Drivability, quality and simplicity in the cabin. I'm sold on VW/Audi for best driving cars with simple, no nonsense dashboards and quality materials - all for a reasonable price with no repair sticker shock. Yeah, they cost a few dollars more, but they're worth every penny. Not quite a BMW (owned a 325 conv), but not that expensive either, and repairs are far, far cheaper. I own a GTI which I like even better. If you can handle it, reach for the Tiguan with the suspension options (for even bigger grins).
It's fun to drive, it's economical, and it's pure German engineering.

Love the comfort, love the ease of maneuvering in traffic. Found overall cargo space a little smaller than I thought-still needed to buy a bike rack for my bike. Lights and mirrors are great for older eyes and heavy traffic,parking. Would love to have a slightly wider view from the driver's window-if not adjusted just right, there is still a small blind spot. Gas mileage and price of gas is the only thing that would make me thing twice about purchasing again-requires 91 or > Octane and gets more like 18-19 miles /gl in town, only about 24 on the road and that is on cruise so I do think twice about just driving around with gas prices where they are now. Love to drive the car- it is "Just fun to drive!" I feel like the Roadrunner-MEEP MEEP!
