VW Golf GTI: Named as one of Car and Driver’s 10Best cars for 2008

The VW Golf GTI was named as one of Car and Driver’s 10Best cars for 2008. For the fifth time in a row! Impressive.

The GTI is fun to drive, with its high-tech, 200 horsepower 2.0T four- cylinder engine that produces 207 ft.-lbs. of torque, fully independent sports-tuned suspension, aggressive exterior styling, and a practical interior that equally mixes functionality, flair and a driver-first focus and layout.

The 2008 GTI is a solid and aggressive sports model with an available automated manual DSG(TM) transmission that utilizes direct shifting, which automatically depresses clutch-shift points more efficiently and quicker than even a professional driver can. For those driving enthusiasts who want the control of a clutch, the GTI comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission. With all that power and performance, and fuel economy of nearly 30 miles per gallon on the highway, it is easy to see why the GTI is a repeated winner of Car and Driver’s 10Best.
