In Need for Speed: Underground, the Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0L is unlocked by default and can be selected by the player as their first car in Underground Mode. It can be bought for 8,000 in-game cash, making it the cheapest car players can choose from.

The Golf GTI has the slowest acceleration and the lowest top speed out of all starter cars, but makes it up with decent cornering performance. When fully upgraded, the GTI is capable of a high top speed and comes closer to most cars in terms of acceleration.
