2008 Volkswagen GTI User Reviews
2.0T Coupe shown
- $11,602 - $11,970
- No trim specified for this review
- Best Mix of daily car, performance and handling
- Price tag, seat adjustment
After test driving everything from BMW 335, 135, Mercedes c300, c350, Acura TSX, TL, Honda Civic and Accord EXL, Ford and GM, Nissan Z etc. I must say that GTI is the best mix of fun, performance, pleasure with crazy good DSG gear box, while keeping the small car efficiency. It is the closest thing to the BMW 335 performance without the sticker price. I bought the AuthoBan package, so the price got up to the higher 20K, and would prefer if it was a bit cheaper and in line with the competitors. I find seat hard to adjust at times (check out BMW and Mercedes for the best seats in sports cars) although one gets used to it. Probably the best surprise is the DSG and how smart it is. Car has very good handling, sports car setup, and is very agile even at high speeds. If you are going to spend 22G on Honda Si, don't.
