- more masculine looks than most hatches, its a 3 door, can carry bike in back, comes in coupe
- center of gravity seems high, R32 has seats you want
I test drove the GTI and I though my Honda with OEM rims and after market tires could out handle this car. Also, the car seems less stable b/c of it's higher profile. Also, the R32 has the seats I want but the price on the 32 is way too high...It's a VW guys. Lastly, the car could use a little more trim detail (and I don't mean chrome - yuck). I mean the car reminds me of what kids drove in high school or college. It could use a little sophistication.
The demo for this car is changing - 20 and 30 somethings are having 0 or fewer kids so we don't need large cars or 4 doors, parking in cities is tough so we need smaller profile cars that still fit a 6'2" guy, we also want to be active and put a road bike in the back, gas mileage is key too. Options like AWD on the 32 are great. This car is the exception rather than the rule and applaud the co but I would like to see the body style emerge to something a bit less immature at no increase in price. Don't tell me to go buy an Audi 4 door A3 "WAGON" - gag.
