2009 Volkswagen GTI Review
Since 1976, when Volkswagen first introduced the Golf GTI, the German import has been a practical hatchback that’s also fun to drive. Now in its fifth generation, this aerodynamic five-passenger compact sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and can reach a fuel economy of 29 mpg on the highway. Along with its reliable performance, the GTI’s interior offers accessories like an in-dash, six-CD changer; ten speakers and SIRIUS satellite radio.
