Expert opinion

Having perhaps lost its way slightly with the Mk6 Golf GTI, VW rediscovered its form with the Mk7. With a new MQB platform and EA888 engine, the GTI was revitalised in 2013. Initially available as a 220hp standard car or a 230hp Performance Pack (bringing bigger brakes and the VAQ limited-slip diff as well as the extra power), the Mk7 was back to being everything a great Golf GTI should be: fast, stylish, capable, entertaining and desirable. There simply wasnโ€™t a chink in its armour. Manual or DSG, three doors or five, you couldn't buy a bad Golf GTI.

The most significant update came in 2017 with the โ€˜Mk7.5โ€™, boosting power for the standard car and the Performance to 230hp and 245hp respectively. The DSG was upgraded to seven gears, too, a worthwhile update given the old six-speed had begun to feel just a tad old against newer opposition. Though original Mk7s are brilliant (and available from just ยฃ12k) the updated interior and extra torque of the 7.5 does make it especially desirable. Donโ€™t forget the Clubsport S, too: it jettisons a chunk of the GTI usability, but substitutes in its place 310hp and one of the finest front-drive experiences you can buy anywhere. Really. Itโ€™s ยฃ35k or so very well spent.
