cubic feet, which is a much larger cargo area than the 44.5 cubic feet available in the Veloster N. Looking for ways to keep warm this coming winter? Heated front seats are standard with the 2020 VW Golf GTI. Drivers that choose the Veloster N don’t get the option to add this feature.
Of course, the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI offers many more luxuries for you and your passengers to take advantage of on the road.
