With other hot hatches adding all kinds of infotainment gear, the $23,690 2011 Volkswagen GTI has upped its game to stay competitive with the tech-friendly competition.
Every 2011 GTI has standard 17-inch wheels and performance tires; upgraded brakes; a sport suspension; a monochromatic paint scheme; metal-trimmed pedals; air conditioning; cruise control; and a rear defroster. The GTI also gets a six-CD changer and Sirius satellite radio included in its base price, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for media players. This model year, new 18-inch alloy wheels are fitted.
The options list is short. The GTI can be shod with a touchscreen navigation system teamed with a 30GB hard drive, an SD card slot and DVD playback. A premium 300-watt audio system is an option; it's included in a Premium package that bundles the nav system, xenon headlamps and adaptive headlights, as well as a multifunction steering wheel with leather trim.
It's a relative bargain in base form, but add navigation and a DSG to the GTI and you're pushing $30,000.
