Not one of a million SUV’s

Nice styling inside and out but the rear seat legroom is not made for a 6’1 person. Quiet and solid ride. Comfortable front seats. Roomy cargo area. Intuitive controls. Great handling and good acceleration. Just got the car so will have to report back on winter driving characteristics

Great functional car

by K from Portland, OR | April 23, 2019

Over all we love it. I have owned many VW's in my time. I was a bit sad to see them dumb some of the quality down in this model / year. For example the carpet is really cheap, not sure how well it will wear over time. The difference of quality between my 2012 Passat and this is noticeable for sure. However, the usability of the car itself really is great. Kids and great dane fit great.

The best manual wagon you can get... oh wait

This was my first new car purchase and it has been wonderful- approaching a full year of ownership now. Highs - Manual transmission is a joy - Handles well but ride is not jarring - Thus far, reliability has been great - Has handled snow/Maine weather with aplomb. Put snow tires on it and it will blow your mind. - Fuel economy for a four wheel drive vehicle isn't bad, especially not requiring premium - Interior fit and finish is awesome - Big trunk, ski hole is standard - Roof rack works great - Waaaaay cheaper than anything else (Subarus that blow up in your face...) Not plusses - The crummy All-Season (No-Season) tires it came with. Promptly bought new wheels and slapped some 235's on there. Looks 10x better, handles 5x better. Its amazing what a difference it makes. - I'm supporting a lying, cheating, sleezeball company. Oh well- I'll do what it takes for a manual. - Wish it had active safety features. 2019 remedied it. Honestly after five years of winter beaters and DIY repair work all the time it is so nice to have a reliable and comfortable car that I trust. Hope to have it many years to come- or until they announce they are discontinuing the manual and then I'm snapping one up right away.
