2007 Volkswagen GTI

The first GTI — a hot rodded version of the Rabbit econobox — appeared back in 1983, at a time when economy cars that were also fun to drive cars were virtually nonexistent. The GTI is a new model for ’07 and many generations removed from its ancestor, but the animating spirit is the same. Like the ’07 Rabbit it is based upon, the new GTI can be ordered in both two and four-door hatchback body styles but comes standard with a 2.0 liter, 200-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine working through either a standard six-speed manual transmission or Direct Shift six-speed gearbox, a type of manual where the driver controls gear changes but the clutchwork is handled automatically. Curiously, at 23/32 mpg with the manual transmission, the high-performance GTI gets better fuel economy than the price-minded Rabbit. All GTIs come equipped with 17-inch wheels and performance tires, high-capacity brakes, sport suspension, metal-trimmed pedals, and monochromatic exterior paint schemes — in addition to air conditioning, cruise control and electric rear defroster. The standard safety equipment package includes anti-whiplash head restraints, a tire pressure monitoring system, front-side and curtain airbags, as well as electronic stability control.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
