The Volkswagen Golf GTI and Hyundai Elantra N are the No. 1- and No. 2-ranked hot hatches on Edmunds, respectively. In this video, Lauren McCay from Edmunds heads out to the desert with the 2022 VW Golf GTI and 2022 Hyundai Elantra N to see which one of these hot hatchbacks comes out on top in our latest U-Drags race. Lauren reports on which hatch won the drag race and compares the Elantra N’s and Golf GTI’s 0-60 time, top speeds and horsepower. Can the original hot hatch Golf GTI stay one step ahead of the newer Elantra N? Lauren answers this and much more in our latest video in our new series we dubbed “U-Drags.” It’s the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs. 2022 Hyundai Elantra N.
What is a U-Drag race? A U-Drag race consists of both cars heading down the track like a standard drag race, then braking hard, flipping around and then heading back.
