Volkswagen Golf GTI Eight-Generation

Refine, refine, refine. That's how the Germans do and that continues to be the case with one of VW's most iconic models, the Golf GTI. After 44 years, the company has introduced its eighth-generation model with big upgrades to its technology and performance to create the perfect Golf GTI for today. As would expect, the styling isn't a dramatic departure but gets a sleeker and slightly more aggressive look while still keeping those familiar design elements we've all come to love. 

On the performance front, the GTI boasts a 245 hp 2.0L turbocharged engine with 273 lb-ft of torque. This is coupled with a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Additional equipment include a lane assist system, front assist, XDS electronic differential lock, LED lighting throughout, USB-C ports, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a rear diffuser, a roof spoiler, individualized tailpipes, red brake calipers, and a .6-inch lower sport suspension.
