2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI New York Times Review

Here at Compass Volkswagen, we revere the New York Times as a highly credible publication, and we rely on this long-running newspaper for the latest news and happenings around NYC, the rest of the United States, and the whole world. In addition to the facts, we look to the New York Times for their opinions (we always love their Best Sellers book list), and we were thrilled when they recently gave the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI a shining review!

In the review, New York Times contributor and auto enthusiast Tom Voelk takes the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI for a spin and gives his overall opinion of the hot hatch. He says that it is the perfect combination of performance and practicality, and we couldn’t agree more!

The 2017 edition of the hot hatch is outfitted with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 210 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Tom Voelk commented that the engine allows the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI to perform as beautifully as many high-performing V8 cars while remaining very easy on the budget (starting MSRP is $25,595) and on fuel (24 mpg-city/34-mpg-highway).

Another aspect of the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI that Tom Voelk praised was the awesome amount of cabin space. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI can accommodate up to five passengers and is very comfortable for four full-sized adults. The cargo space ranges from 22.8 to 52.7 cubic feet—which can fit a LOT of toilet paper as Tom Voelk demonstrates in the video portion of his review.
