1984 Volkswagen GTI Overview

You wouldn't know it to look at it, but the 1984 Volkswagen GTI is a closet speed demon, first off the line and able to take on more well-known racers like the Mustang with confidence and pride. Powered by a fuel-injected 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder, 90-hp engine and 5-speed manual transmission, it performs so well because of its light weight and a sports-tuned suspension that benefits from Volkswagen craftsmanship.

Inside, though it seats four, it's all about the driver, with supportive seats accented in leatherette to keep you tightly held when blasting around curves, and a well-laid out instrument panel. This 2-door "hot hatch," so named for its European performance body, will set fire to the road without burning up the dollars on gas and maintenance.

It's fast and accelerates quickly, which is why owners love the 1984 GTI. Being a Volkswagen, the engine lasts forever despite constant abuse. Combine that with great fuel economy and an affordable price, and you've got yourself an inexpensive racer. Drivers also say there is very little body roll and the handling is crisp and precise. There were few complaints about the GTI, and many owners keep theirs for years.
