Its A Dd But Feels Like So Much More. — Yes! I love this car for its torque steer, its under-steer, the noise inside while driving, the ok...mpg, its grin. I love this car for what it is a Hot Hatch. A DD that when you want to can spool up and launch you past the grand ma's and ricers all around you. Its so practical and so much fun. This car makes short trips an adventure and with all that torque every red light is a game of will it spin? This car just makes you want to smile and press on the throttle but if you do not want to that is o.k. too.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: POWER, Torque Steer, Teenage angst, cost, features w/tech pkg., MPG, ride/noise

Cons: My sunglasses make a rattling noise in the above head storage/holder.

Buy Buy Buy — for what it is, the few times i went off road it was fairly good at taking hits, but i feel the stock tires should never leave wet surfaces unless u want to lose traction. the TPMS malfunctions alike all others. amazing seats and cargo space. easily transported 4 full tired rims and a couple boxes/ luggage and a big big person, without fuel economy being effected at all. easy to fit it all in. only problem is the tuning. just to do what i want to do i need to waste 12k on moving parts and changing pieces... its a large financial obstacle when u think about it. otherwise, i couldnt ask for a better tuner hatch. well JDM anyway

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: crush an STI on a roll and hell u can take a porsche too.... well a late model one atleast.

Cons: that smile... the lip has a feeler that scratches on curbs just because it exists... pointless. but atleast u know when u scrape.

Quick nice drive around town. I have only had my Speed3 for about 2 weeks, but I get great power and gas mileage at 32+ highway and about 27-28 average. Very tight steering and a nice turbo in both performance and sound. Blew away all expectations.

Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T Driver's Edition 4-Door FWD better.
"Nice hot hatch for a family car. Looks less like a teenagers car then Focus ST and MazdaSpeed. Smooth drive is great almost always but leads to it being a little soft in the corners. "
Value Ranked 2013 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T Driver's Edition 4-Door FWD worse.
"I dont think you can get more power and fun for the price. Also a good amount of cargo room and back seats fold all the way flat allowing you to load up a bike or other large items easily."
