Vehicle2011 Volkswagen GTI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
ReviewTraded in BMW X5 4.8is 2005 and feel this is better in every meaningful way.
Similar room and straight line performance with much better interior (I like cloth seats!) and much nicer handling.
Interior is tighter and better thought out than my recently traded in 2009 M3 and comparable to my new 1 M coupe!
Autostick a concession to being the "3rd car"/wagon so my wife can drive it, but it is really fun in its own way.
I look at the many lame cars out there that people pay more than 25K for and shake my head.
The excuse I guess is that VW only recently started taking build quality seriously.
Best FeaturesQuality feel, look. Nice handling/steering Great seats State of the art autostick Room Great audio/phone integration
Worst FeaturesMore high RPM power; has loads of low down torque, but runs out of breath quickly. Make HID headlights standard again, or at least available as a separate option.
