The VW GTI is getting a new special edition model that recalls the Golf’s past. VW unveiled the special 2019 VW GTI Rabbit Edition a few days ago and now we’ve learned that it’s priced at $29,790 with the six-speed manual. If you choose the optional seven-speed DSG transmission, the 2019 GTI Rabbit Edition starts at $30,890.
The 2019 VW GTI Rabbit Edition is $1,300 more than the base 2019 GTI S, which starts at 28,490, but $2,900 less than the SE trim level. The 2019 VW GTI Rabbit Edition adds 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, LED headlights, black mirror caps, Rabbit-badged seat tags, red-stitched floor mats, and keyless access with push-button start. The GTI Rabbit Edition also comes with driver assistance technology, like forward collision prevention, a blind spot monitor, and rear traffic alert system.
It’s available in just four colors: Cornflower Blue, Urano Grey, Pure White and Deep Black Pearl.
The entire 2019 GTI lineup is getting an eight horsepower upgrade, which means that the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder now generates 228 horsepower.
