This is a very nice car. It is a good blend of sport and comfort in the typical European fashion. It offers lots of nice features as well.
The 2.0T engine is very nice. It has lots of low-end torque and a flexible power band. The DSG transmission is amazing - this coming from a traditional manual transmission driver. The suspension is a good mix of sport and comfort, this car doesn't crash over bumps. The seats are very supportive, yet comfortable.
The steering could provide more feedback. Seat tilt should be something other than the VW "wheel" adjustment. Daytime running lights should have the tailights come on as well. The stereo is pretty nice, but could have just a little more bottom-end.
