Ten Second Review

The Volkswagen Golf GTI wears one of the most iconic badges around and this Mk7 model is a class act. Now available only in this 245PS 'Performance' guise, the GTI is spacious, quick, well built and surprisingly efficient. Three doors or five, manual gearbox or semi-auto, this one's still the best all-rounder in the hot hatch division.

Background

Just as the hot hatch class as a whole has been through lean years and good times, that's also been the case with the Golf GTI. And although it's grown into an automotive icon, there were long periods when the Golf GTI wasn't the best car in its class. That changed with the introduction of the Mk5 back in 2004; a car that saw the Golf charge back to the head of the class. The evolutionary Golf Mk6 continued that trend in 2008 but towards the end of its life, the GTI Mk6 was beginning to come under challenge from a whole host of hugely talented rivals. Volkswagen's answer was this seventh generation Golf GTI, launched in 2013 and updated in 2017. Here's a model that's been redesigned from the ground up and which offers more choice, better value, more efficiency and, in this Performance Pack guise, equipped with more than double the power of the original Golf GTI. That 1976 car was designed to be an affordable and practical performance hatch that you could use every day. Is that the case with this latest version? Let's find out.

Driving Experience

Before we get too involved with how this thing gets around corners, it's probably worth getting a few of the numbers out of the way. This Golf GTI Performance model puts out 245PS, which will send this 1330kg car to 62mph in 6.2 seconds on the way to a 155mph top end. From that base point you have basically two major decisions to make; whether to opt for three doors or five. And whether to stick with the manual gearbox or plump for the DSG twin-clutch transmission. As part of the Performance Pack, you get bigger brake discs and an electronically controlled clutch pack in the differential, which directs the nose into corners more keenly, but doesn't tug on the steering wheel as a traditional mechanical system will. The biggest issue for us in choosing the spec of this car would concern transmission. There's no doubt that the slick six-speed manual gearbox offers a much closer bond with the car and rewards driver skill, but on the schlep home from work when I'm stuck in traffic and I'm just looking forward to a cup of tea and putting my feet up, the DSG seems worth every penny. You might well ask what is the point of buying a GTI if not for driver involvement, but remember, this isn't a car in the vein of a Renaultsport Megane. Yes, you could conceivably take it on a track day and you'd probably have a lot of fun, but it's a more mature and versatile proposition. You feel it in that classy suspension, in the slick electrically assisted steering system and in a hundred and one other feel-good measures that Volkswagen seems to excel at.

Design and Build

If you had to pick one word to describe the GTI's exterior design, it would probably be 'subtle' but then this is a model that's never been about lairy spoilers and drainpipe exhausts. Instead you get a car that sits 15mm lower to the road than its humbler siblings, the 18-inch alloy wheels filling the arches purposefully. As is usually the case, the three-door car looks a bit better than the five-door body, the longer doors having the visual effect of lengthening and lowering the profile. Drop inside and you'll be greeted by some fairly loud 'Jacara' tartan cloth upholstery. Should that prove a bit too much for you, Volkswagen can happily deliver your Golf with black leather seats instead, for a fee of course. Regular Golf drivers will feel instantly at home here and then go about playing a game of spot the GTI bits. They include a sports steering wheel with red stitching and a GTI face plate, a black roof lining and some rather 'Hamburg night club' red ambience lighting. There's also a bespoke gear lever and instrument cluster, GTI trim strips and stainless steel pedal caps. It's just enough to make the GTI feel special inside without going too over the top.

Market and Model

Prices start at around £30,000 for a three-door manual Golf GTI Performance. Add about £650 more for the five-door model. Tempted by the DSG twin-clutch transmission? I can see why you might be although you'll need to budget around £1,500 for that particular upgrade, which means that before you've started thinking about bigger alloy wheels or the Dynamic Chassis Control, you're already be spending over £32,000 for a five-door GTI. As you might expect, it's fairly easy to specify one to well over £33,000 where the Golf runs into the immovable object that is the BMW M140 - then there's the £33,000 310PS AWD Golf R to consider. Whichever GTI spec you choose, you'll get a colour touch screen front and centre on the dash, a DAB digital radio, a CD player, an MDI interface for connecting iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth telephone preparation and audio streaming and eight speakers.

Cost of Ownership

The Performance Pack option has virtually no impact on efficiency and when it comes to a performance versus efficiency equation, the Golf GTI is genuinely tough to beat. Choose the manual gearbox and you'll manage around 47mpg while emitting just 148g/km. That's very good going for a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 230-245PS. To put in perspective quite how impressive the Golf's efficiency is, consider that the Renaultsport Clio 200, a less powerful car that campaigns in the class below, can only manage 44.8 miles from a gallon of petrol and will emit 144 grammes of CO2 for every kilometre travelled. It's all down to the fact that this Mk7 GTI is relatively light and efficient, thanks to its hi-tech MQB chassis. You also get fuel saving features such as stop/start and smarter aerodynamics. There's no efficiency penalty if you opt for the DSG gearbox.
