Yes that is silly money due to that engine only available with 4 wheel drive and the dsg auto gear box. Why?
I would have liked that engine but with manual and fwd. Hopefully the 1.5 engine will have enough poke after me being used to a Gti
Yes silly money. I to would have liked the 2ltr and fwd. With the cheap plastic dash and yucky materials inside and the price, its looking like a pig in a poke. Don't think you will get used to the 1.5 ltr with 150bhp after 230 bhp in the GTI. I drive a cooper S with 190 bhp and when I have a go in the wife's A3 with the 1.4 its sloooow. Will go and have a look at it next week but I think with the engine combinations VW has hit the goalposts with this one. Hopefully they will sort it with the R-Line.
