2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Lincoln, NE
They call it the hot hatch because it’s loaded with performance and style to go with its hatchback versatility. Driving fun comes first though, with 210 horsepower and sport suspension plus driving mode selection. Aggressive looks and 18-inch alloy wheels complete the package. Once you get beyond the GTI-ness of it, you realize it’s also immensely practical. Fold down the 60/40-split rear seats and secure the adjustable cargo floor, and you’re working with 52.7 cubic feet of space to haul whatever you need to move. Fold the seats back up and it seats five adults quite comfortably.
A lot of the GTI’s charm comes from unique features that are exclusive to this model. The iconic Clark plaid seats are our favorite, along with the optional golf ball shift knob. Others include the ambient interior accent lighting and available panoramic sunroof. One new feature that we know you’ll like for 2016 is the MIB II infotainment system. It’s got a USB port and a big touchscreen to let you use the VW Car-Net App-Connect features. That means you can plug in your smartphone and use your favorite apps right in the dash.

Another new trick up the GTI’s sleeve for 2016 is the standard rearview camera. It folds out from the VW logo on the back of the car to give you eyes in the back of your head. It makes the GTI even safer and more maneuverable in tight spaces and when backing up. Other new technology is working behind the scenes to keep you safe.
