If you are in the market for a compact hatchback that has a sporty vibe to it, consider the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI. This nifty little car has received major upgrades in cabin technology including an all-new infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. It’s ideal for everyday driving.
The Golf has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood that produces 210 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. The four-door model is equipped with a six-speed automated manual DSG transmission, which allows it to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds.
The base S trim level looks great on the outside with 18-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. The interior is quite stylish as well with heated seats wrapped in plaid cloth upholstery. Bluetooth connectivity allows for smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for making calls hands-free. Passengers can even charge their mobile device using the USB port.
According to Edmunds, this spunky vehicle scored a perfect five-out-of-five star rating in government crash tests.
