2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

I have owned a number of GTIs, but have to say this is probably the best one ever. The sport is a stand alone model that includes the performance pack, Nogaro alloys (Only on Sport model), bi-xenon/LED lighting, keyless entry/ignition, over the base S model. Plus, Apple play is a great feature negating the need for navigation. For me, and I am sure other enthusiasts agree that this is the perfect model - why? The new MQB platform GTI is a an incredibly well-developed car that drives and handles superbly. The Sport has all the essentials needed without the superfluous toys added in the SE and Autobahn models - this is the enthusiasts GTI. The addition of the Performance packs adds some extra horsepower, but the real bonus of the package is the mechanical limited slip differential which takes cornering on a front-drive car to a new level, and the stopping power of the R brake package. The beauty of the GTI has always been the fact that it is such a versatile and well-behaved car when you want it to be, but when you want to push it to it limits it is in an even happier mode. I love the fact that this car is so capable in so many areas - it may well be the perfect car!

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

Like most people in this segment who are shopping for a fun to drive affordable sport car, it was hard chosing btw the GTI and the WRX as both car diving dynamic and performance are excellent. I chose the GTI for its quality interior and DSG as a daily driver over the WRX CVT. However, if you need awd, then get the WRX.
