What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2015 Volkswagen Golf / GTI

2015 Volkswagen Golf / GTI Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr Hatch turbocharged 150hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
The console is really wide and impinges on the space where my right leg belongs. Since when do front wheel drive cars need a large console? They only really make sense as covers for the transmission tunnels on rear wheel drive cars.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2015 Volkswagen Golf / GTI

2015 Volkswagen Golf / GTI Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr Hatch turbocharged 150hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
Great shifter. Engine is torque-free, but has adequate power if you keep the revs up a bit. Left me wanting more, but I could live with it.
2015 Volkswagen Golf / GTI Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr Hatch turbocharged 150hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
Would like more power, but you can't have the other equipment I wanted (upgraded stereo, cloth seats, alloy wheels, hatchback) with the 2.5L engine.
