It's not a great car to drive spiritedly. Lacking feedback and involvement, with a poor turn in. This is the same as every Haldex car (including the RS3 which has similar handling defficiencies), although VW seem to have done better than Audi with their standard damping set up to offset that. It is an all round nice family package with enough doors, that's well built, nice to look at with good straight line speed. That's why I'm getting another one, certainly not for the way it goes round a corner. Mine is cheap, no options saloon, great deal. I'm hoping back to basics improves the experience, but if not then I've got a point and squirt car that's capable with realistic and realigned expectations compared to previously.
