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


This new GTI is everything the hot hatchback should be. It's quick off the line, has plenty of room and usability, is incredibly fun to drive, and gets pretty good gas mileage. I traded in my '02 Jetta for this car, and went from a true manual to the new DSG transmissoin, but couldn't be happier. The new transmission is what got me interested in this car, and I have to say it has all the benefits of both manual and auto trannies, and no drawbacks. The new styling is splendid, and the plaid interior makes you get in and say "I love this car"
