2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Review

  • Sporty and fun handling
  • Roomy hatchback design for passengers and cargo
  • Sophisticated ride quality with the optional adaptive suspension
  • High-quality interior materials look and feel great
  • Limited grip of standard all-season tires saps performance potential
  • Higher trim levels are pricier without increasing performance
  • Black exterior accents to celebrate the final year of this generation
  • New MIB3 infotainment system standard on SE and Autobahn trims
  • Part of the seventh Golf GTI generation introduced for 2015

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is one of our favorite hot hatchbacks thanks to its artfully executed blend of performance, comfort and utility. At its core, the GTI is a performance-oriented variant of the Golf compact hatchback, but the GTI also offers a more comprehensive set of features than the standard Golf.

Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque — a substantial increase over the Golf's 147 hp and 184 lb-ft. The GTI's cabin also receives upgraded materials, including supportive sport seats clad in plaid upholstery — a signature dating back to the first GTI.

Know that a fully redesigned GTI is on its way for the 2022 model year. It will have more power and a sleeker interior design with two large display screens. Still, this final-year GTI has enough positive attributes to make it worth a look. Read our Expert Rating to get our in-depth evaluation.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Volkswagen GTI is the quintessential hot hatch. It's fun and engaging to drive yet still practical and comfortable day to day. You'll find more performance for less money elsewhere, but no one else does as many things as well as the GTI. Outside of performance, the GTI has a spacious and roomy cabin that features a generous cargo area, though storage in the front is a bit lacking. We like the tech and driver aids too — they're refined and simple to use.
Few cars on the road today are as easy and as fun as the GTI. Raw acceleration isn't anything special; our manual-equipped GTI test car covered 0-60 mph in an unremarkable 7.1 seconds. But the turbocharged inline-four feels strong in everyday driving. There's lots of smooth low-end torque, so you don't need to downshift more than one gear to pass on the highway or power out of a corner. When you do need to shift, the clutch is light and precise, as is the shifter. This is one of the easiest manual transmissions we've ever operated.

Braking performance was excellent in our performance tire-equipped test car, with short stops from 60 mph of 110 feet on our test track and a generally firm and responsive brake pedal. Those tires helped with steering feedback too. The effort is light, but it's responsive and quick to turn in. The GTI feels light and athletic and, while not as sharp as some other hot hatches, it still impresses on a winding back road.
The GTI does a wonderful job of splitting the difference between sporty and comfortable. The front seats are firm and supportive, with bolstering that doesn't feel overly snug. There's a decent amount of adjustment, though we wish the power-adjustable seats could go slightly lower. The ride quality is excellent. It leans toward the comfortable side of sporty, but that doesn't mean it feels overly soft or floaty. Our test car was fitted with adaptive dampers, helping the GTI get the best of both worlds.

The GTI's climate control system works well, blowing cold and cooling the GTI down quickly. Vents for rear-seat passengers are a bonus. It's relatively quiet too, with only a mild amount of wind and road noise. Some might find the exhaust note a bit tiring, but you do get a nice growl and a bit of turbo whooshing from under the hood.
The GTI's front seats are spacious, with excellent head-, legroom and shoulder room. Rear occupants don't have as much legroom, and a tunnel running down the center of the car makes the center seat just about useless. Getting in and out is easy since the short doors and wide openings provide plenty of space to move, even with the front seat's bolsters.

Most of the controls, from the clutch and shifter to the climate control and media settings — are well placed and easy to reach. There are dedicated buttons for most of the major settings and controls. The thin-rimmed steering wheel means the instrument cluster isn't blocked, but the wheel-mounted controls aren't easy to identify and are cumbersome to use at first. Visibility is excellent thanks to wide, upright windows and relatively narrow pillars.
Volkswagen's infotainment system features one of the most user-friendly interfaces around. The controls are logical and easy to use, and the motion-activated on-screen buttons keep the system from feeling cluttered. The Fender audio system in our test vehicle was excellent, with clear highs and warm, well-rounded lows. The biggest issue is smartphone connection. It's great having Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, but there's only a single USB port inside.

The driver aids work fairly seamlessly too. Adaptive cruise control is available with a manual transmission and maintains a good gap without constantly applying the gas or brakes. Only the parking sensors are a little sensitive.
The GTI is one of the few remaining hatchbacks on the market, a boon for those looking for performance and fun in a practical package. The cargo area packs 22.8 cubic feet of storage, more than just about every other compact hatchback around. With the rear seats folded flat, the space opens up to 52.7 cubic feet. The cargo area itself is wide, flat and upright, so there's usable space in all directions. Storage up front isn't quite as good. We like the large front and rear door pockets that have space for water bottles, but the small center console and storage bin aren't good for much more than a smartphone.

