The new GTI comes now in a four door model. The 2006 and 2007 modles have the new 2.0L turbocharged engine with 200 HP insted of the old 2006-2002 modles which had the 1.8L turbocharged engines with about 170HP. The turbocharger adds a lot of gas milage and gives it a lot of all around power. The exterior looks awesome, it looks very fast, don't you think, even the new 4 door version. The new Honda Civic Si is cool, but it does not have the turbocharger and the GTI gives you a lot more space for luggage. The rims avalible on the GTI are also way better than the Honda. That's what I think anyhow. I am not saying that the Honda is a is bad or anything, in fact Hondas are great cars but the Volkswagen GTI is the way to go.
I love that it has an input so you can plug in your iPod. The paddles are also very cool, most cars don't have that where you can shift gears without taking your hand off the wheel. The plaid seat are in style and are very comfortable. The grill is also really cool with the red pin-stripe.
The only problem with the GTI is that Volkswagen should put in a better stero system because it lacks some wattage. They should put in like a 350- 650 watt stero system, but I am sure they will improve it because the Passat is avalible with a 600 watt stereo system, otherwise it's a great car.
