  • Pricing announced for VW GTI
  • A new generation on the way
  • Now in three trim levels

The 2015 Volkswagen GTI comes at a price, which has just recently been announced by the company: A 2-door base model S starts at $25,215 including destination charges.

The 2015 Golf is the first model year of the bigger, lighter and more fuel-efficient seventh generation, due in the United States this June. The Golf is one of the best-selling compact cars in the world, and every iteration of the GTI has been desirable.

The new price is a minor hike of just $195 over the outgoing model, which more than pays for the extra equipment and minor uptick in power. The newest version of the GTI's 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine makes 210 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. That's 10 more hp and 51 more lb-ft than before.

The 2015 Volkswagen GTI S comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, LED fog lamps, Bluetooth, Sirius Satellite Radio, a touchscreen radio, an iPod connection, VW Car-Net connected services and LED cabin lighting, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel, hand-brake lever and shift knob. VW Car-Net has some smart features such as preset cabin-temperature control, remote locking, parking-spot memory and personal driving data.

For $995, a lighting package incorporates adaptive bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights. A driver-assistance package brings a front-collision warning system and rear parking sensors for $695. It's an extra $1,100 for the 6-speed DSG double-clutch automated manual transmission, but that really is money well spent, offering the best of both worlds.

Some buyers might want to wait until later in the model year, when a performance package becomes available. This involves another 10 hp, uprated brakes and a torque-sensing electronic limited-slip differential for $1,495.

The 2015 Volkswagen GTI SE trim level starts at $28,215 (two doors, manual transmission) and adds a power tilt-and-slide sunroof, keyless entry, a rearview camera, automatic headlights, leather seating surfaces, and a Fender-branded (but actually made by Panasonic) audio system. The optional performance package for this trim level also comes with an adaptive suspension, offered for the first time in the U.S., for an extra $800.

The 2015 Volkswagen GTI Autobahn comes as a 4-door model only, starting at $30,415 with the manual transmission. Additional goodies include navigation, automatic air conditioning and a 12-way power adjustable driver's seat.

What it means to you: Affordable pricing and accessible performance has turned the GTI into an iconic car.
