    Nice shading of the solar panels... morons.

    For VW, I think this is the only viable way to salvage their reputation.

    Thank you kindly.

    Unfortunately, the people at VW USA are to Luddite to ever offer this car across the USA, just like they didn't do with the eGolf.

    They'll be dragged along, kicking and screaming, along with the rest of the industry within the next 5 years. Don't worry.

    That's because it's a compliance car, like so many others.

    I will however get my wife to drive one when they become available next year in Canada. She's a long-time VW fan and has been hinting at wanting to trade her '06 Golf in for something else...

    Their cars are just... so uninspired. For the last 10 years it's like they're not even trying, and the new face lift is horrid.
