The standard GTI is loaded with important and exciting features that improve every minute you spend in the vehicle:

  • A rear spoiler offers a sporty look, LED foglights ensure excellent visibility, and a cooled glovebox keeps drinks and snacks chilled. Plaid cloth upholstery gives the cabin a singular look, and the leather-wrapped steering makes it feel upscale as well. Standard tech features include a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an 8-speaker stereo with HD and satellite radio.
  • The Focus does not come standard with a spoiler, does not have any type of foglights, and incorporates standard glovebox, steering wheel, and upholstery designs. The display screen measures only 4.2-inches and does not integrate with apps, and the six-speaker stereo offers no extra audio options.
