Overall:

It was not the car, but the dealership. They have not removed the car from your ad, sold it months earlier and never responded to me email. I drove by to see it and nothing. The way that dealership is, I would not buy a car from them at all.

Overall:

This is the most ideal car for the price in most every way. My *ONLY* complaint is that the seat bolstering in the upper back is a bit too prominent as it pushes my shoulders forward in an uncomfortable way. Better seats and this would be a 100% perfect car! Fun to drive, VERY useable space, great layout and controls, good back seats, perfect!

Thanks I have owned Volkswagen brand before and Im a little biased here I love Volkswagens I have driven the automatic I love it I couldnt really find anything wrong with the vehicle except for having more space on the interior of the vehicle and for cargo space as well
vs2018 Honda Civic Touring

  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring worse.
"Hands down the power in Volkswagens a lot of people underestimate them but they are very quick vehicles"
Handling Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring worse.
"I want to see handling hands-down Volkswagen but when it comes to steering and when youre making u-turns I still believe that the civics turning ratio is better but handling quick darts someone darts in front of you a dog God forbid a person itll handle it very well "
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring better.
"I think the look is a bit better then the GTI but not by much"
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring worse.
"I believe that the front seats hug your mid to lower back better and when youre going for long drives or in stop-and-go traffic I believe that it fits you very well youre able to see over the hood of the vehicle"
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring better.
"Lets face it back seats of vehicles are not the most comfortable but I believe Hondas are a little bit comfortable for longer rides than the Volkswagen GTI"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring better.
"Hands down the cargo capacity for any Honda I believe will outdo Volkswagen in general"
Family Car Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring better.
"Just over all the Honda Civic it just feels better as a family vehicle where the Volkswagen GTI feels like it wants to be a family car but its more of a sporty-er vehicle that you could technically turn it into a family vehicle but I believe that the Honda just has an overall feel of a family vehicle"
Value Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring better.
"You cant go wrong with a Honda fixing a Honda would be cheaper than fixing a Volkswagen"
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Honda Civic Touring worse.
"I personally own a Volkswagen and I would keep buying Volkswagens I have had no problems with Volkswagens they get a bad rap because of the media and what they have done with the emissions but overall it is a very great vehicle its fast its nimble it also will get the job done better than the Honda Civic if you like driving boring vehicles on the road then go drive a Honda Civic if you want to put a smile on your face and have fun go get a Volkswagen"

Michael says:
Same car pretty much as the R without the price increase and all wheel drive. Unless you are on a track, this car is more than what you need. It is more practical pricewise for the same basic performance that a normal driver can experience.
