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


The combination of the versatility of the DSG transmission (spring for the extra grand) with an amazingly torquey engine, makes this one special car for the price. The four door version, in my opinion, improves its profile over the two door model, not to mention it adds utility. The GTI's fit and finish are of the highest quality. It's a better looking than the Audi A3 for about eight grand less. The only downside so far is that collision insurance (as with most VW's) costs quite a bit more than average.

Best Features

The DSG transmission and engine (power from down low), standard xenon lights, standard "cloth" seats, foward visibility (almost no hood visible), and safety features - airbags galore.

Worst Features

The interior storage space is skimpy. VW cup holders are always lacking. Give us a choice of satellite radio providers. The exclusive deal with Sirius is not what we all want.
