    Perfect Jack Of All Trades — This is a beautiful package of a vehicle. Funto drive, stylish, comfortable, efficient, and well built, the GTI consistently surprises. It can handle the turns with ease while comfortably seating 4 full grown adults, and still kick you in the pants with its pep. Don't be quick to judge. It will impress you.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty, fun, stylish, efficient, classy, luxurious

    Cons: Somewhat costly, a little small.

    Great Car! Love Her — Great acceleration, handling, and braking. I have super sporty tires on her so the only negative of the car is when there is snow not much traction. super fun to drive! for the money you get a lot. Interior is by far the nicest of all the cars i was looking at. great gas milage as well even when youre having fun

    Pros: everything

    Cons: snow driving

    Fabulous — The ability to upgrade to APR and not lose the warranty is great! I really enjoy riding this car with the DSG. It lets me go to higher revs. The acceleration on this thing is just great! I love this Car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The DSG is awesome, and the rumble of the engine is enough!

    Cons: Nothing!

    Love My Gti! — I love the stylish look. Just the right size. Fast pick up response. Stereo sounds great. I get 300 miles on a full tank. This is the first car which my dog actually enjoys riding in the back seat. Steering wheel is comfortable, very cool looking and has many controls right at your fingertips including voice automated contact lookup with Bluetooth to my phone which plays my music from also. Sweet!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles corners like a pro.  Love the rear wiper, led lights, heated seats and mirrors. The sturdy feel of this car makes me feel safe.

    Cons: The only thing I wish the car had was a backup camera; other than that, this car is awesome.  Safety feature makes it tricky to drive with two feet (I sometimes press the brake and gas at the same time which causes it to hesitate). Wish there was a USB port for my iPhone; but there is a hookup for an iPod.

    Handling Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 worse.
    "The GTI feels lighter and easier to manipulate through corners than the Mach 1. The Mach 1 has an advantage coming out of the corner with the RWD, but overall I would rather corner hard with the GTI."
    Front Seats Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 worse.
    "Front seats in the Mach 1 were horrible. One of the reasons I sold the car."
    Back Seats Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 worse.
    "Neither has great back seats but the GTI certainly has much better back seats than the Mach 1"
    Would Buy Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 worse.
    "The only thing that the Mach 1 beats the GTI on is the sound of the V8."

    Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring worse.
    "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 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring better.
    "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."
