‘The Golf GTI is a car that everyone, regardless of their ability, should be able to drive to maybe 90 per cent of its maximum within a few minutes,’ VW’s chassis boss says.
At 840kg, it’s 14kg lighter than the most featherweight modern-day VW – the Up – and near enough half the weight of a MK7.5 GTI. Right-hand drive cars arrived in the UK in 1979.
Top Gear reviews the Volkswagen Golf. The car that will cover 99.9 percent of the population's needs. How is the Mk7 Golf? Full review inside.
This is the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. It’s VW’s headline act for the Worthersee show, but rather than being an unrealistic, cartoonish concept, it’s a car we’ll actually be able to buy.
But with the same power as the old GTI Performance on tap, it’s fast enough to feel exciting, surging from 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds and hitting a 155mph top speed. It sounds better, too.
The Mk1 Golf GTI is credited with starting the hot hatchback genre, while the latest, Mk7 version has taken the name into unchartered, 300bhp, sports car-slaying territory.
