Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review

Volkswagen now sees its future in the pure-electric ID 3, meaning that although the new Golf will be the brand’s sales powerhouse for several years to come, as a concept it exists on borrowed time (not to sound overly dramatic). Still, we’d expect this one to once again compete for class honours against not only its usual rivals from Audi, Ford and Renault but now also BMW, whose new front-wheel-drive 1-Series has impressed.

The VW Up GTI may be a small city car, but it’s big fun. Like the regular Up , it’s surprisingly spacious inside for a car that’s not much bigger than an American-style fridge, but the GTI ’s more powerful engine and sporty suspension give it the ability to hurtle down a twisty road far more quickly than

Volkswagen has relaunched the Up GTI hot city car in the UK, eight months after its production allocation was fulfilled and it was withdrawn to coincide with the transition to WLTP emissions testing.

The Suzuki Swift Sport rival’s return to the market comes as Volkswagen gears up to begin deliveries of the revised e-Up, which, unlike its new Seat Mii Electric and Skoda Citigo-e iV siblings, will be sold alongside petrol variants.

Given the Up GTI's relatively short time off sale, it returns largely visually unchanged, save for the addition of the redesigned Volkswagen logo and a new set of 17in alloy wheels with low-profile tyres. As before, the seats are trimmed in Jacara checked fabric, which first featured on the original Golf GTI, with a flat-bottomed steering wheel and GTI-badged gearstick further differentiating it from the rest of the Up range.

  Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review Volkswagen says the new Mk8 Golf is the most sophisticated Golf there’s ever been, and given it features an almost entirely digital cockpit, uses never-before-seen hybrid engines and boasts a raft of driver-assistance system, who are we to disagree? But it’s also the end of an era. Volkswagen now sees its future in the pure-electric ID3, meaning that although the new Golf will be the brand’s sales powerhouse for several years to come, as a concept it exists on borrowed time (not to sound overly dramatic). Still, we’d expect this one to once again compete for class honours against not only its usual rivals from Audi, Ford and Renault but now also BMW, whose new front-wheel-drive 1-Series has impressed. When the Mk8 Golf arrives in Spring 2020, will it still be the hatchback to have? We drove a pre-production model in Portugal to learn more.

The Volkswagen Up GTI looks like it has all the ingredients to be a brilliant pocket rocket, and happens to be one of the cheapest ones you can buy. What Car? is the UK 's biggest car-buying brand and has been helping Britain's car buyers make purchasing decisions for more than 40 years.

Power output from the transversely mounted turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine remains 113bhp - nearly double that of the standard Up - and drive is still sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. The car achieves 53.3mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and remains capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 8.8sec and on to 122mph.

The most significant change for prospective Up GTI buyers is a price increase from £13,750 to £15,895 before options, which represents an £3445 premium over the standard Up. Prices rise to £16,295 for the five-door variant.

Joining the Up GTI in showrooms will be a new Up R-Line, available from £14,280. This brings styling features inspired by Volkswagen's top-rung performance models, 16in black alloy wheels, black trim elements, lowered suspension and heated front seats.
