Honda Civic Si vs Volkswagen Golf GTI vs Hyundai Elantra N: Sport Compact Shootout

Fun, affordable, practical. It’s the car version of the Iron Triangle, but with sport compact cars, you don’t have to pick two qualities. Here, you’ve got all three.

The Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen Golf GTI are hardly unknowns. They’ve been on our roads, and in our hearts, for decades, melding compact car usefulness with added turns of speed and poise. Both saw new generations touch down in 2022, so naturally we’d have to get them together.

Then Hyundai crashed the party. The Elantra N is an altogether wilder proposition, the most hardcore small sedan we’ve seen. It doesn’t try to hide it, either.

2022 Volkswagen GTI and Golf R First Drive Review

Cars should be fun.

I tell everyone who will listen that I don’t really belong here—I’m a motorcycle journalist, see? I’m not sure how I wound up in this stew of brands and cars and new perspectives, yet here I am. It has something to do with the Canadian newspaper industry, I think.

And then, there I was (as all good stories begin), on the dreaded North Carolina Dragon (Highway 209), one of the gnarliest roads in America, chasing another journalist into a bumpy, downhill, blind, decreasing radius corner at a speed that would give my high school driving instructor a brain embolism, thinking “hey! I like cars.”

The cars? The much-anticipated Mk8 Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R, cars closer to a motorcycle with doors and a roof to anything I’ve driven, marvels of technology that with few exceptions have all the features (and then some) a die-hard GTI fan could want. Let me tell you more.
