1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback


This is my third VW and second VR6.
The 98 GTI with the VR6 is so much fun
to drive. And the sound of the V6
makes you drive without the radio and
yearn for the light to turn green.
There always seems to be a few minor
rattles inside of all the VW's I have
owned, but outside of that, the car is
a blast to drive. The brakes on the
VR6 will stop you quickly. The 11.3"
rotors upfront hint at what this car is
built to do... shock and amaze BMW's,
Mustangs etc. And to round out the
package, you get the utility of a
hatchback. I consider this a true
SPORT utility vehicle.

Best Features

TORQUE, Stock Exhaust sound, brakes. Radio is located high in the dash and the climate controls are simple to use.

Worst Features

Shifter could be less "notchy" with shorter throws.
