You never really outgrow a car like the Volkswagen Golf GTI. An incredibly versatile machine, the GTI has all the space and comfort of any other VW Golf, but thanks to its well-executed performance enhancements, it’s also terrific fun to drive.

Car and Driver –
As the car that invented the hot-hatch segment, the GTI continues to wave its plaid-cloth flag proudly. It comes in three- and five-door hatchback versions; the base engine is a 210-hp 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo four. A six-speed manual is standard, while VW’s six-speed DSG automatic is optional.
