This car really has it all. Pick up (0-60 6 secs), amenities (touch screen radio is top shelf), practicality (hatchback & four doors), handling (XDS), and looks/style. And all this for an excellent price (between $25K- $28K, depending on your options). I really dig the new styling (front and rear are big improvements over the bulbous MkV). I still love the plaid seats and the red stitching gives the interior a very upscale feel. I love the bluetooth (very clear) and the iPod integration is near perfect. There have been a lot of reviews wanting more hp, but with this amount of pick up and midrange torque, I wouldn't care if it had 150, 200 or 250 hp...as long as it drives like this!!
Chiseled style, 18inch Detriots, DSG, acceleration, plaid seats, Bi Xenons w/AFS, touch screen radio, overall solid feel of the car, excellent hwy mileage (30 mpg)
Gas mileage suffers when driven hard (22ish around town)
