Truth be told, I’m a big hatchback fan and a big VW GTI fan, so this may be a bit biased, but I’ll try to keep it objective. I had an 02 VW GTI 337, which was a great car and never gave me any trouble. Volkswagens have always been fun cars, from the first MK1 GTI, but many people thought the MK5 gained a bit too much weight. This MK7 VW GTI has gone on a significant diet courtesy of VW’s new aluminum intensive MQB platform. Is the original hot hatch still king of the hill?
