Volkswagen Golf GTI MK7 (with performance pack)
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI is, without any shadow of a doubt, the best Golf GTI ever, which was not easy to achieve given that the MK6 was really rather good. So what's different? Well, the new GTI benefits from a revised front and rear end, a higher quality cabin, and more technology. Those are the things drivers will immediately notice about the MK7 GTI. Under the hood, there is another 2.0-litre TSI (turbocharged and supercharged) petrol engine, but this time, it is more powerful; with the optional performance pack the MK7 GTI has a healthy 227 bhp and 258 lb /ft of torque, which is comparable to the MK6 Edition 30. Power is sent through either a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed double-clutch DSG gearbox to the front wheels, and VW have worked hard to make sure it can handle the grunt, with the new GTI featuring all-new adaptive suspension. Until a MK7 Golf R is released, the Golf GTI is the hottest Golf that money can buy. For 90% of the thrills and 10% better economy, check out the Golf GTD, an equally impressive car running on the fuel of Satan.
