There are economy cars, there are
economy cars with sport, then there is
the GTI 1.8T.
This car is a step above the others in
it's class. BMW fit and finish, quiet,
smooth, and options you can't get on
some of the competitors luxury cars,
never mind their "economy" cars.
Need relatively low budget
transportation, but want to feel like
you are riding in a higher class car,
this is a SERIOUS car for you to
Do yourself a favor, spend the extra
grand or two over the competitors cars
in it's class. Or better yet, drive
their under $21,000 cars, then drive a
loaded GTI 1.8T.
