The GTI uses a 210-hp, 2.0-liter turbo, driving through either a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. We got an impressive 29 mpg overall with our manual-transmission test car. The GTI is fun to drive, with a taut ride that won't beat you up. Handling is very lively, and throttle response is immediate. Inside is a high-quality, quiet, and refined interior with comfortable seats. That all adds up to a sporty car that doesn't wear on your patience during a long drive. The infotainment system includes 3D navigation and an easy-to-use touch screen. With 2016 comes available lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and cross-traffic alert. Reliability of the redesign has been average.
