What’s New for ’07

  • The redesigned model is offered in a 4-door hatchback configuration for the first time, both based on the all-new Rabbit.
  • At 101.5 ins. (2,578 mm), the wheelbase is 2.6 ins. (66.0 mm) longer than that of the prior model.
  • A unique grille, dark headlamp surrounds and special side sills help distinguish the GTI form the Rabbit.
  • As a running change during the course of the year, the optional 6-speed automated manual transmission gets a launch-control feature that allows the engine to rev slightly on takeoff, creating some controlled wheel spin.
  • The revised multi-link rear suspension utilizes separate spring and shock mounts to reduce intrusion into the cargo area, while improving ride and handling.
  • More-direct steering and reduced body roll are the result of changes to the front suspension design.
  • Standard safety features include front side-impact and curtain side airbags.
  • The standard audio system includes a 6-disc CD/MP3 player and Sirius satellite radio capability.
