There is a particular type of vehicle that really stirs the passions of a select group of drivers - the hot hatchback. There is something unique about a small car that is packed with a powerful engine. For the past several decades, the unrivaled leader of the "hot hatch" has been the Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The Complete Package

There are cars that are fast, and there are cars that are fun. Sure, some cars are affordable and practical, too. The thing about the 2022 Golf GTI is that it will really do everything all at once. The Golf GTI is a small, affordable hatchback that offers extra space thanks to its hatchback design. The Golf GTI has always been known as a performance vehicle because of its powerful engine and nimble handling, and the same will hold true in 2022.

Finally, the 2022 GTI promises a next-level sense of fun because of its big power and small size make it easy to throw around curves. It would be almost impossible to find another vehicle that shares all of those qualities at an affordable price.

Timeless Style

If you look at the Golf GTI over the past several generations of production, it's clear that the vehicle has a timeless style. The Golf GTI doesn't change as much as it evolves, and 2022 will be no exception. Because of this timeless approach to the GTI's style, it has remained a favorite with hot hatchback fans. In fact, many drivers are on their third or fourth GTI because of the vehicle's incredible consistency.

That said, the 2022 model will bring several improvements. Fans will take note of fog lights that are now integrated into a lower grille and a more modernized design in the LED headlights.

Affordable German Performance

Finally, Volkswagen has had a tradition of bringing superior German engineering to the masses. The GTI offers just about anyone the chance to drive a German performance vehicle. This is why the GTI has been around for decades and will continue to grow its fan base. For someone looking to conquer the roads in a top-quality German performance vehicle, the GTI offers acceleration, handling and feel that is usually only available in much more expensive luxury German vehicles.

The 2022 Golf GTI will bring improved performance over previous model years. Its 2.0-liter turbo-four engine now reaches 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. That's an improvement of 13 horsepower and 15 pound-feet over the previous model.
