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


I owned an Audi TT 225 Q and I loved the car. However, after having owned a new GTI 2.0T, just like the Audi A3, I don't know why anyone would put forth the money for the Audi. The Audi, by comparison is cramped and expensive. When I purchased the TT, I didn't spring for the DSG transmission, but after having it in the VW, I never want another car without it. It shifts much faster than any manual I have ever owned. I loved the TT, but the new GTI is much more fun to drive and has a much lighter feel due to the electromechanical steering. This is an A3 for much less. It is definetely worth investigating. I agree with another reviewer here on this site, the stereo is cheap and not very good.

Best Features

DSG, xenon headlights, interior lighting, wheels, and hatchback utility.

Worst Features

It needs a 4Motion option and a V6 option. Also, a royal blue would look fantastic on this particular car, I beleive.
