Not Sure What Car Edmunds Reviewed logo 7/6/2015 jleelindsay

My previous cars were WRX STI 2012, WRX 2011, Toyota Matrix 2006, Honda Civic Si 1998 with a couple Trucks thrown in. The GLI has by far been the best car I've owned. Going on 36K miles right now it has been reliable, comfortable, and fun. Coming from the Subaru WRX/STI world I obviously wanted a car with some pep, but mainly was looking for a car that didn't beat the daylights out of me driving around town. Bingo! To me, the performance is very similar to the standard WRX but the ride is infinitely better than both the WRX and STI. The cabin is nice with ample room. Trunk is out of this world. Stock Dunlop tires were garbage. Swapped with Bridgestone Potenza and it's night and day.

Favorite Feature : The ride and performance are great. DSG works exceptionally well. Noise levels inside the cabin are fantastic. Trunk space is amazing.

Suggested Improvement : Stock tires are pretty bad. No grip.

Average Rating : 4.125
