Great car. Not worth it unless you have too much money.

Very fun performance. I say fun because if you've ever had something with power you know one germs used to power. The acceleration is very fun and user-friendly but you will be probably wishing your 40K Canadian bought you more HP after a few months. Handles very well and is extremely forgiving over bumps. I forget that it's a performance car and has the best seats I have sat in. The interior design is great but I can't say I see much improvement or difference from the regular Golf. The website makes it look more sparkly but there isn't much difference. I love the classic sporty exterior design that lasts the test of time. Build quality looks great but time will tell as with reliability too
My VW 2015 4 Dr GTI S model 6MT is my second VW I have owned. Bought a new VW Scirocco in 81 and had for 17 years. After 3 children and other cars in between I am glad to be back in a VW. It is really true you have two cars in one with the GTI. I am gentle on my cars and take good care of them but like to get on the throttle from time to time....this is such a fun car. With the versatile back seats one has a ton of storage room. It can hold everything I need...even from the LARGE Costco trips. The acceleration is phenomenal when you punch it which gives it a big WOW factor. I recommend that everyone at least take a test drive...I am so pleased with the versatility of this car ...a sports car, daily driver, great fuel economy (I have averaged over 32+ over 22k miles), very good sound system (even in this base model), tons of cargo space, and in my opinion a great looking car. I look forward to driving every time I get behind the wheel...which is not the case with many other cars I have owned. Until you test drive you will never know what you may be missing.
