This car is a REALLY good deal. Got it for about 21k and some change. To me, this is the best car for the money. It has upscale looks and excellent build quality. It doesn't look cheap like other cars in its class. The 200 hp turbocharged engine is a gem, very smooth and extremely powerful. You can't even feel it idling, very unusual for a 4 cylinder. The 6speed DSG automatic has seamless shifts and perfect downshifts. Perfect steering and smooth handling as well.
The engine, solid build quality, smooth and confident steering and handling, intuitive controls, upscale look and feel inside and out.
More logical seat adjustments, automatic headlights, trip computer(avg mpg, etc.) should be standard. AUX input sound quality is TERRIBLE. DSG transmission can be clunky at low speeds. Otherwise, I love the car :)
