A variation of the Golf three-door hatch with firm suspension settings and superior equipment gets the designation of GTI. The 1.8T turbo four-pack serves as base engine for GTI GLS, bringing 180-hp as translated through the five-speed automatic with Tiptronic feature. GTI VR6 uses a twin-cam 2.8-liter, V6 scored to 201-hp with six-speed manual shifter.

The passenger compartment sets two buckets in front of a two-place jump seat with space behind in the hatch bay for gear.

Volkswagen maximizes equipment on GTI GLS. Items include a premium stereo system with eight speakers, windows with one-touch up and down power controls, central remote locking, heated remote mirrors, cruise control, a power glass sunroof, foglamps and alloy wheels.

Latest standards include leather wrapping the brake lever and shift knob plus steering wheel, with ESP optional with the 1.8T but standard on VR6. And the latest GTI color selection goes to Silverstone Gray.

2007 Volkswagen GTI Compact Hatchback Sedan

Imagine you're an engineer at Volkswagen.

You've been working on one of the world's greatest luxury cars, the VW Phaeton. You've contributed to the awesome, four-wheel-drive Touareg SUV. You've also helped create the most expensive, most powerful and fastest production car in the world, the Bugatti Veyron.

And then one day your boss walks in and says, "I need your help with the new VW Golf, our little compact car. Remember the Golf?"

Yawn. There were probably more engineers eager to design the lug nuts on the Bugatti than there were on the entire Golf project.

Thus Volkswagen birthed the new Golf -- known as the Rabbit and GTI here in America -- and gave us a car that teeters between brilliant and disappointing depending on your perspective.

On one side, this new car is technically superior to virtually everything else on the road. Its handling dynamics and high-speed stability are second to none, especially in its lowly price class. It has a remarkably stiff chassis, robust engine and unmistakably German feel.

The high-performance GTI that I tested is a blast to drive. No matter where you go -- around town, on the Interstate or on winding roads -- it likes to be driven hard, almost begging to be tossed around.

It's also available with an amazing, high-tech, dual-clutch automatic transmission that's like nothing you've ever driven. There aren't words to describe how cool this transmission feels.

When you drive a normal transmission, either automatic or manual, there's always a split second when the engine disengages from one gear and engages with another. Not only does this create a slight jerk when shifting gears under acceleration, but it also means there is a short period of time when your engine isn't pulling the car. That's inefficient and bad for performance.

With Volkswagen's fancy dual-clutch transmission, one clutch engages at the same time another one disengages, so there's always a clutch transferring torque from the engine during a shift. There's no pause, no jerky feeling. Just smooth, seamless, nonstop acceleration while it shifts automatically.

From that perspective, the new GTI shows off what Volkswagen's engineers learned on the Phaeton and Bugatti. It's a very modern, advanced automobile.

It's futuristic. It's also a letdown.

The previous generation Golf was socialism on wheels. Even though you might pay only $15,000 for your Golf, you got the same quality of fit and finish that people expect in a $70,000 Lexus. It was incredible, almost too good to be true.

With this latest version, though, fit and finish have taken a noticeable dip. You can tell the engineers were mailing it in on this economy car, just waiting for the next jet-p...
