  • Called the Mk8, the eighth-generation of the hot hatch will be a 2022 model on our shores.
  • The current Mk7 GTI will carry over for the 2021 model year in the U.S. for the time being.

We first saw the newest VW Golf GTI back in March, but---as is often the case---U.S. hot-hatch enthusiasts are going to have to wait a bit longer for it to come to on our shores. VW says that the new Mk8 model will arrive here in late 2021 as a 2022 model, while European buyers get a crack at the new model this year.

More on the Mk8

The slow arrival of the Mk8 leaves a bit of room for the current Mk7 GTI to, well, continue existing. So VW says that the old GTI will stick around for the 2021 model year as a carryover. This version has been available in the U.S. since the 2015 model year, and it's aging gracefully: we named it and its sibling, the Jetta GLI sedan, to our 2020 10Best list, as we did for many years before that.
