2013 Volkswagen GTI Review

(5 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Volkswagen GTI is a fun car, but it doesn't quite match up to the competition. Regardless, the turbocharged engine allows for good performance and decent fuel economy. The design may be a bit lackluster on the outside, but the interior takes some chances. The lack of options and features may be discouraging to some buyers, especially considering the price point. It isn't a horrible hatchback, but the competitors often offer better value.
