For the price of a loaded Civic, purchased a loaded Wolfsburg with a far more sophisticated and powerful drivetrain (engine & transmission). The turbo 4cyl and DSG six speed transmission are the same used in the Audi A3, TT, and A4, as well as the VW GTI and GLI.
1. Turbo power (industry award winner - Wards Auto Top Ten Engine of 2008) 2. Possibly world's best auto-manual transmission in the highly acclaimed DSG 3. Salsa Red paint 4. Standard content: satellite radio, 17" alloy wheels, leatherette seats, leather steering wheel, moonroof, heated seats, 2.0T
More adventurous styling, although Salsa Red makes up for conservative looks.
