Countdown to Golf update in November: The fifth Golf – pure dynamism and the comeback of the GTI

Volkswagen Golf - fifth Generation
  • Golf MkV in 2003 demonstrates the muscle of the range more than ever before
  • The 200 PS power of Golf GTI MkV is celebrated today as a sporting icon

The Golf's debut in 2003 left many a competitor from the higher mid-class standing with its comfort, dynamism and quality. Just one year later, a 200-PS Golf with black radiator grille and sports seats in the legendary tartan "Interlagos" fabric heralded the comeback of the GTI. Demand for the Golf, demand for the GTI has never let up since then. To date, the Golf GTI is the most successful sports car in the compact segment. The Golf itself is unassailable as the best-selling European car ever. Now just before the launch of this bestseller update in November, it's time to take a look back. At the Golf MkV and 2003.
