For me, when it comes to driving a smaller car, I used to get nervous - poor performance coupled with inexpensive looks and low-end interiors.
I reluctantly paid the premium for the Golf R Nav 4-Dr.

-4 motion - no tire jump in wet weather
-Styling - it's as fun to look at as drive
-Anticipated resale value though I may have to keep this one
-Never having to use the key to open the door
Move the push button starter to somewhere else, add a full power seat, install a switch for the soundaktor, upgrade to HD radio
