The 2007 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T four-door sedan is a sports version of the automaker's popular Rabbit hatchback. The GTI is powered by a turbocharged, direct-fuel-injected, intercooled, 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces a respectable 200 horsepower.
A six-speed manual transmission, with a great-looking sports shifter, is standard, while a six-speed automatic Tiptronic transmission, with a special gate for manual shifting, is optional.
Design features of the GTI include a racing-oriented front end, a red-striped grille, angled headlights, a dashing roof line, and horseshoe-patterned alloy wheels... (more about the 2007 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T Coupe)
