Volk­swa­gen Golf GTI

Volk­swa­gen has evolved

the sev­enth gen­er­a­tion GTI only ever so slightly, im­prov­ing 10 per cent of pretty much ev­ery one of the hot-hatch­back’s com­po­nents. That 10 per cent ac­counts for a sig­nif­i­cant leap, ac­tu­ally, when you con­sider that the car­ried-over 2.0-litre four-pot gains an en­tirely new cylin­der head de­sign and turbo trick­ery, im­proved sus­pen­sion and brakes, 42kg less weight thanks to the new MQB mod­u­lar plat­form, bet­ter in­fo­tain­ment, and hugely ef­fec­tive elec­tronic driver as­sists. The GTI Per­for­mance Pack is 10bhp stronger than the stock GTI, and gets torque vec­tor­ing and elec­tronic limited slip dif­fer­en­tial.
