[VIDEO] VW Golf 7 GTI gets tested by Autocar

The Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI has been recently taken for a spin by the guys at Autocar.

The new generation of the Volkswagen Golf, in its most interesting version yet, the GTI, is ending up in our news once again and, after being unveiled just earlier this year, and then making its way into several markets, time has come to see how the model performs in a test drive. The footage posted below is showing the new generation of the Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI being tested by Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe, so if you’re interested in what the editor has to say about it, you should scroll down and click play.

As a quick reminder, the new generation of the Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI is riding on the same MQB platform as the regular Golf, as the new Seat Leon or the new Audi A3. The model is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder direct injected petrol engine, from the EA888 series, which is producing a total output of 220 PS (162 kW). The new VW Golf GTI is now available, for the first time in history, with a more powerful version, named the Golf GTI Performance. This is getting 230 PS (169 kW). Both versions get the 6-speed transmission and the stop/start as standard.
