2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Pros

For 2021, the Golf and Golf GTI both carry over with minimal changes.

2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Model Highlights

The popular Volkswagen Golf is offered in a 4-door hatchback form. The Golf 1.4 T is powered by a 147-horsepower turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder. In the Golf hatchback, this is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Golf GTI comes with a potent turbocharged and intercooled 2.0L 4-cylinder that produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and is offered with a choice of either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission.

The Golf 1.4T model is offered only in the TSI trim for 2021. Standard equipment on the Golf TSI includes a power tilting panoramic sunroof, rain sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, LED brake lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the TSI gets a leatherette wrapped steering wheel along with heated, power reclining front seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth audio streaming, keyless entry and a 6.5-inch infotainment screen. Safety items include a Pedestrian Monitoring System, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring and a forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking.

GTIs come in S, SE and Autobahn trims. In S trim, the GTI offers LED fog lights, heated mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels, while inside there's plaid cloth upholstery with heated front seats, a cooled glovebox, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth, the 6.5-inch touchscreen and a rearview camera.

In the GTI SE, there's a sunroof and leather upholstery. GTI Autobahn models add a Fender audio system, adaptive LED headlights and various performance upgrades like bigger brakes plus enhanced handling thanks to adaptive damping and a larger rear stabilizer bar. Dual-zone climate control, navigation and a 10-way power driver seat round out the selection.

All Golfs come with standard safety features that include anti-lock brakes, traction control and engine braking assist, plus a host of airbags to protect the cabin.

2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Model News

Few cars have the staying power or instant recognition of the Volkswagen Golf and the seventh-generation Golf picks up right where its predecessor left off--with even more to like. As a leader in the busy hatchback segment, the Golf is loaded with standard features, excellent ergonomics, and plenty of practical space for passengers and cargo. Turbocharged power gives the Golf just enough pep. The GTI is perennially lauded in the "hot hatch" segment. The all-electric e-Golf is as economical as they come. Overall, the VW Golf family offers tremendous value and flexibility for anyone interested in owning one.
