The North American division of Volkswagen decided it was time to officially announce the pricing levels for their 2010 models. Now we will be talking about the pricing levels for the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI . The 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI will get a power lower by 10 horsepower in comparison to the European market model. More precisely, the US market 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI will get its power from a 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged engine that is capable of delivering 280 Nm of torque from 1800 revs per minute to 5000 revs per minute and 200 horsepower at 5100 revs per minute.
With this engine the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI reaches a fuel economy rating of 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The performances of the car are not negligible either. The car manages to reach an electronically limited maximum speed of 209 km/h while being able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. It is important to mention that these numbers are obtained with the six speed manual gearbox.
When the car is equipped with a six speed dual clutch DSG transmission, the performance numbers change slightly. More precisely, the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI manages 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, figures that represent an improvement of 3 mpg in the city and 1 mpg on the highway in comparison to the standard manual six speed transmission. The acceleration is slightly improved too. Thus the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI manages to go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds, a figure that represents an improvement of 0.1 seconds in comparison to the manual six speed transmission.
The European market 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI with a 210 horsepower engine in comparison manages to reach a maximum speed of 238 km/h and manages to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.9 seconds with both the manual and DSG transmissions. At first it might seem that the European version accelerates slightly slower, but the difference of 0.2 seconds is more than surely give by the 2 mph difference.
North American buyers will be able to get their hands on the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI in exchange for a minimum of 23.990 dollars for the two door version with a manual gearbox or 25.690 dollars for the top of the range four door version with DSG transmission.
