Volkswagen has introduced the latest version of the GTI at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2013. For the first time, the iconic hot hatch is available at launch with two power levels: 200 horsepower; or 230 hp with the optional performance pack. However, the 230 hp version will not be available in the US.

The 2014 GTI is powered by a turbocharged direct-injection gasoline engine (TSI) that makes 200 hp and 207 pound-feet of torque. The car is equipped with a Stop-Start system and attains the mileage figure of 21 mpg in the city and 31 mph on the highway, when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. This means that the new GTI offers an 18 percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the previous model.

The sporty nature of the 2014 GTI is reflected in its red-painted brake calipers, twin chrome tailpipes, and a lowered sport suspension. The exterior of the compact hatchback also scores with 18-inch wheels and 225/40 tires, special side skirts, a rear diffuser, and smoked LED taillights with LED license-plate illumination.

Visually, the interior is highlighted by sport seats with the "Clark" tartan pattern, a black headliner, and red ambient lighting. The car also offers classic GTI features such as a sport steering wheel, GTI shifter knob grip and instrument cluster, special trim inserts, and stainless-steel pedals and foot support.

Standard features include the progressive steering system; "Climatronic" automatic climate control; park assist; Volkswagen's latest touchscreen infotainment system; and a winter pack that includes heatable front seats. Customers can choose from three body colors: "Tornado Red", "Black" and "Pure White".