It's relatively easy to install a car seat thanks to easy-to-access anchors on the outboard seats. The rear door opening could be a bit tight for some seats, and connecting to the anchor point on the seatback requires removing the cargo cover.
The GTI has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg combined (24 city/32 highway) with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and 26 mpg combined with the six-speed manual. That's a hair off the Honda Civic Si and the Volkswagen Jetta GLI. On our mixed-driving 115-mile evaluation loop, the GTI returned an impressive 31.5 mpg, even with a bit of spirited canyon driving thrown in.
There's no getting around it: If you're interested in a GTI, expect to pay a bit more than you would for most of its rivals. It's one of the most expensive vehicles in its class, and the GTI's performance-per-dollar isn't all that great. Our loaded tester was right on par pricewise with a 306-horsepower Honda Civic Type R with nowhere near the performance. That said, you do see where the money went. Build quality is excellent, with solid fit and finish and nice use of higher-grade knobs and controls.

The four-year/50,000-mile basic and powertrain warranty is about average for the class, but Volkswagen also includes three years/36,000 miles of roadside assistance. Scheduled maintenance is also included for two years or 24,000 miles.
The GTI isn't likely to turn as many heads as some of its rivals, but that's part of the point. It's cool and conservative while being a ton of fun to drive. There's enough power from the turbocharged engine to feel peppy all the time, but not so much that you have to hold back on the street. Some rivals are a bit more lively, but they're far more likely to attract unwanted attention.

And it's not like the GTI is all cold and bland. The plaid seats, golf ball shifter, and red accents inside and out give it just a bit of flair without seeming overdone. It might be too dull for some, but at the same time it feels more grown-up.

Which Golf GTI does Edmunds recommend?

In previous years, we've recommended the GTI's base trim, the S. This year, however, SE and Autobahn trims get Volkswagen's new infotainment system called MIB3. Since the topped-out Autobahn also adds creature comforts such as dual-zone automatic climate control and safety aids including adaptive cruise control, that's the one we'd go with.

Volkswagen Golf GTI models

The 2021 Golf GTI is available in three trim levels: S, SE and Autobahn. All GTIs come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (228 hp, 258 lb-ft) and front-wheel drive. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is optional. Highlight features include:

S
The base S trim starts you off with:

  • 18-inch wheels with all-season tires
  • Limited-slip differential for better acceleration
  • Performance brakes
  • Heated front seats with plaid upholstery
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)
  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)

SE
The SE steps things up a bit, offering the same standard features as the S with a few upgrades such as:

  • LED headlights
  • Leather upholstery
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Keyless entry with push-button start
  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system

Autobahn
The top-level Autobahn adds features including:

  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Fender audio system
  • Adaptive suspension
  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the GTI and the car in front)
  • Lane keeping system (makes minor steering corrections to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane)
  • Optional summer-rated performance tires

    5/5 stars, Great all around car with plenty of power
    Mike,
    Autobahn 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 7AM)
    I bought the Autobahn because I really like the adaptive suspension. The car is really fun and sporty to drive and is comfortable and fairly quiet. Love the 2021 rims and prefer that they are 19 inch which is a bit softer ride and no rim damage on.pot holes. I haven't been able to find a way yet to permanently shut off Lane keep assist and auto start stop but it is fairly easy to do each time I get in the vehicle. I wish the performance monitor screen was available on this car like previous years. The rear spoiler is a little nicer and black this year which I really like. I replaced the paddle shifters with metal ones from ebay and they are way better than the stock plastic ones. DSG transmission has very quick smooth shifts. Love it so far.

