Another One…

November 22, 2005

One more vehicle to add to the six already under consideration as possible replacements for the Protege5:

The Volkswagen Golf GTI

The Golf GTI is very similar to the Jetta GLI that is already in my consideration set, and with good reason – the Jetta is nothing more than a sedan variant of the Golf, and the GLI is nothing more than the GTI treatment applied to a Jetta.

Both cars have the same turbocharged engine, the same available sport seats, the same front clip, the same DSG transmission…you get the idea.  The Golf, however, is a hatchback, and, all things being equal, I prefer hatchbacks.  More utility.

    The Golf is very cute. How’s that for a girly, knows nothing about cars comment? We’ve had a lot of electrical problems with our VW, but we also don’t take very good care of it.
