2012 volkswagen gti Reviews and News

2012 Volkswagen GTI 3 Door Manual Front Right Side View 1
It's easy to see why the Volkswagen GTI was our first two-time AOY winner (in 2007 and 2010). Everything about this car is almost perfect. The 2.0-liter turbo-four feels much stronger than its 200 hp/207 lb-ft ratings suggest. There's lots of room for passengers and cargo in a compact footprint. Interior materials are as nice as you'd find in a non-luxury car. And the chassis is tuned to be rewarding on a spirited drive without being punishing on a commute. All of that for under $25,000 makes the GTI very special.
2013 Ford Focus ST Vs 2012 Volkswagen GTI Front View
While competitors have come and gone, the Volkswagen GTI has been the model of cheap and practical performance for more than three decades. The current GTI is the sixth iteration of a progressively more perfect icon and the very definition of the hot-hatch niche. As recognition of its excellence, we have named it an All-Star five times and Automobile of the Year in 2007 and 2010.
2012 Volkswagen GTI Front Three Quarter
The last time we heard anything about the next-generation Volkswagen GTI, we thought it would pack a 220-horsepower punch and possibly retain its electronic differential programming. Now, we hear that Volkswagen will probably give it 260 horsepower and a trick front differential.
2012 Volkswagen GTI
Now that the Toyobaru twins have arrived on our shores, it's a good time to be an enthusiast. The Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ add to the multitude of enthusiast-friendly cars that can be had for under $30,000, including the Ford Mustang V-6, Hyundai Genesis coupe, Mazda MX-5 Miata, and the VW GTI. So just because there isn't enough money in the piggy bank to get a Mercedes AMG or BMW M car, these cheap thrills prove that all hope is not lost for a racy set of wheels. The hard part is deciding which one you would pick.
