New Mk7 Golf GTI is Out

It’s that time of year again where VW release a new GTI and we all wait for the reviews to see if Volkswagen have made a car that lives up to the legendary ‘GTI’ name.

First of all, lets have a look at the spec of the new GTI. Unlike the previous GTIs, the mk7 comes in two power options, a 220PS version and a ‘GTI Performance’ 23oPS version.  The GTI Performance pack also gives you bigger front breaks and a LSD (nice addition). The new car comes loaded with loads of tech as you would expect and has a starting price of £25,845 on the road.

I ma usual a fan of the new GTIs from Volkswagen (as you would expect from a man who runs a VW forum and site), but the reviews so far are far from blinding. but before that, lets have a look at the car in question.

The overall opinion of the mk7 seems to be that VW have played it safe. From the power figures we can already see that there are a number of other ‘Hot Hatches’ on the market that boast more power and performance than the new GTI. I know that VW usually release a ‘R’ Golf later in the marks life, but even with that in mind the ‘king of hot hatched’ seems a little limp.

It does look good though :).

Now to see if Mann Egerton will let me have a go :).
