    Great Looking Family Car — Super fun ride with the Turbo, good family car, bluetooth is great for music, heated seats are a plus in Colorado, smooth ride, small cargo space, uses premium fuel (yikes), but good gas mileage, all in all a really great car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks, interior, bluetooth, handling

    Cons: premium gas...

    Power And Handling Are Excellent! — My wife drives this car and she loves it. We use to own a 2009 VW Tiguan but my wife was in a very bad accident. The car was totaled. We went back to the dealer and purchased the exact car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent power with some modification done by Reza at Bugsville Service Center in Northridge.

    Cons: Factory power is sluggish.  Once the ECU is upgraded with Neuspeed technology and cold air intake the car is flawless.

    Sporty Small Suv — Handling is very good, typical German engineering. Braking is nice too, I get 23mpg when driving in the city. Maintenance is minimal, 1st oil change at 10k, second recommended at 20k. Heated leather seat in the front are a good plus.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome engine, 2.0TSI has good power, and mpg is very good

    Cons: It is very rough on interstate highways where the joints aren't great. Not sure if this is just the ultra low profile tires combined with a very short wheelbase...or?

    Awesome Compact Suv — This has to be one of the top compact SUV's made. Great ride, nice zip in the acceleration and very attractive design! Nice solid German manufacturing feel. Average 22 mpg to and from work which is 1/2 freeway and 1/2 surface streets.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fantastic looks, great acceleration, solid German feel and ride.

    Cons: None really. I just decided I want a sedan after years of SUV's.

    Sharp Compact Suv. Plenty Available. Probably Not Large Enough For A Growing Family. By NeilEng
