The rubber-burning world of the sport compact sedan and hatch has come a long way over the last few years. People want speed, handling and tune-ability. They also wantEuropean design and bang for their buck. At Volkswagen, we’ve been giving our autos more punch and power in the United States since 1983, when we introduced the concept of a sport compact with the original Mk I GTI. Still a collector’s favorite, it is the inspiration for the Mk V GTI and its iconic twin, the GLI. Both * feature an efficient, Autobahn-proven, 2.0L turbocharged direct injection engine,German-tuned sport suspension and meticulously speedy Volkswagen DNA. Think of it as a competitive sibling rivalry, and you’re the winner.

The pounding heart of the 2009 GTI and GLI is a 2.0 liter 200hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with FSI direct fuel injection and 207 lbs-ft. of torque. TheFSI system pressurizes fuel and releases it precisely into the combustion chamber for more power and fuel efficiency* Putting all that German power to the pavement . is the responsibility of the 6-speed manual transmission or the 6-speed DSG® with Tiptronic.® Inspired by Formula One™ racing, the DSG transmission uses paddle shifters on the steering wheel to bounce from gear to gear, and lets youshift in one-tenth of a second. Wrap all that speedy goodness in uni-body construction with laser welding, and the thrill ride is set to begin. The GTI and GLI also boast a high performance fully independent sport suspension, utilizing McPherson struts with lower wishbones up front, and an electro-mechanical steering system. So whether you go with standard all-season performance tires , or optionalsummer performance tires† you’re set to launch.
