Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: 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.

The Volkswagen GTI is the car for all people, for all occasions. It's a practical city car with a commodious interior and a relatively small footprint. It's beautifully assembled on the inside, yet is thousands cheaper than so-called premium compacts. And most of all, it's an absolute joy to drive.

What's New for 2015

The GTI is a totally new car for 2015, its seventh generation. It's on an all-new platform, with slightly more interior room than the old car but with better fuel economy. Prices are mostly unchanged from last year, ranging from roughly $25,000 to $35,000 in two or four-door versions.

Choosing Your Volkswagen GTI

Volkswagen GTI

This year, the GTI comes with a new 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, this time producing 210 horsepower. The $1,495 Performance Package adds 10 horsepower, along with bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. A six-speed manual is standard, but a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is optional.

In addition to the Performance Package, all trim levels are available with Lighting Package -- xenon headlights and LED running lights -- and a Driver assistance Package with front and rear parking sensors and a forward collision warning system.

Volkswagen GTI

The entry level S trim comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, heated front sport seats, Sirius satellite radio, iPod connectivity, LED fog lights and Volkswagen's Car-Net telematics system.

SE adds leather upholstery, backup camera, power sunroof, automatic wipers and headlights, keyless entry and a Fender premium audio system. Also available with the Performance Package are adaptive dampers.

The top-trim Autobahn, available only as a four-door, adds on automatic climate control system 12-way power driver's seat and satellite navigation.

CarsDirect Tip

The Performance Package transforms the car into a usefully sharper driving machine, so it's well-worth the price. Both of the other major packages are reasonably priced for what they offer, too. The SE includes a generous helping of equipment for around $30,000. Alternatively, you could spring for the Autobahn package and still end up with a car that's better equipped than a comparably priced upscale compact sedan, while being more fun to drive.
