Self Study Program 892503 – The 2006 new GTI

VAG SSP 892503. The new GTI is a fifth generation total redesign of the original “pocket rocket.” Always an incredibly fun car to drive, mating low vehicle weight and precise handling characteristics to a powerful engine package, the new GTI redefines its class.

A new chassis, body and electrical system complement the 2.0L turbocharged 200 hp engine. Best of all, 207 lbs-ft of torque give the new GTI remarkable grunt from the line and in all gears. The optional Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) is a perfect match to the new GTI drivetrain.

To ensure optimum handling and driving characteristics, the new GTI’s static body rigidity is up 80 percent. This increased stiffness results in more direct use of power, greater stability, and enviable handling through corners.

Red painted brake calipers, black honeycomb grille, and a well-appointed interior make this new GTI stand out, not only against the competition, but alongside the GTI legacy of nearly three decades.
