If you’re the type of driver who puts performance first—the kind who gets excited when you hear about the low CoG of a boxer engine and the on-edge performance of symmetrical AWD—the W...

Power Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"The GTIs engine makes less HP . . . but more torque. combined with the feisty nature and broader powerband it has the real-world advantage. Its lighter weight and more fuel-efficient engine makes it easier to own and operate. Kudos to the well-sorted (and larger brakes) on the GTI as well. "
Handling Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"The GTIs suspension is MUCH better sorted - no AWD weight penalty to drag around and varying levels of Electronic Stability Control to allow the GTI to perform to the level of the driver."
Looks/Style Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"The all-new GTI has an upscale exterior with clean, crisp lines and immediate exterior shape that identifies it as the evolutionary continuation of one of the most successful vehicle designs in history. Standard LED exterior and ambient interior lights give a nod to upscale and buttoned-down functionality."
Front Seats Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"Form fitting and supportive - with classic pattern and high-caliber fit and finish of traditional cloth & Alcantara. they have a soft, suede-like microfiber pile and unmatched durability."
Back Seats Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"Awesome fit, finish and practical with a 60/40 split AND a standard arm-rest with pass-through to maximize cargo carrying capabilities."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"simply put - a hatchback vs a sedan - maximizes cargo and allows for the transport of larger, bulky items that cannot fit in the traditional dimensional limitations of a trunk."
Family Car Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"Much more practical cargo capacity and hauling ability. The 2-box shape of the GTI maximizes interior space and actually allows it to be classified as a Mid-size car due to overall volume - while still possessing compact-car exterior dimensions."
Would Buy Ranked 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S FWD better.
"Better value for the money and resale value."
