2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Bought a black 4-door Rabbit for my son the other day. We now have 3 VWs and an old Audi in the family. They're great cars. This car rides well. Power is more than adequate from the 170 hp motor. It even sounds good. Handling is good. Tiptronic is the tranmission (not the engine) and the 6 sp. auto is is very nice. It even has a sport mode. This car is not nearly as sporty as my GTI, but is a better freeway car by far and is easy to drive with the auto. trans. Black looks great and there is extra tint on the windows so it looks like a mini-limo to me - very cool.
Versatility of the hatchback, interior design and features, including fold-flat front passenger seat, sunroof and iPod adapter (options), seat heaters (standard) and many more.
Upgrade standard wheels to alloys. That's about it.
