Used 1990 Volkswagen GTI Review




what's new

Volkswagen's pocket rocket drops the Golf designation and becomes simply the GTI. The hatchback comes in two flavors -- base and 16V. Base GTIs come with a 105-horsepower four (100 hp in California), rear drum brakes and velour-upholstered sport seats. The GTI 16V gets a 134-hp DOHC four-cylinder, four-wheel disc brakes and genuine Recaro seats.
