The Volkswagen Golf GTI is arguably the first performance hot hatch in the world, making its debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in Germany way back in September 1975. At the time, it came with a fuel-injected 4-cylinder paired with a four-speed manual transmission and was capable of 0-60 mph in around 10 seconds with a top speed of 113 mph, which may not sound much now, but was phenomenal by 1975 standards. Things have changed over the last 47 years, and fast forward to 2022, and the Golf GTI is in its eight-generation or Mk8 avatar - the most powerful Golf GTI to date. However, does the 2022 VW Golf GTI, aka the Mk8 Golf GTI, have what it takes to secure a spot in your Milwaukee, WI garage? Let us find out at Hall Imports in Brookfield, WI.
The 2022 Golf GTI comes in three trims – S, SE, and Autobahn - equipped with a standard 2.0L turbocharged engine which can be paired with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. This engine makes 241 horses and 273 pound-feet of torque, enough to launch the Golf GTI from 0 to 60 miles an hour in a mere 5.6 seconds and the quarter-mile run in just 13.6 seconds! So that you don't miss out on performance, no matter which trims you choose. And despite all this power, the new Golf GTI is pretty fuel-efficient too, offering an EPA-estimated 25 MPG in the city and up to 34 MPG on the highway.
The 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI is designed to look sportier and fiercer than the standard Golf. It has a wider stance and comes with unique LED fog lights, a shark fin antenna, and 18-inch 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels to set it apart. While on the inside, you get a plethora of features in the sporty yet engaging cabin that is packed with all the features you need, including an 8.25-inch touchscreen multimedia display or a Discover Pro 10-inch touchscreen navigation system.
The top-of-the-line 2022 Golf GTI Autobahn edition is even better equipped with many more standard features, including:
Volkswagen has left no stone unturned in making sure the 2022 Golf GTI outclasses the competition and has created a fiercely competitive sports hot hatch with a competitive price tag of $29,880 starting MSRP.
