Sometimes you just have to grow up. Sometimes, you want to still have fun as a grown up. The gti does just that. With an interior that is on par with cars costing twice as much and a sporting attitude that lets it play with the big boys, it is a near perfect vehicle. Pop in the baby seats and be a family man (or woman), then pop them out and head to the track. The transition is that simple. Throw it into the curves, cruise on the highway, or drive in a really "spirited" manner - it can do it all. Wonderful car for those of us that want some fun, some refinement, and have a real life to live.
Engine provides power throughout Seats are wonderful Loads of space when rear seats are folded down WONDERFUL bang for your buck Best-in-class refinement
Manual transmission could be slightly notchier - but only slightly.
