2012 Volkswagen GLI PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Bought My GLI over the Mini Cooper Clubman "S",
I Love the dynamic stability control (dsc), The DSC Transmission is what "sold Me" and Pushed me toward the GLI, and away from my favorite Car, Mini Cooper "s"..
Who Knew..BUT My Next Two door car will be 2020 John Cooper Works Coupe.
Another reason besides the DSC, is the cargo space I Needed, being a stay-at-home-dad, and the roomy back seat in the four door GLI, and the trunk cargo area....the Mini Clubman can't compare.
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
I wanted and am use to driving a 6 speed, I decide after test driving both, the Automatic dynamic stability control (dsc), is Awesome in Sport Mode, I can't shift the gears this fast.
Add Xenon headlamps, and all wheel drive would be awesome.
