Then you'll hate the GTI because it doesn't have it.

Features

As Australia's fifth-most popular hatchback in 2020, Volkswagen has had to throw more features at the new Golf to try and entice buyers to move away form the segment-leading Toyota Corolla, Hyundai i30 and Mazda 3.

The eponymous Golf trim serves as the base upon which everything is added. As standard, it features:
10.25-inch digital cockpit (static)
8.25-inch infotainment display
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Tri-zone climate control
Cloth seats
LED front and rear lights
16-inch 'Norfolk' wheels
Multi-link rear suspension
Black roof rails (wagon only)
Stepping up to the Life, buyers get more kit as standard as well as the optional packs which can't be added to the base model:

10.25-inch digital cockpit pro (animated and customisable)
10-inch innovision cockpit with touch buttons and sliders
Smartphone mirroring and wireless charging
Satellite navigation
Comfort or comfort sports seats
Keyless entry and starting
17-inch 'Ventura' wheels
Electric tailgate (wagon only)
Chrome roof rails (wagon only)
R-Line owners get the biggest upgrades before moving up to the GTI, still based on the same platform as the Golf and Life but with:

R-Line sports bumpers
15mm lowered suspension
Progressive steering rack from GTI and R
Sports seats
'Performance' headlights
18-inch wheels
Finally the performance focused GTI, scoring much of the same trim as the R-Line but with a few additions:

GTI-specific digital cockpit pro dash
GTI front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper and spoiler
Iconic GTI grille strip with parallel LED strips in headlights
Honeycomb intake and fog lights
Sports seats with integrated head restraints, tartan fabric with red trim
Flat-bottom steering wheel
18-inch 'Richmond' wheels
Adaptive chassis control
XDL electronic differential lock
2021 Volkswagen Mark 8 Golf GTI 68797312
Engine, drivetrain and fuel economy

All Golfs, bar the GTI, are powered by the same 1.4-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which has been found in the outgoing Mk7 110TSI models, making 110kW and 250Nm.

Power is sent to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission, as is found in the base trim only, or an eight-speed Aisin torque-converter automatic, helping to achieve fuel-economy figures of 6.0L and 5.8L/100km respectively.

The GTI gets the fourth-generation EA888 engine, a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder unit which punches out 180kW and 370Nm, delivering power to the front tyres via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

2021 Volkswagen Mark 8 Golf GTI 68818312
Safety

All Golf variants scored five-stars in ANCAP safety testing, with a 95 per cent score for adult occupant protection, 89 per cent for children, 76 per cent for vulnerable road users and 80 per cent for its safety assistance systems.



Inside every Golf is a range of safety features to protect those in the cabin, including:
Driver's airbag
Front passenger airbag
Front side airbags
Rear side airbags
Curtain airbags, front and rear
Front and rear seat belt tensioners
IsoFix and top tether child seat anchors
Proactive occupant protection system
Multi-collision brake
Front and rear seat belt unfastened warning
The Volkswagen IQ.DRIVE system is also standard across the range, implementing technology to prevent accidents with features such as:

Travel, lane, side and park assist
Front assist with pedestrian and cyclist monitoring
Adaptive cruise control
Oncoming vehicle braking when turning
Driver fatigue detection
Rear traffic alert
Rear view camera
Emergency assist
Exit warning system
Parking distance sensors, front and rear
Manoeuvre braking, front and rear
Tyre pressure loss indicator (TLPI)
2021 Volkswagen Mark 8 Golf Life 68664312
Dimensions

Exterior measurements for the GTI hatch have changed slightly from the Mk7.5, now standing at 4287mm in length (9mm increase), 1789mm wide (10mm decrease), 1463mm tall (21mm increase) and with a wheelbase of 2631mm (5mm increase).

Weight sits between 1270kg for the base model Golf and 1409kg for the GTI, the heaviest of the range.

Boot space with the rear seats up has changed by a litre, now at 381L, but as dropped by 53L with the back seats down to now hold 1237L.

No measurements for the wagon have yet been released.

2021 Volkswagen Mark 8 Golf GTI 68765812
Warranty and servicing

All Golf models are covered by Volkswagen's five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty with one year of roadside assistance included.

Servicing is available under one of two plans through VW for both the standard Golf and GTI variants.
Golf, Golf Life and Golf R-Line buyers can purchase either a three-year/45,000km service pack for $1100 or a five-year/75,000km pack for $1900, providing savings of around $200 to $800 off the cost of the assured price servicing.

