The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 is Now Available in US and Canada

The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 Launch Video  

The MK8 GTI sticks to the tried-and-true combination of front-wheel drive and a 2.0T 4-cylinder engine, but with a new Garrett turbocharger. The Mk8 is built on the same MQB platform as the Mk7; therefore, there are no substantial differences in size or fundamental components. Instead, most aspects of the suspension and powertrains have been fine-tuned. The all-new scanning equipment creates a 3D image — in this case, of the GTI Mk8’s engine bay. This means that no trial-and-error fitting is required, unlike in the past. Hall Volkswagen in Brookfield, WI, is bringing to you the official video of The Volkswagen Golf Mk8.

What’s the difference between a hatchback and a compact crossover?

Hatchback vs Subcompact SUV: What’s the difference and which should I get?

A couple years back, an article by Popular Mechanics stated that “cars, in case you haven’t heard, are dead. More specifically, cars are crossovers now.” And while that statement is hyperbolic, as they are still many cars on the market today, it does have a kernel of truth to it. As the article suggests, fewer hatchbacks are being produced, while an army of small, eerily similar subcompact crossovers are taking their place.

So, is a subcompact crossover essentially just a hatchback or is it just a similar vehicle that taps into the same part of the market? Let’s take a look at some of the differences between the two.
