THE original hot hatch.
By cgoldrick on


2010 Volkswagen GTI PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Coming from a 94 325i, I was looking for something that was as fun to drive, but would also be kind to my wallet. This fine machine fits the bill perfectly, putting a silly grin on your face every time you press the accelerator, unleashing that sonorous tone from the two chrome-tipped exhaust pipes. If you are sensible with the throttle, the car is even capable of 34 mpg on the highway, which is amazing, considering what this is capable of. Handling is fairly neutral until you really push it, at which point you are reminded it's FWD. The interior makes you feel as if you are in a vehicle costing thousands more, perhaps tens of thousands. The quality of the materials is really that good

Best Features

Dynaudio sound system with gratuitous amounts of bass, iPod connectivity, swiveling Xenon headlights, set it and forget it sunroof, one touch up and down windows, 18'' Hufeisen wheels, touchscreen radio, multi-function display between tach/speedo, red stitching, beefy steering wheel, slick shifter

Worst Features

could use a bit more steering/pedal feel, but then previous car was an E36 so I was kind of spoiled, touchscreen radio has a lot of delay if you have thousands of songs in your iPod, other than that, nothing!
