2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Thousand Oaks CA

Though both the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI in Thousand Oaks CA and 2017 Subaru WRX are evenly matched when it comes to smart performance and reliability, there's a significant divide from a practicality standpoint. Though the WRX can offer you greater horsepower and off-the-line torque output, there's no denying the versatility that the Golf GTI provides while still offering you maximum return on investment. Its hatchback styling leads it to give you incredible amounts of cargo volume, and great efficiency on the highway allows for more time on the road and less at the pump. That's not all; the Golf GTI is also highly skilled at keeping you and your family safe through every situation. This is because of a wealth of safety features inside –many of which the WRX cannot lay claim to – that have allowed the Golf GTI to be awarded a 5 Star overall NHTSA rating!

It's clear that the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI is a capable, fun and exhilarating vehicle for all types of consumers.
