2007 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


You don't see a bunch of these on the road, probably because the price is above others in this class. But for those who enjoy driving and want the utility of a hatchback and a small car that zips in and out of tight spaces, this car fills the bill and then some. My wife says it has "scootability". Ignore stats on power and weight. This 200 HP turbo MOVES this car and you feel it. We got package #2 with leather in tornado red. Yesterday we got a Pioneer AVIC- Z2 with nav and music hard drive installed and component speakers. For under $30,000 we've put together a car my wife and I hate to get out of.

Best Features

Leather seating is very comfortable. For every day driveability the name of the game is torque, and this car has it. Great turning radius. All of a sudden, at 13,000 miles, gas mileage is above 30 on highway.

Worst Features

The stock head unit on this car is awful. Don't even bother with nav. Get the car you want and go aftermarket for mav, stereo.
