Although several carmakers now offer a hot hatch in their lineup, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is definitely the most iconic. With us now for over 30 years, the little GTI is almost a legend in the automotive world. This Volkswagen still offers the best balance between sports car and family hauler. Under its hood sits a 2.0-litre turbo four that sends the power to the front wheels. Two transmissions are offered: a six-speed manual and a dual-clutch, six-speed automatic, similar to the one found in a Porsche 911. Thanks to this technology, the Golf GTI accelerates from 0-100 km/h in only 5.9 seconds.
