2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


On a closed track I have run my 2006 GTI 2.0 against the following. 2003 Subaru WRX. I beat it. 2006 Dodge Charger Hemi, short track, only about 1/8 mile, I beat it. 2006 Pontiac GTO short track, I beat it. 2006 Pontiac G6, long track, I beat it. I know the GTO and Charger should have beaten me but it comes down to the driver as well. I have driven all of the above cars and mine is the easiest to drive as well. Only thing I don't like about my GTI is that the shifter feels a little sluggish. It has no problem shifting, but it doesn't have the crispness that the short shifter in my Acura had. Overall, this is an outstanding car. I haven't been beat yet!

Best Features

The low end torque, as soon as you hit 1,800 rpms it puts you back in the seat.

Worst Features

Improve the crispness of the shifter, I think it is the way it is to be smoother shifting for people who aren't as confident shifting. It's just a little to soft for my liking.
