The GTI it a true pleasure to drive. It is so good in fact that I look forward to my drive to work so that I can get behind the wheel. I seldom take the interstate just so I can play on the backroads. I have a Miata as well and the GTI handles almost as good. It is very flat when cornering, and when the turbo kicks in the car flys out of the turn. Really the only complaints I have are the seats and rougher ride. I believe the ride quality is mainly due to the 18 inch wheels, but the seats are very hard and I feel like the lumbar support is just not right. This is a sports car though, and the seats are designed to hold you in place, which they do very well.
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
I have the 2dr s w/packages. The car is a good all around. Looks stylish sporty outside elegant/luxurious interior. It's pretty much an Audi car with style and personality. Better handling feel than Audi A3,S3,or BMW 3 series. Ride comfort is super great, but you can add up miles like nothing and not notice. Infotaiment system is wonderful no problems at all with connecting apple car play or andriod. Everything is simple and easy to use. Everything is where it should be. Cargo space is great. Two things to note, 1)This car is really refined so IF you're looking for a ''real sport car" this isn't one of them. 2) Wheels and tires, You can really curb rash wheels easily, especially in the city if you're not careful.
