2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
This is my wife's car and i want one! She was driving a 2005 Toyota Sienna van, which is great for a big family but not for tooling around LA. This car is really well built - go VW! The paddles on the wheel rock, plus the tiptronic too. It is great to have the hatchback feature. We also looked at the Audi A3 with the same engine, but opted for the GTI.
The exterior, paddles, handling, and how it hugs the road.
