VW Golf GTI: Driving report with 7th generation, no flaws found!

VW Golf GTI

Nice video driving report here with the new VW Golf GTI which seems to have no flaws!

Although the car’s power may seem not enough compared to its rivals, the increase in torque is quite impressive – from 280 Nm (206.5 lb-ft) in the Golf GTI Mk6 to 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) in the new model. This helps the Golf GTI Mk7 accelerate more quickly and puts it on par with the more hardcore VW Scirocco R.

The car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a decent 6.4 seconds, but what stands out from the magazine’s review is the all-round capability of the VW Golf GTI, which can be a perfectly valid day to day car as well as a precise track toy.
