The all-new 2022 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf GTI receives its 16th consecutive win by Car and Driver, some of the best cars in the world. The hatchback has always been known for its quickness and versatility. The all-new 2022 Mk8 Golf GTI has made it onto the prestigious list of “10Best” cars for 2022 by Car and Driver. Volkswagen has created a whole new generation for the iconic Golf line. The German automaker is thrilled to win the award for 16 years in a row and considers it an honor and recognition that the Golf continues to be one of the most popular vehicles in the world. 

“The Volkswagen GTI’s greatest strength has always been its combination of the special and the everyday. Well before the arrival of the new eighth-generation car, the GTI has been one of our most-awarded 10Best—this marks its 19th appearance since 1983,” said the editors of Car and Driver. “It has never been hard to see its appeal, that of a bonafide German performance car with both an affordable price tag, plus the practicality of five seats, good fuel economy, and more cabin volume than some compact crossovers.”

“We are thrilled to see the Golf GTI on the 10Best list for the 16th straight year,” said Scott Keogh, President, and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “The GTI has been the definition of fun-to-drive for nearly 40 years and the eighth-generation model is no different. It is the heart and soul of our brand and a real-world reminder that the Volkswagen enthusiast spirit is alive and well.”

The Golf-family design formula has been evolving since the first Golf debuted back in March 1974 and today the 2022 Mk8 Golf GTI and Golf R are continuing the evolution of the hottest hatchback ever. The 2022 Golf and GTI are slightly longer and sportier while still carrying the style hallmarks of their predecessors like the distinctive C-pillar. The Mark 8 (Mk8) vehicles have a fresh front face courtesy of a more sharply raked hood, new signature LED headlights, and an available light bar in the grille on either side of the updated Volkswagen logo. The 2022 GTI comes with distinctive new X-shaped fog lights, red grille line, red brake calipers, new wheel designs, dual exhaust tips, and the classic honeycomb lower grille.

The inside of the 2022 Mk8 Golf GTI and Golf R features a brand new electronic architecture, enabling a digitally networked world of displays and controls. The 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro comes standard, allowing drivers to customize their display to the information needed. Including car status, driving data, phone information, album art, driver assistance features, and more. When equipped with the Discover Pro infotainment system with navigation are able to display a full-screen map in the digital cluster and simultaneously on the 10-inch center display. The cockpit digitization includes touch panels that are able to control the lighting, defrost, audio functions, as well as sunroof.
