VW Golf GTI trim levels compared

One of the first steps in searching for the right VW Golf GTI is to identify which trim level has the features that I would find beneficial to have and be worth paying for.  What follows is a summary of the Mk7 GTI trim levels and the option packages with some of their key features.

There are a few other minor items  that exist on all trim levels that I have not included in the table as their presence is not particularly noteworthy, i.e. leather wrapped handbrake.
