The inside story
Even in three-door guise, the GTI is a spacious and practical hatchback, while those who prefer extra versatility can have a five-door for an extra £585.

Whichever you choose, sporty interior touches include a flat-bottomed steering wheel, drilled aluminium pedals and heavily bolstered seats that are trimmed in tartan. What’s more, these details are combined with clear controls and high-quality materials, so the cabin is a great place to wile away the miles.

You won’t have to spend a fortune on extras, either. Electric windows, front and rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloys, dual-zone climate control, stability control and seven airbags are all fitted as standard.
