Compact Sporty Car: Volkswagen GTI

The GTI was the only car to score above average in this category. It's basically a sport-tuned, performance version of the Volkswagen Golf economy car. VW pits it against Japanese compacts like the Honda Civic Si.

Besides driving enjoyment, the GTI scored very well for interior quality. That's always a strong point for VW.
