I’ve always heard that the Volkswagen Golf GTI is a hero of hatchbacks, the best you could buy, the benchmark, and just an all-around good car. And yet I’ve never driven one, until now! What do you want to know about the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI?


The GTI I have for the weekend is the SE model, which is enough to get the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system but not enough to get the navigation along with it. Otherwise it has the same 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 220 horsepower that the other GTI trims get, though it’s got the DSG and not the manual, sadly. It’s also in a faintly blue grey color.

But this thing is already surprisingly fun, and that’s even with my high expectations. I plan on driving the shit out of it before it goes back, so let me know what you’d like to know about it.

Will I still look like an adult driving it? My wife has her doubts.
