The 2014 Volkswagen GTI is a perfectly compacted SUV car. Initially, the legendary Volkswagen GTI was debating the first “hot hatch” when VW made driving a compact hatchback enjoyable. Now in its sixth generation, the GTI still lives up to the sporting intentions of the original. The 2014 VW GTI is available as a four-door, 200-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an option of a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) that allows the driver to turn continuously through paddles on the steering wheel or to use the shift lever itself without performing the clutch work.

The 2014 VW GTI has many features such as well-bolstered fabric sports seats with plaid inserts, halogen fog lights, aluminum pedals, SIRIUS satellite radio, 18-inch performance tires on alloy wheels, sports suspension, six airbags, tire pressure control, an 8-speaker touch-screen audio system, Bluetooth, and a multi-function leather steering wheel are included in a detailed list of optional equipment. The GTI overall is unchanged for 2014. The only two trims available are the Wolfsburg Edition and Drivers Edition.

What is the seating capacity?

The 2014 VW GTI has a capacity of five seats. Since there is plenty of head and legroom, front and back-seat passengers can stretch out. There’s still an excess of up to 46 cubic feet of cargo space. Also, the rear seats of the Golf GTI don’t fold flat, so it can be a struggle to load bigger chunks.

Interior Quality

Critics say the 2014 VW GTI has a very well-built interior using high-quality components. They add that the front seats are highly comfortable and welcoming and have a generous head- and legroom for both the front and rear seats. For an upscale compact car, and the cargo space is roomy.

Cargo Space

The 2014 VW GTI has 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 46 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, which is a decent amount of space for the class.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The 2014 Volkswagen GTI comes complete with Bluetooth, satellite radio, an auxiliary input, and an iPod cable. The touch-screen navigation interface is also available but is slow.

Bluetooth with music streaming, a CD player, an AM/FM station, an auxiliary cable, and two outlets are part of the Wolfsburg Edition. A sunroof and a 5-inch touch screen with navigation are fitted to the Driver’s Edition. The Wolfsburg is nicely done, and most drivers are grateful to have it.
