2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Review


A cool look for a hot hatch.

Stylish, sporty, and endlessly iconic, the original hatch will always put design at the forefront.

There’s a lot to stare at inside too.

The cockpit’s exhilarating too.




High-tech street smarts.

Words alone won’t do this justice. Because with the Golf GTI, high performance and high style combine to create a unique driving experience. The Top Sport seats are expertly designed, and the instrumentation is handsome to view. Everywhere you look—from the Clark Plaid seating surfaces to the leather-wrapped, multifunction sport steering wheel—you’ll see the Golf GTI is engineered to get a reaction out of you and the cars you pass.

We’ve put high-tech well within reach.

When it comes to tech, available features abound in the Golf GTI, offering:
-8″ glass touchscreen display
-Touchscreen navigation system
-Multifunction Display (MFD)

License to fully rock out.

With its innovative features and a variety of premium content, the available SiriusXM with 360L curates a personalized experience for every driver. Try it out with a three-month All Access trial subscription. When amplified by the available Fender® Premium Audio System, your new VW becomes a front seat to heart-thumping live performances by your favorite artists.

Keyless access with push-button start.

Tech plays a major role in the Golf GTI. The available keyless access lets you lock, unlock, start, and drive your car without ever having to take your keys out of your pocket. Press the brake and push the start button, and your engine’s running and ready.

Take your apps for a ride.

To start App-Connect, simply plug in your compatible smartphone or connect it wirelessly and watch as your select apps appear on the touchscreen display of your Volkswagen.


Fun-to-drive has never felt so powerful.

The Golf GTI is more than just a 4-wheeled machine – it’s a force. With bold looks, a 2.0L turbocharged engine, and an Autobahn-tuned sport suspension, the Golf GTI can truly bring the heat.

Take the wheel, challenge the road.

Feel exhilaration to the next level with available racing-inspired paddle shifters.

Your way and the highway.

From maneuvering on straightaways to cornering the tightest of turns, Autobahn-tuned sport suspension can help you stay the course.


We can’t predict. But we can engineer.

Safety is a core value to us. And while we can’t predict everything you might encounter, we can and do spend long hours trying to help you prepare for it.

Stay focused.

Benefit from the view of a wide lens when you want it. It can help you see obstacles when backing up, a feature so helpful you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.

We’re rigid about safety.

Front and rear crumple zones help absorb crash energy, while a rigid safety cage helps distribute forces away from the driver and passengers.

Intelligent by design.

In the event of a collision that deploys the airbags16, the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights.15 It helps react if you might not be able to.

We think ahead.

Not every collision brings a car to stop. That’s why our vehicles include the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

Safety. Engineered from the ground up.

Monitoring and maintaining proper air pressure in your tires helps with efficiency and safety. The TPMS helps alert you to a loss of tire pressure so you know when to add air.

Equipped for peace of mind.

From Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), which helps maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard-braking situation, to Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most, your vehicle is equipped with a total of six stability-enhancing systems.
