If you like a fast, reliable compact car with excellent construction, check out the 2001 Volkswagen GTI. It’s the top-of-the-line, high-speed version of its sibling, the standard Volkswagen Golf. Offered in only one body style – the two door Hatchback – the GTI boasts engines ranging from a 150 horsepower 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder to a 174 horsepower 2.8-liter V6, with your choice of automatic or manual transmission depending on the model. The GTI seats five passengers, registers EPA estimates in the 23 City/29 Highway range and comes nicely equipped with air, cruise control, keyless entry, power accessories, a remote trunk release, AM/FM/CD, airbags and ABS brakes.
