Business * The 2024 Volkswagen Golf range of compact hatchbacks is made up of the GTI and R models. Both are excellent and exceptional. Pricing starts at $3src,765.

If we had a dollar for every time we heard the word “fun” used in connection with the Golf GTI, we’d be able to buy a new one with cash. Check out our overwhelmingly positive consumer reviews and you’ll see that word cropping up time and time again. The more powerful Golf R is the choice for serious fun.

The GTI is the popular model, though. It’s relatively affordable while still packing a useful amount of power, as well as sporting a roomy cabin that feels almost luxurious. And it’s a hatchback, lending an air of European coolness plus a lot of practicality. Even the fuel economy is good.

 and this eighth generation debuted for the 2022 model year, the culmination of decades of expertise.

What’s new for 2024

The Golf 380 package is available with every version of the GTI with the manual transmission (the name comes from a VW factory code, not bump in horsepower). It includes a standard adaptive suspension, plus src9-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black. All versions of the 2024 Golf gain power-folding side mirrors as standard, along with a choice of new wheel designs.

The biggest story, though, is what will change next year. That is, no manual transmission will be offered for the GTI or the Golf R in 2025. So if you’re hankering after a Golf with a stick shift, this year is your final call.
