I guess beggars can be choosers!
I'm surprised that this vehicle is even coming to Canada. We just don't have the market for it. The only way they can afford to bring it to our shores is to build all 500 the same.
Why 4dr? so it can compete with Lancer, STI, WRX.
Why no DSG? I assume cost savings, they have a price point to meet.
In the end who knows maybe this is the trial round for the 2016 R. Depending on sales and demand perhaps next go around we'll get more of a variety.
I swear people forget that VW is trying to make money, not piss it all away trying to make the vortex crowd happy.
In the end, if you don't like it don't buy it!
Now please take your bitching and moaning to the Jetta VI forum. I believe they're still on the topics of hard plastic dashes, and drum brakes.
