Volkswagen calls the upcoming 2022 Golf GTI the most digital GTI of all time, but don’t worry, the German brand is referring to the car’s interior. The techno-revolution will spare the sporty handling that has made it a hot hatch favorite since it was introduced in 1975. The eighth generation, or Mk VIII, Golf GTI will sport a digital instrument cluster, a larger infotainment screen, and more connectivity. More important for enthusiasts, though, it will have more power and greater agility, and be quicker around a racetrack.
The 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI will arrive in the second half of 2021 only as a four-door model. The two-door won’t return, and neither will the base Golf TSI. A Golf R will hit the market at about the same time also as a 2022 model. We had previously speculated that both would be 2021s.
