2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
If you're looking for a "hot hatch", look no further. This is it! I've test driven just about everything it its class: The new Civic Si, the Mini Cooper S, the Acura RSX Type-S, you name it. Nothing impressed me like the new GTI. It's real solid and the steering feels very connected. In my opinion, DSG will revolutionize automatic and manual transmissions. My only bad experience was the rattling from the passenger side just a few minutes after taking delivery! Thankfully, my dealership was able to pinpoint and fix it within 1 hour.
DSG transmission, blue/red interior lighting, rear passenger room, HID headlights, leather interior, XM radio, and the final assembly point: Germany.
