We love the driving experience the TDI provides. Bolder front and rear appearance…lines taken from Audi line…nice! Performance is outstanding for the mileage and power. Seats are good with comfortable sitting position.
I’m one of those people whose right leg tends to rest near the center console, but it’s a broad area of contact and not just an edge so it’s comfortable.
Nice clean interior design, good visibility.
Solid body feel, doors, suspension.
The dash design with the chrome accents provides a nice overall look.
Rear twisted bean suspension is fine; smooth controlled ride and quiet interior. Some less refined materials and build quality in interior, but not a show stopper.

Better materials. Our headliner had two places not attached properly and rattled.
Repaired, but insulation in headliner still squeaks.
Less hard plastics like in armrest.
The door armrest is made of molded hard plastics (except where arm rests – softer), but gaps where they come together are notable.
I’m cautious about the hard plastics generating rattles and noise as the car gets older.
Return temperature gauge as it provides trend information before a serious condition develops. Others: blind spot indicator, leather seat option over leathette (retains more heat).
