Golf GTI  

The 2021 Volkswagen GTI was named best hatchback in Good Housekeeping's "Best Family Cars" competition. This is a testament to VW's ability to build fun vehicles that can easily handle everyday family tasks. Let's take a closer look at what the publication's evaluators loved about the new GTI.

Versatile Hot Hatch

Good Housekeeping's experts praised the new VW GTI for its overall utility. It offers a great blend of sportiness and practicality. Good cargo space enables this hatchback to accommodate all your family's extra stuff, including strollers and backpacks. Parents especially appreciate the GTI's four-door design, which makes child car-seat installation an easier task. The typical sports car isn't nearly as accommodating. Whether you're running errands or decide to venture out of town for the weekend, comfort will be a top priority. Furthermore, all of today's most sought-after safety technologies are offered.

With the help of experts from Car and Driver, Good Housekeeping was also able to evaluate the GTI's performance. Its team raved about the GTI's fun-to-drive nature. They found the car to be especially responsive and athletic. Under the hood rests a punchy 2.0-liter, TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine. VW rates it to develop an enjoyable 228 horsepower. You can choose between a terrific manual transmission and a quick-shifting DSG automatic transmission. An EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 32 mpg further highlights the GTI's practicality.
