Consumer Reports let one of their more usual unusual editors test the next generation Golf GTI, and that's because Gabe Shenhar owned two GTI and loves them. You can really tell too, from the fact that he calls it a more affordable BMW 3 Series. He actually has a point: leather seats, DSG twin-clutch auto, and almost as much power as the 328i.

The next GTI should be launched in America next summer, in July most likely. This European spec car really is a beauty, fully equipped with stuff that might not make it across the pond. Volkswagen USA might clip the adaptive dampers from the standard feature list. In Germany, this GTI starts at about €29,000, and that's without the power pack or the DSG gearbox. In dollars that would be almost $40,000. The real sticker should come close to the current $24,100.
