When I saw the new 2010 GTI online, I fell in love. For the first time, the outside of the GTI is as beautiful as the interior and driving experience. I traded in my 2005 GTI and was amazed at the changes. The manual transmission is smoother, the car feels "tighter," and the electronic upgrades like the I-pod charger and touch-screen radio blew me away. I also can feel the extra 20 HP on this model, and the acceleration and pull is as fun as ever.
Outside design, new front grill, 200 HP, 0-60 time (6.8 sec), I-Pod charger, touch-screen radio, plad interior, red baseball stitching, various digital statistics on dash
Seems to have more blind spots than my MK IV. A little more pricey than my old GTI, but I'm getting a lot more car for my money. More economical than comparable cars.
