The 2006 Volkswagen Golf GTI (Mk5) is the fifth generation model of the Volkswagen Golf GTI hot hatch series. It entered full-scale production in 2004.

Volkswagen equipped the car with a 2.0 litre direct-injected inline-four with minimal turbo lag. This was achieved by its power unfolding, which is similar to that seen from naturally aspirated engines.

The Mk5 Golf GTI was the first model to provide an optional dual-clutch transmission known as DSG (Double Shift Gearbox).

For the 2006 model year, the Mk5 Golf lineup included the R32, a more powerful sporting model with AWD and a six-cylinder engine.
