2007 Volkswagen GTI 3-dr / 5-dr

After years of diluted GTIs, VW has returned to the purity of the seminal first-generation model that first appeared in Europe in 1976. The GTI is powered by the same smooth and torque-rich 2.0-litre, direct-injection turbo as the Audi A3, and shares the same architecture for agile handling without a beat-you-up ride. The superb DSG transmission with paddle shifters is optional and now comes with Launch Control, which allows optimum wheelspin for drag-racing starts.
