ReviewGerman engineering. Luxurious interior, especially with leather trim. Controlled ride and comfortable seats make long-distance driving a pleasure. Ample power for even the most performance-oriented driver. Incredible gains possible with relatively inexpensive mods. Distinctive styling. Beautiful indigo instrument illumination. Availability of Tiptronic automatic for those who don't like stick. Many safety features.
Best FeaturesIncredible value. Everything about the car exudes class, quality and refinement. Basically, you're getting the features, quality, and performance of a $30,000+ European sport sedan for $20K. Fun to drive but practical and comfortable for commuting and long-haul travel.
Worst FeaturesCupholders block almost all stereo controls when in use. Maybe premium Monsoon stereo could be a bit better. N.B. If you get the 1.8T, be sure to get the optional 17" alloy wheels (standard on the VR6).
