2007 Volkswagen GTI Edition 30 2.0 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
Practical performance hatchback icon
Rattle in driver's door.
Leather side bolsters on driver's seat showing signs of wear already.
Great engine, economical for its output, slight turbo lag though.
Great handling, good traction in the wet. A lot of fun on a winding road.
DSG gearbox can take a second or so to engage reverse, then re-engage into D.
Some cheap plastics, but mainly in the lower half of the dashboard.
Ride comfort can be quite firm around town due to 18" alloys and slightly lowered suspension. Check this before you buy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
