2015 Volkswagen GTIPaul Stoshak - Cherry Hill, NJ03/02/2016
I have driven every sport compact made and the GTI tops them all. It's amazingly comfortable for long road trips, at 6'5" I still have plenty of room and a child seat can still fit behind me. The seats are amazing and I have no issues for hours behind the wheel, the seat heaters are great and go all the way up the backrest unlike most Japanese and American cars that just do the seat bottom. Interior quality is seriously Audi quality, light years ahead of others in this class. The best thing by far about the GTI though is the power and handling... this engine is massively underrated by VW, actual power figures verified by me taking a trip to the dyno put this car at around 250HP and 280TQ. at the crank.
The perfect car for an enthusiast who needs space
2015 Volkswagen GTIMatt Geiszler - San Diego, CA12/14/2015
This car does everything well and is a ton of fun to drive.I've had it for four months and I still get a huge grin on my face when I drive it. You can easily gobble up miles in comfort on the freeway with it's super supportive seats and great infotainment system, or you can kick in sport mode and carve up a twisty road. I smoked several BMW's and a Cooper S on some back roads right after I got this and the car didn't even break a sweat. The Fender sound system is excellent and the integrations with your phone mean you never have to take your eyes off the road. My only complaint is the low-profile tires. This is the first car I've had with them, and it's super easy to curb your rims if you're not really careful. But well worth it.
LOVE this car
2012 Volkswagen GTIBeth J - Las Vegas, NV04/22/2017
This car is perfect for me. It gets great gas mileage. It's really fun to drive! It has everything I want, Bluetooth, sunroof, heated seats. And I love the design, clean and sharp, no unnecessary details, and has a lot more room than I expected in a 2 door hatchback.
