I got the 4 door hatchback with the base 2.5 engine.
Like most VWs this is a driver's car.
It's still built in Germany.
Great feel on the road, very comfortable seats and a sophisticated feeling suspension.
Very little road/wind noise.
I have been getting around 27 mpg with mostly hwy driving.
This powertrain has enough pep for my needs while still using regular gas.
There's lots of room with the seats folded down.
VW still has great lease rates if you can negotiate.
Automatic trans with "S" mode stays in gears longer which is great in heavy traffic where you have to accelerate quickly, or going downhill to save brakes.
Feels very solid, comfortable and quiet.
No leather option available for my trim.
Rear seat leg room cramped for adults.