    2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI video

    [MUSIC PLAYING] KURT NIEBUHR: On my left is the 2018 Volkswagen GTI. On my right is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R. They both look pretty similar. So what makes this one the GTI, and what makes this one the R? Let's find out. [MUSIC PLAYING] The entry level 2018 Volkswagen GTI starts off at about $26,500 and goes up to what this car costs, about 36 grand. All GTIs come with front-wheel drive, four-cylinder, turbocharged engines. This particular GTI has the Autobahn trim, which comes with bigger brakes, the same size brakes that you can get on the Golf R. The 2018 Golf R starts at about 39 to 40 grand with a 6-speed manual. It's also a two liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it has all-wheel drive. This particular one has the DSG automatic. That bumps the price up closer to 41 grand. But there aren't really any other trims or options for the car. Is it really worth the extra money? [MUSIC PLAYING] The GTI has chunked up a bit over the last 20 something years. And it tips the scales at 3,216 pounds. The Golf R weighs about 200 pounds more. But you wouldn't know it based on the way it accelerates. We ripped off a zero to 60 time at 4.7 seconds. Shifts from the DSG were quick and aggressive, even chirping second gear. And the engine pulled hard right through the quarter mile. Try as we might, we just couldn't get the GTI to hook up. And our zero to 60 time suffered as a result. We suspected the Pirelli all seasons as the culprit and confirmed that suspicion as the day went on. Braking in the R was impeccable with consistent stopping distances and a low 106 foot range. The Golf R is faster for obvious reasons. It has more horsepower, But what's it like to drive? That's the important part. [ENGINE ROARING] One of the benefits to all-wheel drive is that you can use all of the power and the torque that the engine is making. The Golf R has all-wheel drive. So I can come out of a really tight hairpin, like this one, and I don't have to worry about feathering the throttle, managing wheel spin. I can just mash it. Even though you can get a 6-speed manual in this car, which is great, I love the fact that you can get a manual, the DSG is a fantastic gearbox. It's really fast. It's right with you. It knows what I want. It knows when I lift off not to upshift. It knows when I hit the brakes really hard like this. It goes down through the gears for me. It's a great gearbox. A great gearbox. [ENGINE ROARING] If I had one complaint about the Golf R is its weight. It just can't get away from how much it weighs. The front tires can get overworked and overheated pretty quickly if you start to push too hard. That's not saying that they're weak. You can cover ground at a pretty quick pace and they'll hold up just fine. But if you overdrive it, you'll lose the front tire. [MUSIC PLAYING] I think the Golf R is the pinnacle of practical performance. It's compact. It's fast. It has a hatchback. So if you really have your heart set on that nonexistent Audi S3 hatchback in the US, this is the car that you have to buy. Oh, it's good. [MUSIC PLAYING] So because the GTI isn't as fast, it doesn't have the raw speed of the R, you've got to work a little harder to make it go fast. But that's fun. And that's kind of always been the point of the GTI. You work hard and you're rewarded. I like that. [ENGINE ROARING] So this has front-wheel drive, not the all-wheel drive, which means you've got to pay attention on slow corner exits like this one. You come into it, and you can't just mash it. You've got to wait. And you still get wheel spin on the inside. This car does have an electronic limited slip, which helps a little bit, but you're still wasting power with wheel spin. It's really hard to find fault with a manual transmission in the GTI. It's just so intuitive. It's so easy to just rev match. Up shifts are positive every time. The gates are well defined. The action is right. There's really no reason not to buy the 6-speed manual. There really isn't. There is one knock against the GTI. I've got to say, it's the tire choice. These Pirelli all seasons just don't do the car justice. The chassis feels really good, and even without a limited slip in the front, or a proper limited slip in the front. It's still really playful. But the tires just give up really quickly. And they are loud and squealy. Listen to that. I wish this thing came with summer tires. The 2018 Golf GTI, it's got different ingredients, but it's the same recipe. What's not to like? Maybe besides the tires. Clearly, we love the GTI for the driving experience. It's fun, it's rewarding. But as the price climbs with options, it makes less and less sense. A $36 thousand GTI is a little hard to swallow, especially when the Golf R is looming just a few thousand dollars more. While the price tag might seem a bit expensive, the more time we spent in and around and driving the R, the more we were smitten with its mix of performance and comfort. At $40 thousand, we think it's right on the money. [MUSIC PLAYING] For more videos like this, hit subscribe. For full reviews on these VWs, be sure to go to Edmunds.

    Volkswagen Golf GTI vs. Honda Civic

    If you're looking for a hot hatch with more power than the GTI and a really big spoiler, look no further than the Honda Civic Type R. It offers a significant performance advantage over the GTI, packing 306 horsepower under the hood. The Type R is roomier and has more cargo space too. But the GTI is priced much lower on its base trim levels.

    Volkswagen Golf GTI vs. Hyundai Veloster

    Another high-horsepower competitor for the GTI is Hyundai's three-door hatchback, the Veloster N. Its turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 275 horsepower and offers a seriously enjoyable driving experience. The Veloster is quicker and sharper-handling than the GTI, but the GTI wins in the comfort department with its better ride quality.

    Volkswagen Golf GTI vs. Mazda 3

    Mazda has made its way back into the hot-hatch discussion by recently releasing a turbocharged version of the 3 hatchback. It cranks out up to 250 horsepower and comes standard with all-wheel drive. But the 3 Turbo doesn't have a sport-tuned suspension like the GTI does, and you can only get it with an automatic transmission.

    Should I lease or buy a 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
