This car is best on the highway, where it gets great mileage and the firm seats remain comfortable for the whole trip. But as a city car I'm not so sure. DSG transmission can be annoying. At 30MPH it wants to be in 5th with engine @ 1100 RPMs. You can shift it yourself though. Mileage drops from 45 on the highway to 25 in the city. Nav /radio system has glitches and sound quality is mediocre. Cargo space is really impressive for a car this size.
Diesel engine, panoramic sunroof (which magically lets in light but not heat), durable quality interior materials, lovely paint color, cargo space
A transmission program somewhere between D and Sport mode, leather or cloth as an option (vinyl still smells terrible after a few months). Improve the nav system interface, update the maps, and fix the weird bugs
