For 2014, the Volkswagen GTI enters its final year of production in the current sixth-generation form, and just two trims are offered: Wolfsburg Edition and Driver's Edition. Each comes only as a 4-door.
Athletic, responsive driving feel; straightforward, practical, and spacious interior layout; excellent DSG transmission; great steering and handling; impressive fuel economy; affordable performance
The Volkswagen GTI offers strong performance, yet it has essentially the same space-efficient interior layout of the Golf hatchback--and that's a major asset for those who need to use the GTI as a daily driver. It also offers impressive fuel economy--up to 33 mpg highway. Pricing and value are also major selling points for the GTI, compared to most other small, sporty hatchbacks. With a bottom-line base price of $25,000, the GTI doesn't cost all that much more than economy-minded small hatchbacks, yet it offers sportier and more athletic performance, a more exclusive look and a good list of standard features.
