Good all-around combination of sporty handling, luxury, and economy by Steve H, Islamorada FL on 03/16/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen GTI 2-door Autobahn, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I have the autobahn edition, which comes with 19" wheels. I love the acceleration and it corners like it's on rails. I commute 50 miles each way on a stretch of mainly 2 lane, speed limit goes between 45 to 55 and not a lot of stoplights. So most of my miles are highway but at relatively low speeds. I'm very happy to report that I'm getting 34 mpg! Also, the Xenon headlights are awesome. (I'm not so sure the oncoming traffic feels the same way.)
Cons: Lack of storage space in the front seats. The center console has about enough room for a pack of cigarettes. The Nav system is decent, but not great. Same for the "premium" Dynaudio sound system. Yeah, it can play loud, and you can get a lot of clean bass if that's your thing. But it's not as refined as a good Bose or JBL system that has been tuned for a specific car.
Overall review: I've had quicker, better handling cars (Porsche 911), more luxurious cars (Acura Legend), and more economical cars (VW Beetle), but this is a very good blend of the best features of each. I have a fairly long commute and need something reliable and economical, but didn't want to sacrifice handling or luxury to get there. I think I've found exactly what I was looking for. I would buy it again.
