In a decidedly non-surprise the folks over at AutoWeek seem to really enjoy the new generation VW GTI. The tough test trip from Germany to Paris in pre-production models allowed the AutoWeekers to find out what worked, suspension, 200 horsepower engine, nice brakes and what didn't, very little. It's just one more reason we'll keep holding our breath until next fall when the GTI hits U.S.

Engine: 2.0-liter, 200-hp, 207-lb-ft turbocharged I4; fwd, six-speed manual
