The best hot hatch in its class
Headlamps, Rear Lights, Fog Lamps all have condensation in them.
Radio / CD Player volume increases and decreases randomly.
This car is genuinely rapid with impressive handling.
As standard the interior looks a little sparse.
I have owned this car for the last 5 months and overall I'm very impressed with this model. It an attract car, especially in Onvi Yellow! Acceleration can be fierce, especially 1st to 2nd gear changes, although traction can be a problem if the road is not dry. The Electronic Stability Program which is standard on this model does keep the beast under control, but this can be switched off. I have manage an average fuel consumption of approximately 34mpg which includes mainly short trips with the odd motorway run at the weekend. Being VW parts the car feels solid and hard wearing. Overall I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who is looking for a small performance car with reasonably running costs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
