    At first glance, if you viewed the original Jetta you would have insisted it was nothing more than a Rabbit with a trunk slapped on the back of the car. In reality, it was. Not until 1985 when the second generation Jetta came out, did Volkswagen attempt to separate the two models to create distinct model lines. Although some base engine offerings remained the same, the new Jetta was longer and wider than the predecessor, enabling it to be categorized as a mid-size car. Indeed, the Jetta was so popular in the North American market that it easily outsold the Rabbit for many years. Today, the Jetta shares some components with the larger Passat instead of the smaller Volkswagen EOS.

    Powered by a 200 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder, the GTI is an absolute rush to drive. Rocketing the driver from 0-60 miles per hour in just over six seconds, the GTI's greatest strength is its ability to give any driver a grin that will remain for hours. With peak horsepower being felt at a screaming 5100 RPM, drivers can pin down the throttle and enjoy the throaty but refined exhaust note. This car wasn't designed to be a quiet and smooth highway cruiser; no, it was designed to be fast and fun to drive, and the 2010 VW GTI doesn't fail in that goal. For those concerned about the passing ability of a car that only has four cylinders, fear not: This 2.0 liter turbo makes 207 foot-pounds of torque, which is more than enough to accelerate the 3100 pound hot hatch from any speed in most gears. Even better is the fact that the GTI makes peak torque at a lazy 1800 RPM, and retains all of its 207 foot-pounds all the way to 5000 RPM. For drivers who want a more understated driving experience, this ensures that you don't have to pin down the throttle to have fun.

    The GTI's 2.0 liter 4-cylinder is a godsend to those who want excellent performance with solid fuel economy. The GTI is actually more efficient than its lower-performance cousin, the VW Golf. With 21 mpg city / 31 mpg highway, the GTI does it all.
