A sprint down the sinewy side roads of coastal Provence illustrates why Volkswagen has sold 1.7 million GTIs. Wonderfully balanced, this car loves to be driven with verve. Although purists still enjoy a brisk workout with the manual 6-speed, the DSG really makes this hatch haul.
Its 6.3-second 0-60 time and its electronically limited 129-mph top speed are about the same as last year’s, but compared with the previous model, the latest GTI just looks right. And it sounds great too, thanks to a so-called “sound pipe” that channels engine sound into the passenger compartment.
