Is the new VW Golf GTI MK8 good enough?

Coronavirus: Click here for advice for car buying during the pandemic –

INTRODUCING the new Volkswagen Golf GTI! It’s the hot version of the recently revealed Golf Mk8, and it pulls up with a 2-litre turbocharged engine that’ll produce 245hp! What’s more, for the more economical or eco-friendly of you, you can choose from either the GTD or GTE as well! We’re yet to know the price of the new GTI, but with expectations that it’ll start from £30,000, should you rush out to put your order down? Or are you better off waiting for the upcoming new Golf R?! Stick with Mat to find out!

They've ruined the styling. This one looks fat and bloated.

Exterior looks crap and cheap, downmarket. Interior is like a brothel.

What. Did he say 17 inch wheels. I really don’t like the look of this. Mk7 looks way better. Come on vw.

So, apparently, I'm the only person in the entire world who likes it. The Golf 7.5 GTI was fantastic and very good looking, but i like the VIII more from the back, it's a bit sharper, and the interior that, in the previous model, the central console was a big slab of buttons.

Makes little sense if they are getting more expensive and electric are getting cheaper. Oil addicted VW need to get with the times. I still find all their cars dull and boring looking

Yeah it looks awful… especially after how good the mk5,6,7&7.5 looked the 8 did have a lot to live up to, but that should’ve made it easier to make this look good… they’ve messed it up imo

Shame about the power too… a mk5 gti stage 1 gives you the same power, better yet an edition 30 has near enough the same amount of power from the start…

Disappointed in all honesty, the looks don’t do it.

Oh dear, I saw pre-launch pictures that looked fantastic, but maybe I was mistaken and it was one of those 'artistic interpretations' of what the MK8 GTI was going to look like. How disappointing that it looks so tame and pedestrian. Just call it the new Golf Frumpy Mc Frump Face. BOO!
