2012 Volkswagen GLI Autobahn PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have owned several performance sedans through the years including a current generation Nissan Maxima SV with sport package, 07 'Civic SI, 05' Subaru Legacy GT Limited, Mazdaspeed 6.
I was able to grab this 12' GLI Autobahn for $23500 which is a steal honestly for what you get.
Coming from my SI, the GLI has way more torque and much better gas mileage while having equal handling, but with better interior materials.
I average 29mpg in mixed driving and on straight freeway trips usually see 34-35mpg and as high as 37mpg.
Had the APR stage 1 ECU update done and the car is a rocket now without even a dent in gas mileage.
Some interior plastics could be better but overall a great car!
