VW Golf GTI 2021 review – is the MK8 the best yet?

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

The all-new Golf GTI is HERE!

Volkswagen’s mid-level sporty edition of the Mk8 Golf rolls up with all the classic hot hatch styling cues you’d expect, from the classic red striping across the bonnet (and throughout the cabin!) along with a more aggressive, honeycomb-style grille.

As for performance, well it’s certainly not too bad, as you’ll find a 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that will deliver 245hp and 370Nm.

Sure, so it all sounds pretty good! The question is, does it really offer enough to sway you away from the competition? And more importantly, with the new Golf R already announced and just around the corner, are you better off just waiting for the GTI’s big brother?

There’s only one way to find out… Sit back, relax, and join Mat for his latest in-depth review!

    Let's face it, we're spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a new hot hatch in 2020! But is the new Golf GTI the best of the bunch? Or would you rather go for something like the new Audi S3? Let us know in the COMMENTS!

    Really hate the rims other than that it's a very cool car

    This is a huge letdown overall. Hopefully the Golf R fares better, though the interior will obviously still be the same junk as this.

    Don’t like the new rims and deleting the center sequential shifter and replacing it with that silly little gear selector is a mistake in my opinion. More HP & torque is always good.

    Surely they’ve messed up the styling. The front is probably meant to look mean and moody but it just looks stupid!

    Volkswagen going back to their roots, making the wheels a swastika with an extra spoke, nice

    The new design of the wheels is absolutely horrendous

    It's the ugliest GTI to date

  • Peter Barber

    Front end styling is too fussy and wheels are terrible. Could be so much better with a few detail changes.

    i only realised that the front has a monobrow after matt said it so… didn't appreciate that just like seeing the frog on the model 3 front.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Dieselgate has a lot to answer for regarding the build quality on all new VW group products including the new Audi A3. They've had to cut corners on the quality side. Hopefully the next all new cars in 5 years will be back to the quality we expect from them…

    I'm sorry, but those wheels… I would like to know the thought process of putting those wheels on this or, for that matter, any other car.

    GTI used to be great now there just slow and heavy, save up a few more pennies and go for the R sure it will be a lot more fun!

    I think the Golf GTi has had its day; its a 80/90's car and should be a historic relic of classic cars. VW should move forward using new tech etc and putting investment into building better quality (ref iD3 review) or simply electrify their range like what PSA group has with the C4 as an example.

    Just hate hate hate that new dash on all of the new golfs including this one.. just looks aweful… Cheap nasty gloss black plastic.. with really crappy graphics on the dash and main screen… Just horrible.. IMO one of the worst interiors of any new car.. disgusting.

    Golf 7 GTI and R were perfectly designed in opinion, the 8 just doesnt do it for me in any way

  • martin hanssson

    I would rather buy a two year old golf R for less money. But that just me.

    November 26, 2020

    £33k for a Golf GTi? 😂😂😂

    Not a fan a step back from the old one looks more like a vauxhall astra than a golf.

    I think I’ll much rather have the Golf 7/7.5 R especially a 3 door of possible!

    Engineer here: the old gti had a Cd of 0.31, by reducing it down by 0.3 mat is saying this has a Cd of 0.01 which would make this by far the most aerodynamic object, never mind car, ever made which is obviously not true and makes no sense, I think he meant 0.03 less than the old golf, also you are an absolute plonker if you buy one of these over a yaris gr, if u need to carry people bugger off and buy a skoda superb

    I am not a VW fan. But the Golf GTI has always caught my attention. It always looked the part & that is important. That is…until now. Now, it just looks cheap. I don't know. In my opinion VW dropped the ball on this one.

    Sehr schöne Offenbarung . so kocht VW auch nur mit Wasser.0 auf 100 in 6,5 Sekunden . Kein Wunder Mr.Watson . sie sind einfach zu fett für das Auto .
