Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
This car has amazed me it can be comfortable and sporty. the DSG gearbox is the best automatic gearbox i have driven, so smooth and when you want to give it the beans there are no jerky transitions. The SE models cruise control system is great, on long trips you wont have to touch the peddles. The 1.6 TDI engine has the best of both worlds, can drive it like a granny and get 60mpg and then put it in sports mode and redline it. Theres a bit of body roll but its not a GT/GTI model.

What's it like to park?

Living with it

5 out of 5

What's most practical about your car?
The boot size and rear seat space is generous.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The car has a great touch screen media system with DAB, the cruise control system, the DSG gearbox and the mode options EG sports normal eco and custom slot.
