VW’s new entry level model for 2007, the Rabbit (which replaces the Golf) is priced just under $15,000 to start and comes in two body styles, a two-door hatchback or four door hatchback. Both versions come standard with a new 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine producing 150 horsepower. Transmission choices include a standard five-speed manual or, optionally, a six-speed automatic. Unlike the previous generation Golf, a diesel engine is not on the options list for 2007. All Rabbits are front-wheel drive and there is just one basic trim level, regardless of body style. Air conditioning and an eight-speaker stereo with CD player and MP3 capability are standard, but stability control is optional. Traction control, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and front-side and full-length curtain/head airbags are also included in the ’07 Rabbit’s base price.
