The Volkswagen Golf GTI doesn't need to be the fastest or best-driving hot hatch out there. What a successful GTI needs to be is all the car you could ever possibly want. And this video from XCar is yet more confirmation the Mk 7 is a successful GTI.

Yes, some of you would argue that a front-wheel drive Golf will never be as sharp to drive as something like a Focus ST or the impressive 2015 Subaru WRX. As a benchmark for the perfect everyday car though, it's hard to top VW here.

Let this be five minutes of a reminder that it'll probably be worth giving the 2015 GTI a drive when it hits dealerships in a few months before signing on the line in front of your Ford or Subaru salesperson.
