2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI named best hatchback in Good Housekeeping’s Best Family Cars

posted in: News, Volkswagen 0

2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI has earned Good Housekeeping’s “Best Hatchback” honor in its “Best New Family Cars” competition. Working with experts from Car and Driver, the Good Housekeeping team evaluated hundreds of new vehicles, test-driving the top contenders on well over 5,000 miles of sprawling highways, windy town streets and busy city blocks.

“We’re honored that Good Housekeeping has recognized the Golf GTI as the sports car you can use as a family vehicle,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Strategy for Volkswagen of America. “The Golf GTI has built generations of fans by offering a unique balance of sportiness and practicality. The new 2022 Golf GTI is expected to arrive in dealers later this year, featuring more technology and power than its predecessors, while preserving the affordable hot-hatch formula that launched the segment more than 40 years ago.”

The Good Housekeeping engineering team worked with Car and Driver’s automotive experts to screen dozens of models using a proprietary formula for determining the best picks, taking safety, road manners and technology into account. The team also measured each vehicle on its usability for everyday family tasks, such as child car-seat installation. In its award, Good Housekeeping called the 2021 Golf GTI “a fun-to-drive car that’s responsive and athletic, a nimble hatchback that has good cargo space for its size,” and noting that the new 2022 model is expected to deliver “even more power and sleekness than previous models on an already attractive build.”

The car that defined the term “hot hatch” embodies a classic formula:  refinement, style, power, and playful performance. In its last year of production for this generation, the Golf GTI returns with new technology and design cues that continue the tradition of affordable performance it has built since its U.S. debut in 1983. The 2021 Golf GTI is available in three trims—S, SE, and Autobahn. MSRP for the 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI with a standard six-speed manual transmission starts at $28,695. The seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission with Tiptronic® starts at $29,495. The destination charge for all Golf GTI models is an additional $995. More details, pricing and fuel economy for the 2022 Golf GTI will be announced ahead of its arrival in U.S. dealers.

She enthusiastically shares her experiences through her journalistic work, writing about international travel, cars, performing arts, and news in general. Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
