Review of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI

The Golf GTI is a quintessential hot hatch, which is not only the quickest car in its class, but also usually the most refined. Developed by six blokes after work in the mid-seventies, the Golf GTI has been a staple in the Volkswagen line up ever since. The car was such a hit that VW initially only planned to build 5,000 of them, but sold six times that amount in its first year.

While there are plenty of rivals, the Golf GTI remains a popular choice with loyal owners. While the Subaru WRX and Ford Focus ST are distinctly different vehicles, the VW GTI has the same kind of all-wheel-drive powertrain and is much cheaper. However, it earns high marks in every category. While these cars might be better in one area than another, the GTI excels in all areas, which makes it an excellent choice for many drivers.

Interior

The VW GTI's minimalist interior makes for a surprisingly easy driving experience. The touchscreen, which can be operated via touch-sensitive sliders, responds quickly and is highly customizable. The dash has a multitude of ambient lighting options and the option to switch between sport and normal modes. It also has heated seats and an ESC Sport mode. And all of this comes with a generous warranty and complimentary scheduled maintenance. So, if you're looking for an affordable, sporty vehicle with a modern interior, the GTI is a good choice.

The Volkswagen GTI's high-quality materials make for a comfortable ride. The front seats are supportive and offer ample legroom. The cargo area is larger than average for a small car, and the rear seats fold flat for extra space. The GTI's engine delivers strong acceleration and is virtually noise-free. Its battery-electric power system allows it to travel 84 miles on a fully charged battery. And when it comes to driving, the GTI is surprisingly agile, with its steering feeling stable and responsive.

Performance

The new Volkswagen GTI has been compared to the Mk7 GTI in a handling test. Both cars have identical power outputs and use the same tires, but the Mk8 GTI was four seconds faster around the same 2.0-mile track. The Mk8 GTI is equipped with optional Michelin tires, which help offset the busy interface. The vehicle is also covered by an above-average limited warranty and comes with complimentary scheduled maintenance.

The performance of the Volkswagen GTI is accentuated by the new brakes. MotorTrend was impressed by the new GTI's brakes, which brought the car to a complete stop in 104 feet. MotorTrend also tested the car with the traction control systems turned on. The car accelerated to sixty mph in 5.1 seconds. And if this wasn't enough, it also has a sportier appearance.

Fuel economy

A Volkswagen GTI is a sporty, fast sports car that is built to perform. The GTI has an average fuel economy of 22.0 miles per gallon on the combined cycle. A 1992 GTI has a combined mileage of 21 MPG, according to government regulators. This car will cost the average consumer $1,850 per year to operate, based on 15,000 miles of city driving and regular gasoline. The car will also use about 16 barrels of petroleum per year, most of which comes from U.S. or Saudi Arabia.

The 2020 Golf GTI has a 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, designed by Volkswagen engineers. This engine produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It can be found on the SE trim level, and will achieve estimated fuel economy of 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The fuel economy of the Golf GTI is good, and the car can reach an EPA mileage rating of 32 mpg.

Redesign

Redesigned for 2017, the VW Golf GTI brings new looks to the iconic sports car. It now rides on 18-inch alloy wheels. New LED headlights with five dots sit above the standard fog lights. The VW logo sits over the available light bar. At the rear, the GTI has LED taillights and classic twin tailpipes. The exterior has undergone slight revisions to improve aerodynamics. Here are some of the changes you should notice.

Redesign of VW GTI: Volkswagen has redesigned the golf GTI to make it more powerful and sophisticated than ever. New features include more power, sharper handling, and an upgraded infotainment system. The new Golf GTI continues to be a popular alternative to a sports coupe.
