2005 Volkswagen Golf GTI Overview

With the Volkswagen GTI scheduled for a redesign in 2006, VW made no changes to the vehicle for the 2005 model year. It was still available in two popular trim packages. The 1.8T base model was equipped with a turbocharged 180-horsepower, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that was linked to a five-speed manual transmission (a five-speed automatic was optional). Kicking things up a notch was the GTI VR6, which came with a 2.8-liter six-cylinder engine that generated 200 horsepower. It was linked to a six-speed manual transmission.

Standard features included anti-lock brakes, a CD player, air conditioning, power windows, remote power door locks, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering column, keyless remote entry, traction control, and an anti-theft alarm system. Options included a power sunroof, heated front seats, and a CD changer. The VR6 also came with a stability control system, which was optional on the 1.8T. Leather seats, a power sunroof, and a CD changer were among the options.

The GTI's acceleration, handling, styling, and safety features were cited as positive points by drivers. The car was also considered a good value by many drivers, who note that they received good deals on the car, especially with a redesign scheduled for the following year.
