Traded in an '07 tC and am delighted with similar performance but much more utility. Is more pleasant to drive and has a good ride quality balance - compliant enough in corners and over bumps, but not too stiff. Tons of room inside was a big reason for buying. Does everything we need it to do well, though I would always like to see better fuel mileage.
For the money, there are a lot of standard features, like trip computer, steering wheel mounted stereo controls, and iPod integration. The storage shelf under the back seat is useful
A 6th gear for higher economy on the highway would be nice; I'm not a fan of the digital speedometer; Built in roof rails for mounting a rack would be nice.
