1996 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought my GTI VR6 in June of 1996 and it has been great. The performance, handling and acceleration are exceptional. Throaty engine roar sounds like a race car. 91,000 miles and still going strong. Cargo capacity is excellent, especially w/ seats down. Contoured Seats add to the driving experience, expecially when cornering but can be tough on long hauls. Mileage could be stronger but that is the tradeoff for the V6 power. A fast, fun versatile hatchback I recommend in a heartbeat.

Favorite Features

Performance and handling. This car is a lot of fun to drive. Trip computer -- hugely useful and fun.

Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are designed for 12 ounce cans and are poorly placed. Glove compartment please. Side mouldings need clamps or rivets. The glue is pathetic.
