    40% picked manual in US. So it make sense.

    I assume sunroof return since e-Golf is no more. That's their excuse on skipping it on certification last gen.

    Nice exhaust pipes.

    Overall not bad. I'm unsure of that Toyota Corolla looking front grill, but otherwise everything else looks pretty "Golf-like". Passive design, nothing too crazy. Should be able to sell quite a few units like the current gen.

    I like it, but who are they trying to fool with those exhaust tips. You don't need 4.

    One per cylinder.

    Keep in mind this is from the same people who put speakers in exhaust systems.

    I'm waiting for a hot hatch under $60k that will make me want to sell my FoRS.

    Nothing yet, it seems.

    This is my biggest objection. I like buttons and knobs.

    Exterior wise, the front grill is awful (although, not AS BAD as the GTI). And for the rest, I don't see any lines that improve on the mk7.5. (but I'm biased)

    I'll be keeping my mk7.5R. And if I want more power, I'll just get the stage 1 + DSG flashes.

    Looks pretty sweet. Awesome they have torque vectoring diff, although unfortunate it doesn't have a little more power. Very unfortunate they ditched actual buttons and knobs; that has to be one of my biggest pet peeves about where car design is headed. Idgaf about sunroof, or MT... I never use the sunroof, and my wife can't drive manual.

    Overall though, would make an awesome DD.

    Looks the same as last gen to me. Glad to see angry little hatchbacks like this still being made though. And with the three pedal option.

    More sporty styling makes it look less derpy. Nice power upgrade and diff, nice wheels and bigger brakes. Lack of buttons and knobs though
    Probably would be interested but will likely stick with my 7.5 for the foreseeable future.

    Time for a new GF, you don’t need that negativity in life.

    On topic of the lack of analog knobs, I wonder how much of that can be controlled via the buttons on the wheel.
    At least in consolation.

    She’s more open to something like a ISF or automatic CTS-V though.

    I’m not a fan of the look but like that they added the sunroof back. That will push the cost into the 50’s I bet.
    I hated the 6spd in my mk7, clutch had no feel. I want to see when the performance electric vw comes out, that has me interested.
