This is kind of tricky since I owned a 28,000 dollar jetta before this car. It gets pretty good gas millage for have allwheel drive I get 28.1 though 29.0 mpg most of the time but not in winter winter I see about 20-24 mpg I live in Indiana so I see alot of snow. I love the room in this car with a wheel base of 98 I can sure fit alot of cargo with the seats down. I love the sound system I got the 9 speaker premium sound and it pretty good. Note though my jetta had a eight speaker sound system that sound just as good with better bass and had no subwoofer in it. Love the no key start now I hate using other peoples cars. Basically a good car for the 18 thousand.
No key start, Sound system Cargo room All wheel drive 7 year warranty
It need a 5 speed auto would put the mpgs in the mid 30. The glass in the liftgate to have a separete pop up. Also the allwheel drive to have a full lock not one that cuts off at 36 mph. May push out the body a few more inches so you can get the average wheel base to 102 inches
