Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk.6

The newest version of the original hot hatch. Is it cool?

Mk1 Gti was the only cool golf, the rest have got increasingly lardy ( then again, so have I) Reckon it's time that Alfa took over VAG

Personally never liked the Mk1, I think the Mk2 was the better balance. 3-5 did get more and more lardy. Look less repulsive now than they originally did and this is an improvement on the 3-5 but still not cool. Much of the car is highly unimaginative in it's design.

*meant to click "uncool" but quite like being the first

Why, so they can whittle down a good cross sector model range to two mediocre offerings and seriously jeopardise another brands future???

It's unquestionably uncool.

It is a very well made, competent, versatile hot hatch but the Golf GTi has come to define all that is conservatism in both automotive style and design. It is the ultimate "safe" choice and as such is a huge seller. Ergo it cannot possibly be cool.

It was meant as a tongue in cheek reference to the standard "VAG to buy Alfa" thread but never mind

Personally, having driven both of the "mediocre" offerings, I consider them head and shoulders above anything with a VW badge.

Sorry, just fell asleep.

Probably the most boring that an exciting hot hatch can get, no? I'm sure they drive very nice and very... German and all that but it's too dull for words. Oh, and from what i've seen on the road they seem to exclusively be driven by tawts. Uncool.

I quite liked the MKV. I bought a Passat on the strength of it, which turned out to be just an OK car if the most unreliable one I have owned.

Even the MKV was uncool and so is this, crikey it's a VW how could it be cool unless it is a Beetle (which I don't like myself) or Camper (again I personally don't like but is super cool)?

Not cool if compared to its greatgreatgrandparents, the first generation GTI.


Ugly wheels too

Boring. I'm tired of the Golf now. Bought a new one a few years back, but now I just nod off whenever I look at one.
