The Volkswagen GTI has been a leader in the American hot hatch category since its introduction in the early 80s. But come mid-2015, it will be available here for the first time in diesel form as the GTD. Four doors, a six-speed manual shifter, a handsome interior, and all the sporty go-fast/stop-fast/turn-fast goodies that underpin the perennial favorite GTI – but powered by a torquey and economical 2.0-liter, oil-burning engine that should return well above 40 miles per gallon.
