It is a terrible car

I do not like this car what so ever . This car is so bad I almost fell out the car I would beat up the creater of this vehicle

A LOT of car for the money with tons of features.

a VERY versatile car; comfortable and sporty. Lots of fun to drive it. It has many features that a similarly equipped BMW or Mercedes costs twice the amount. I love how it parks itself, vertically, parallel and on an angle.

Superb Handling and Quiet Car - Worth the Money?

by projman from Milwaukee, WI | December 27, 2019

This was the first time I have ever driven a Golf GTI SE. I took the car on some city streets and also on the highway to get a feel for the car at lower and higher speeds. I have to say I was surprised at how well the car handled, rode, performed, and how quiet it was in the cabin. The seats were supportive and the ride was more supple than I would have expected. This car is a lot of fun to drive and the stereo provides a good sound to go along with the ride. My only negative thoughts about this car are the following: - Manual seats only and no power seats - at this price point? - No lumbar for the driver or passenger seat - didn't need it during test drive but with an SI joint issue I think I'd need it long term. - Manual select shift (in automatic) - engine seems to over-rev when downshifting. - No power sunroof shade - at this price point? Bottom line is that this car impressed me in many ways and I think it is a lot of fun to drive, a great ride, and I could be happy in this car for a daily commute or long haul trip. However, for the money there are other competitors out there that provide more bang for your buck in my opinion.
