6-speed manual FWD
I have MS, so comfortable seats are a must. This is the only car that I've been in where I could do a non-stop trip from Michigan to Washington DC in. No fatigue, no stopping for a stretch. It's that good, and VW throws in standard heated seats for the GTI. And they do mean "heated" seats, not "warmed" seats, not "take-the-edge-off" seats. Turn them on full and your bum will be roasting with in a few minutes. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review
2011 2dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.5L I5

Seats actually fit your body and have proper bolstering, unlike most other seats in this price range which are more like shelves for oversized American behinds. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review

2011 4dr Hatch turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel

The torque means the engine never strains to move the car. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review

Effortless torque. The engine never feels like it is straining. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review
2011 2dr Hatch turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
This little 2.0L hauls. There's nothing better than being able to keep up with the traffic in the fast lane, pull out and instantly whoosh up to speed without having to shift from 6th. It's not the quietest engine at idle a little on the ticky side, but that's high-pressure fuel injection for you. Otherwise this is the most linear, and smoothest turbo-four on the market. More than makes up for the power deficit in it's class with sheer refinement. As for the manual transmission, let's not even go there. Clutch takeup is light, linear if a little vague. The shifter itself is smooth, with positive engagement and an effortless movement. This gearbox rewards fingertip lightness. Rev-matching is almost instinct, as the car is geared perfectly. The shifter position itself is exemplary, with the knob bing positioned right where your hand lays. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review

2010 2dr Hatch turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The Turbo Inline 4 in the GTI is an incredibly smooth and responsive engine with a lot of torque all the way across the power band, always leaving the driver with that added punch and acceleration when needed. A blast to drive! Excellent 6 speed manual. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review
2010 4dr Hatch turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
I love the diesel engine. Its torque is amazing. It pulls strong from 1400rpm to 4500rpm. You never need to downshift to pass on the highway, because at 65mph in 6th gear it's right at the peak torque. The transmission is also smooth and has great gearing for fuel economy and performance. It's doing less than 2000rpm at 70mph, but still accelerates effortlessly. It's also quiet and smooth. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review

6-speed manual FWD
The 2.0L turbo is a peppy thing in the GTI. The torque curve peaks out early and the lack of really noticeable turbo lag makes for a fairly fun motor, even if it does seem underpowered compared to other hot hatches in the segment. In VW's quest for cabin comfort, there isn't the same engine note you'll hear from other raspy 4-bangers, but the tradeoff is worth it I think. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review
2010 2dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Even the base 2.5L engine has more than enough power at 170 hp, very good engine torque. Put the auto trans into S mode and the car flies. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review

The regular Continental all season tires are pretty unimpressive. They have reasonable handling and road feel, but are barely better than summer tires when the temperatures drop below 40 degrees. I have been very impressed with my General Altimax Arctic winter tires though. I plan to get a good set of summer performance tires soon, which is what this car should have come with. see full Volkswagen Jetta / Golf / GTI review