GTI owners can be covered for the same period at a cost of $1450 for the three-year pack or $2300 for five, again representing a saving of between $200 and $900 given the 60,000km DSG service on the GTI is a major one.

2021 Volkswagen Mark 8 Golf GTI 68751812
Availability

All regular Golf hatch variants as well as the GTI are now available to purchase, though the Wagon is expected to land in July.

Production could soon slow down though due to a global semiconductor shortage, hampering Golfs with the Harman Kardon sound system as well as the GTI's DSG gearbox.

Default 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI Track Drive Review

Quote:
2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI Track Drive Review: LSD For Everyone

VW's hot hatch is back and better than ever!

The Volkswagen Golf GTI used to be a secret just for the enthusiasts. It was based on the plain old Golf, which kept buyers unaware, but we know that the hot hatch is one of the best all-rounders on the market today. It does speed, it does comfort, it does handling. It has a hatch for cargo, and it'll fit four adults. It even gets good gas mileage.

So, when VW canceled everything but the GTI and R for the eighth-generation compact hatch in the US, we were only mildly concerned. The alternative option was canceling the fun Golfs and keeping the basic ones or killing it in the US altogether. We think VW made the right choice here and were elated when the company invited us out to our local, Metro Detroit race track for some hot laps in the upcoming vehicle, as well as an autocross course, to show us what it could do.

What's New For Gen 8?

While it shares the same platform as the old GTI, the Mk8 GTI has reconfigured wishbone bearings and revised damping hydraulics. The springs and buffer stops are reconfigured as well, to give a front axle spring rate 5% higher than the last one. It also features an aluminum subframe that saves 7 pounds and revised multilink rear suspension.

Volkswagen's Vehicle Dynamics Manager debuts here, combining the electronic stability control (ESC) with the electronic differential (XDS) and the optional DCC adaptive damping system. It adjusts 200 times a second, but the key here is the limited-slip differential. It uses all those systems above to optimize grip in fast corners by sending power to the wheel with the most traction. In the sportier drive modes, it acts faster and more often, and when you turn the ESC off, it gets even better.

The new car is a full 4 seconds faster over VW's Ehra-Lessien test track, and that's mostly due to its handling. Horsepower is up from 228 hp to 241 hp while torque swells from 258 lb-ft to 273 lb-ft. Another big addition is the new speed-related brakes that offer a normal response when at normal speeds but quicker engagement at higher speeds.

Track Impressions: Limitless Grip

This is what we were thinking about when entering the first left-right combination at the M1 Concourse racetrack in Pontiac, Michigan. It's a condo-style short track with about 1.4 miles of length and about ten turns depending on how you count them. For the first time, we were running the course counterclockwise, which added some new challenges. But VW's front limited-slip differential is what made this drive so enjoyable and controllable, both on the road course and later the autocross.

VW threw some Bridgestone Potenza R tires on the front wheels of the GTI, which seemed to give it almost unlimited stick. VW reps said that the GTI won't come with these extraordinarily expensive and grippy rubbers, but something offering similar performance, of which there are few. Between those tires and the differential, as long as you stayed on the gas, understeer - where the front end loses grip - was basically eliminated.

After the first left-right there is a gentle left, followed by an easy hairpin left, then a straightaway. The GTI's adaptive damping absorbs the blow when cutting the curbs, never sending the front end off course. About two-thirds of the way through that hairpin, we were back on the gas hard, listening to that outside tire struggling for grip, but always pointing us towards the inside.

Pinning it down the first straight, which was faster going in the new direction, brings you to a tight hairpin, necessitating a hard brake from about 110 mph to about 30 mph. It tightens, which meant more time for that outside tire to power us back in the other direction, before a shorter straight leads into a full-speed sweeper to the right ending in a 90-degree turn at the end. No matter how hard, or how many times we hit the brakes, they were always there, fade-free, and with little pedal travel. That made us feel safe no matter how hard we overcooked it.

Autocross Impressions: LSD Magic

Moving to the autocross course, we turned the ESC off, to use that front diff as much as possible. And here it works even better than on the road course. If you've ever driven a jet ski, you know that the turning is based on power. If you let off the throttle, the ski just plows forward. It was the same here. No matter how close you are to hitting cones, you need to stay on the power. All of the torque goes to that outside front wheel, and instead of pushing outward, it feels like it's pulling you towards the apex of the turn. And that, along with those stiff brakes, will keep you confident at any speed, in any corner, on any racetrack.
The difficulty on the autocross course only revealed itself in the slalom, where the steering wheel was close to its center, meaning the ratio was slower. We had to whip the wheel 90 degrees one way, then 180 degrees the other way, then back, a few times. We'll always take a quicker steering ratio than a slower one, like the Alfa Romeo Giulia, which almost turns before your brain tells your hands to move.

