Volkswagen Golf GTI (Mk7) review

£18,325 - £31,020
Published: 06 Jan 2020


What should I be paying?

It won’t be long before VW takes the Mk7 Golf GTI off sale, so if you want one you’d better hurry up. Prices start at £33,180 for the GTI Performance Pack, making it pretty expensive for what it is - the Ford Focus ST, Renault Megane RS and Hyundai i30N all start at under £30,000. The TCR costs £37,830, making it more expensive than the all-wheel drive, 300bhp-odd Golf R.

At least you don’t need to spend much on options - the GTI Performance gets pretty much everything you might want as standard, from adaptive cruise control, to electric/heated everything via a CarPlay-compatible infotainment system. We might consider adding the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) for £875.

VW claims 37.7mpg, which is about right (and better than what you’ll get from the Ford or Hyundai), but if you spend lots of time driving around town expect to average nearer 30mpg. 143g/km of CO2 isn’t bad either. 

The warranty is three years/60,000 miles.
