2013 Volkswagen GTI Wolfsburg Edition w/ DSG
Simply put, the GTI is a great blend of fun, maturity, practicality, and value. It has yet to disappoint in my 2 years of ownership and has proven to be equally pleasant on the highway (comfortable ride, stable feel, great mileage) and winding back roads (great handling, natural steering feel from an electric rack no less, good power). The hatchback and folding seats add great versatility, and it looks appropriately aggressive without shouting for attention (but plaid seats do get compliments).
I only have three minor complaints about the car...
- Manual headlights in lower trims
- Trip mpg in the heads up display mildly overstates fuel economy
- Manual upshifts are slightly delayed
The GTI is an excellent compromise car: do you have a 2 kids but still want a little performance? Do you need a good commuter, something with decent storage for grocery shopping? The GTI is right at the sweet spot for pragmatic and fun-to-drive... it checks all the boxes, and then some.
You will be amazed!
2013 Volkswagen GTIMatthew - Reno, NV03/20/2015
This vehicle pretty much speaks for itself, it is a combination of the reliability that everyone desires in a vehicle, and the power and drive every driver wants. This car is absolutely enthralling; its powerful, its classy, and most importantly its fun. It gives you everything you need, plus more. There may be more sport wagons out there, but none offer the kind of excitement in such a small package. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.
