1. Volkswagen GTI
The GTI has followed pretty much the same formula for success as it did some 30 years ago when the car was launched. Offering a pleasant mixture of turbocharged power and lightweight design, the coolest thing about the GTI has always been that it was a hatchback. In-terms of unique design the GTI stands alone and that’s okay. But Volkswagen has left the GTI largely untouched for the last couple of years. A refresh is due for the compact hot-hatch so that it can remain competitive. Volkswagen relies a lot on the reputation of the GTI line, but in reality, the car needs to be updated as well.
The interior has aged and there are other aspects to the car that make it worth an update. Although there are a lot of fun automobiles on the market, the GTI is one of the most original. But without a major overhaul, the vehicle is going to continue to become an aged feeling. There have been talks that Volkswagen is working on an all-electric version of the GTI, and we have to wonder how well it would perform.
