We have driven several iterations of Volkswagen's new MQB modular platform - from the lowly Golf TSI S to the fancy-and-unbelievably-quick Audi S3. But now that we've had our porridge both too hot and too cold, it's time to dive into something that feels just right - the Golf GTI. The GTI has been around almost as long as the Golf itself has, and this hot hatch has helped define a small, enthusiast-backed segment that has more competitors than ever before. Thankfully, this car's better than it's ever been.
The Ford Mustang, perhaps more than any other semi-new revival of a very old car (see Mini Cooper, Fiat 500, Dodge Challenger, etc.), manages the difficult task of keeping some sense of the classic car alive while simultaneously making it fit in with modern sensibilities.
What a strange being we have before us, the 2015 Chevrolet SS. In a time of all-wheel drive performance cars and the nascent electrification of everything (including said performance cars), we find ourselves completely smitten with something basic, something almost heretical in the Information Age. It's a two-and-a-half-ton, rear-wheel-drive, Corvette-engined, manual-transmission middle finger to everyone that doesn't identify as a Luddite.