Interior Highs And Lows

One thing we noticed here, and on the autocross course, were the plaid-patterned seats. They're comfortable for normal driving, but we could have used some extra thigh bolsters on the short track. And if we were being greedy, a soft place for our knee to land when we're bracing our body around a turn. Either one would work, and for buyers who plan on regularly tracking their cars, the seats would be a good first upgrade. Otherwise, like the last few, this GTI is a peach.
There's also a lot of buttons on the steering wheel, which is great for normal driving. But on the track, we hit the steering wheel heat button, the driver-assist buttons, and the volume button as we were trying not to pretzel our arms around the tighter bends. While we're on the steering feel, it was nicely weighted, and firms up considerably as you get further off-center. GTIs have always been good at this.

It's important to remember that this is only a track drive, and we expect to get the 2022 VW Golf GTI on the street soon. But what we've learned here is that the more aggressively you drive the hot hatch, the better it responds and that limited-slip differentials should be on all front-wheel-drive cars, especially if they work as well as this one does. Add to that what we know about the GTI in general, and we can predict another winner here. If not in sales, certainly in our hearts.
It goes on sale in the fourth quarter of this year, and with the demise of the Ford Focus ST, it'll have its sights set squarely on the Hyundai Veloster N.

I skimmed the article, but it sounds like they're saying it's 4 seconds faster than the previous GTI - but they went around the track in the opposite direction and threw on expensive sticky tires? Way to compare apples to hand grenades, guys, good work.

I'm meh on the body. Some things I like, some I don't. This particular car is the SE trim which now comes standard with tartan cloth seats instead of leather. I don't like how they upped the price on the SE AND took away features. Leather is now optional. DCC isn't. So the Autobahn has DCC standard as well as leather that now has ventilated front and rear seats.

I like this new gray on the body. So we may just pick up a base car since it comes with the diff and the brakes. Will pick up some suspension upgrades and wheels and tires. I like the new seats and the tartan so that's fine, and I'll live without the moonroof. Waiting on the R until this color or something equivalent is available.

The no knobs gets a zonk from me. So does comparing a GTI to the CTR. The heated steering wheel thing is limited to the Autobahn package, so a non issue.

Would like to have heated and cooled seats tho. My daughter got to ride shotgun when we picked up our x-mas tree, and now she wants the heated seats all the time in the second row.

Upon further inspection the GTI seems a bit under stated and I suppose that is intention, i.e. to differentiate it from the STI and CTR. In all honesty the Autobahn is the most appealing, however with a starting price at $37,995, I would pass and spend the money else where.

The GR Corolla, if it comes with all the GR Yaris bits, will surely throw a monkey wrench in this market segment.

From the looks of it, my exhaust might bolt right up? Which would save me some money.

Also, the MK8 GTI has a lot of MK7.5 GTI Clubsport and R parts on and in it. And it runs a Garrett turbo vs. the old IHI. Fueling pressure is higher plus connecting rods are the beefy ones from the R. Aluminum front subframe is standard as are the MK7.5 Clubsport sway bars and stiffer front springs. The diff oil cooler and water pump are newly revised units and the DSG and manual trans part numbers are different. Carriers knuckles and bushings are a mish mash of Clubsport and R and regular MK7.5 GTI parts.

Overall I'm pretty excited that this car has gotten a thorough upgrade from my MK7.5. And all of the parts I want to upgrade such as brake pads and stainless lines and the Ohlins DFV coilovers are all readily available because they are carry overs.

The problem with this generation is that while the GTI isn't bad, it's really not any better than the MK7. There are some slight power and handling improvements but they went backwards in quality and interior so it's kind of a sideways car. Also the appearance is maybe slightly less handsome than MK7.5. Considering this could be the last ICE GTI it seems like a bit of a miss for VW. I will definitely pass on the Golf R for now and wait and see what the MK8.5 changes bring.

This is nuts, the base model gets a volume and tuning knob!!!

Also VW made it easier to access the traction control/sport modes which is good. But climate controls are still a mess.

So I semi-hope this is happening: look at the steering wheel for the good bits, look at the ridiculous screen for the bad bits.

That steering wheel is nothing new. The current Golf 8 already uses that on lower trim models available overseas. Higher trim models including the GTI use the haptic feedback "buttons".
