Volkswagen GTI Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Americans never embraced the "hot hatch" concept with the same vigor as Europeans, but that didn't stop Volkswagen from giving us our first taste of performance-tuned hatchbacks with the Rabbit-based GTI in 1983. Back then, automotive journalists lauded the 90-horsepower GTI for its eagerness and refined road manners.

With 200 horsepower on tap, the current GTI's turbocharged 2-liter engine more than doubles the original car's output. But the traits that made the original GTI so appealing remain. With prices that start under $25,000, VW's sporty hatchback is a good value for any driving enthusiast.

Volkswagen GTI Generations

2010 - 2015 Volkswagen GTI

Major changes included: The sixth generation (Mk6) of the popular GTI is one of the most globally beloved, budget-friendly performance vehicles to ever be released. The GTI is the performance version of the popular Golf, and comes loaded with performance features including a sport-tuned suspension and a more powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The latest derivations of the GTI feature new interior and exterior styling features like a larger front grille and limited edition stitching. The GTI is available in both 2- and 4-door hatchback body styles.

Major changes included: The fifth generation Volkswagen GTI (Mk5) vehemently continues where the Mk4 Golf (4th generation) left off. Again, the tried-and-true combination of improved suspension and engine tuning provide a driving dynamic that's tough to replicate, especially in this price range. Updated 17-inch alloy wheels come standard, while aggressively-bolstered seats adorn the driver and passenger, offering much needed support during those spirited commutes.
