Expert Quotes:

2011 Volkswagen GTI: 21/31 mpg (manual)
EPA

2011 Volkswagen GTI: 24/33 mpg (dual-clutch)
EPA




With its high-performance powertrain, the Volkswagen GTI could probably get away with lowest-common-denominator fuel economy. But it doesn't. In fact, it gets better gas mileage than the base engine in the mass-market Golf--a five-cylinder.

The EPA says for the 2011 model year, the manual-transmission GTI earns a rating of 21/31 mpg. Opting for VW's marvelous dual-clutch transmission boosts gas mileage to 24/33 mpg.

There's no plan to fit the GTI model with Volkswagen's well-regarded diesels--in fact, a more powerful gas engine is coming in the Golf R for the 2012 model year.

Conclusion

The 2011 VW GTI earns higher fuel-economy ratings than the base Golf--and it just gets better with the dual-clutch transmission.

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.
