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


This is my second Volkswagen and I didn't think VW was going to be able to make a better car than my 2001 Jetta, but I was so wrong. The new GTI is amazing! It handles like it's on rails, it is super quick with almost no turbo lag, and has the best interior ever. The seats are comfy and secure you like you were straped into them with a 4 point harnesses. The xenon lights, that come standard, brighten the road extremely well. The brakes and suspension are amazing. It stops on a dime and you never get the feeling that you aren't going to stop in time. The suspension rides so comfortably but handles so well in turns. Honda you better watch out!

Best Features

The 2.0 turbo engine is amazing. It has almost no lag from the turbo and in 6th gear it feels like you are in 4th. I love the xenon headlight with washers that come standard on all GTIs.

Worst Features

The stereo system needs to be amplified. The 10 speakers are nice but just need to have some more power. When turned up too much the stereo clipps.
