2010 VW GTI Hatchback

2010 Volkswagen GTI Review

(4 Stars)  Simply the best in its class

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The GTI is back in 2010 with a strong performing car to the VW line up. The GTI is the same car that many people refer to as the Golf, but with a more sporty design and motor. This car offers a great deal of fuel economy in a very fun to drive package. With over 200 horsepower coming from a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, the GTI brings plenty of power to a small package as well.

This car is not a racecar by any means, but it does offer plenty of power and enough oomph to really make it a blast to drive. The GTI comes in a 2 door coupe and a 4 door sedan. Both models use the same engine and offer similar interior accommodations. The base GTI starts at $23, 690 so this is not does not offer as much value as the Jetta when it comes to its price point, but the GTI does offer a lot of great features in a small sporty hatchback form. The VW GTI brings a very cool new design in 2010 that will be sure to turn heads.
