Overview Information

The Golf GTI is the icon of sporty hatchbacks, and dates back to 1983. VW finally brought the new GTI to the USA, several years after the European launch. A new 2.0L I-4 turbo puts out 200-bhp and 207 lb.-ft., which makes it the most powerful GTI ever. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or the automatic DSG(TM) gearbox. This is the first GTI with a multi-link independent rear suspension, so handling should be much improved over its predecessors. An aggressive new front fascia with a honeycomb grille shows that the GTI is all business, and distinguishes it from lesser Golfs. Available 18-inch alloy wheels show off the racy red brake calipers. Xenon HID lamps are standard. Interior upgrades include brushed metal trim, sport seats, and a 10-speaker CD audio system.

What Changed:

A four-door version of the GTI compact joins the lineup for 2007. The 4-door shares its 200 hp four-cylinder engine, FWD and choice of six-speed transmissions with the 2-door model. The models are virtually identical in every conceivable option and dimension save for the extra 2 doors.
