21 City / 31 Highway
, Automotive Editor -

Originally intended as a limited-edition model, this sporty hatchback is now in its sixth generation and due for a major redesign for 2015. Yet its interior quality is still superior to many of its competitors in the same price range, while ride quality and comfort are excellent. The 2014 GTI still has lots to offer to enthusiasts who prefer to be actively involved in every aspect of driving.

What's New for 2014

Rather than adding new features for this model year, Volkswagen has scaled back on the GTI’s variations by offering only the four-door body style and limiting color choices to white, gray or black.

Choosing Your Volkswagen GTI

There are two trim levels for the 2014 GTI, both equipped with the same turbocharged 2-liter inline four-cylinder engine with a peak output of 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The only choice here is which transmission you’ll choose:

  • The standard six-speed manual transmission achieves fuel economy in the range of 25 mpg for combined driving.
  • The available six-speed automated manual functions either as an automatic transmission or as a manual through the use of steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. This transmission also includes a launch-control system that provides smooth acceleration. Estimated fuel economy is 27 mpg in combined driving.

You can also choose between two trim levels:

Wolfsburg Edition

The Wolfsburg Edition is the base trim but it still includes a number of decidedly non-base features like heated seats and a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel. The standard 18-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires combine with red-stitched interior trim and the GTI’s iconic plaid upholstery to set the mood for sporty performance.

Driver's Edition

In the upgraded Driver’s Edition, you’ll find all of the Wolfsburg Edition’s features plus a touchscreen audio interface and navigation system, a sunroof, and black leather sport seats. Bi-xenon headlights feature an adaptive front-lighting system that lights the way around corners.

CarsDirect Tip

Potential GTI buyers may be waiting for the redesigned model due out for 2015, so dealers may be motivated to negotiate a good price to move their 2014s off the lot.
