2006 Volkswagen GTI
2006 Volkswagen GTIEnlarge Photo
An all-new version of Volkswagen's compact Golf hatchback and its sporty GTI derivative will debut in the second quarter of 2006, likely as a 2007 model, with many of the changes otherwise found on the new Jetta with which they share platforms and components. The current models remain available for a shortened run, with the base GL two-door and four-door GL TDI trim levels being deleted for 2006. Available in two- and four-door versions, the Golf comes with a standard 115-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's mated to either a five-speed manual as standard or a four-speed automatic transmission. The GLS TDI sedan wrings extraordinary fuel economy out of its 100-horsepower, 1.9-liter turbodiesel engine, while a peppy 180-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder version powers the GTI. A sporty suspension delivers true European-style handling on a budget, with anti-lock brakes and front-side airbags standard. Options include VW's Electronic Stability Program, heated seats and windshield washers, leather seats, and rain-sensing wipers. For 2006, VW's Electronic Stability Program becomes standard on the GTI, along with 17-inch alloy wheels and tires, and heated seats and windshield washers.
