2023 Volkswagen Golf GTI Specs, Price, Features, Mileage and Review
The Volkswagen Golf GTI has been around for decades and is still the cherry on top of this sundae of tasty, amusing little vehicles. It was the first hot-hatchback vehicle. The GTI had a facelift for the 2022 model year that offered it new aesthetics and more modern interior comforts, but it still has the driving enjoyment that has made it a performance icon. The car’s 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine has 241 horsepower. To drive the front wheels, we have a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission. It boasts a big interior, both in the front and the rear, and there is a ton of space for cargo beneath the hatchback door, just like every GTI since the nameplate’s inception. Whether you are new to fast boxes on wheels or a loyal GTI supporter from the beginning, this most recent model is just as enjoyable as when the original first made it to these shores. For a GTI turned up to eleven, have a look at the Golf R (reviewed separately), which has 315 horsepower, standard all-wheel drive, and similarly superb handling.
