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.
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.
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.
