: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Competition is plentiful for the 2013 GTI, as the hot hatchback market is definitely making a comeback in the U.S. The GTI’s first competitor is the 2013 Ford Focus ST, which features a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that pumps out 252 horsepower, six-speaker sound system with iPod integration and a 6.2-second sprint to 60 mph. The Mazdaspeed3 is the next competitor in line, which features a 2.3-liter engine that pounds the concrete with 263 horsepower and 280 foot-pounds of torque, a six-speed manual transmission, 10-speaker stereo system and a 6.5-second run to 60 mph. The last competitor for the VW GTI is the 2013 Subaru WRX Hatchback, which has a 265-horsepower, 2.5-liter engine, a five-speed manual transmission, six-speaker sound system and a 5.9-second sprint to 60 mph.

With all of this competition and the GTI being significantly slower than all of them, it needs to step up in the quality and standard features realms to attract customers.
