Fun / economical. In S mode - 1.8 Turbo really provides a kick. When it spools up it really feels like it has another 30-40 hp. VW dealer was great recently, and did a software update and it now shifts smoother than ever. Lots of backseat room and trunk room, easy to drive and park and lots more engaged driving experience compared to a civic sedan.
Fantastic performance and fuel economy in a car with plenty of room for 4 people. That 1.8 TSI Engine is awesome. I just drove a rental model back from Reno and in 205 miles averaging 77mph it got 41.4MPG according to the computer. Driving the car for over 500 miles in a week I have used 35 bucks worth of gas. Thats 1/4 of a 14.5 gallon tank to drive over 200 miles. Thats just mind boggling. Do the math. Its rare to have a car that exceeds the predicted MPG, while driving at 80 + with your foot in it.
I am not too familiar with German cars, I noticed this car takes a long time (more than 15 min) for the A/C to get cold. Then it does blows cold. In Miami, this is critical. My other vehicles don't do that. No matter how hot is outside. It spends a lot of gas for a compact vehicle. We just have it for a short time, My daughter drives it, I need to get organized to take it to the dealers for a check up or some orientation. But I am not as happy as I was when I bought any of my others cars
