If you're shopping for a compact car, there are a few things you can always expect to find, like a low price and good gas mileage. But what about refinement?

Unfortunately, most small cars aren't on the leading edge of technology, smoothness and sophistication, and buyers generally don't mind. They're looking for something affordable and efficient.

Another big difference is under the hood. Where most small cars would have a regular four-cylinder engine that may or may not sound like a lawnmower, the GTI adds a turbocharger and intercooler to create a powerplant that's as powerful and smooth as anything in its class.

Step on the gas pedal, and the GTI responds with a torrent of torque that can easily spin the f...
