Few compact hatchbacks have attained status and dominance that is anywhere near what the Golf series achieved over the past half-century, and all it takes is one quick look at its history to understand why.

Golfs are a bastion of "affordable and fun" in this weight class and for many car reviewers (and users,) the undisputed best in this category.

The base Golf, which was in production from 1974 until it was sunsetted in North America in 2021, was introduced to replace the legendary Volkswagen Beetle, and it did an excellent job of filling those big shoes, rising to become one of the world's top three best-selling models, with its variants picking several awards along the way.

In today’s fast-paced world, it is no surprise that the entry-level Golf was discontinued in favor of its more performance-oriented variants like the GTI.

The original GTI, now 47 years old, pioneered the hot-hatch market subsegment, spawning generations of models that became so legendary that other brands began borrowing its naming system, as with the Peugeot 205 GTI and Suzuki Swift GTI.

The GTI takes everything great about the Golf brand—it's inviting affordability, an abundance of common sense features, a constant drive for modifications and improvement, and a consistently fun driving profile—and focuses on the fun part, upping the ante on performance.

The new 2023 Golf GTI, the 2nd entry into the redesigned eight-generation Golf released for 2022, stays true to its legacy, pairing the same fun-to-drive nature with the new contemporary interior features and updated aesthetics.

Under the hood, the new GTI is powered by a 241-horsepower 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that brings plenty of oomph for its small profile, pairing it with front-wheel drive and the choice of either a trusty seven-speed automatic transmission or an excellent six-speed manual option for more adventurous drivers.

The expected exciting driving profile on the 2023 Volkswagen Golf GTI, combined with its roomy, practical cabin and rich history and status, ensures that the new car stays atop the list of many buyers seeking an affordable performance C-segment small car for yet another year.
