GTI named to CD’s 10Best Cars list again

The 2010 MkVI GTI continues to draw accolades. Fresh off its Automobile Magazine 2010 Automobile of the Year award, the latest GTI landed on Car and Driver’s 2010 10Best Cars list. Not that we’re surprised- the penultimate MkV made the list in 2009, 2008, and 2007.

We hate to pile on, but they really are great little cars- sporty, practical, and perfect for these times. With a few bolt-on modifications (things we would do to most cars anyway, like brake, suspension, and tire upgrades), they can be a bona fide track and backroads scalpel. Feel like leaving it alone? They’re still great as is, right out of the box.

GTIs – past and present – have always been one of our favorites (just take a look around this blog), and they only seem to be getting better with time. Sure, we’re biased (given that we own and have owned these cars), but like we’ve said, we still think one would be hard-pressed to find a better German car with four doors at the GTI’s budget-friendly price point.
