2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport: Power increased to 221kW (296hp)

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport has almost Golf R levels of power and improved looks, but is still FWD.

The 2L turbo I4 has been improved to 221kW (296hp) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft). The standard GTI has 180kW (241hp) and 370Nm (273 lb-ft).

The Clubsport is still FWD only, and is only available with a 7-speed DCT.

The suspension is 10mm (0.4-in) lower, and there’s standard 18-in wheels, a dual plane rear spoiler, larger rear diffuser, a new front bumper, wider sills, and oval exhaust tips.
