2nd Mark VI, 3rd GTI

2013 Volkswagen GTI Autobahn 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Had a Mark I for 12 years, base Mark VI for 3 and now this one. Switched from manual to auto and 2 door to four. Great car. Came from a string of BMWs (Z3, Z4, 3 series) and honestly prefer GTI. Especially in Autobahn form. Very Germanic. Solid, well crafted, highly competent. Excellent fuel mileage and very good performance. It's not a rocket and that's fine with me. I love the silence of the cockpit, the Dynaudio sound is great and the telematics work very well. I'm honestly surprised I like the DSG as much as I do, having been in a manual for 35 years. But it truly is a lot of fun, and when in bad traffic, great to have.

Best Features

DSG transmission, engine note, ergonomics.

Worst Features

Nav that allows searching by name for POI, magic spoiler that keeps spray off the rear hatch.
