    The 320i and C180 I mentioned would have to be second hand (can't afford them new)... so, E90.

    Ignore list ftw.

    On topic....

    My question... If you were in the market, would you go for a new VW (with full maintenance plan to 120 000km) or second hand C180/320i with low mileage and balance of a maintenance plan? Spec for spec they are very similar.

    Would rather go for the C180. you'll see much lower fuel consumption (I like both BMW and Merc btw).
    The new 1.4 turbo engines are really nice though. They deliver enough punch to take you places, but you can't take too much weight though, so it's not a big holiday car.

    This message is hidden because Cool E is on your ignore list.

    Yeah. I got upgraded from a Jazz to a C180 by Avis, earlier this year. Drove it for a week. Very nice car. Fell in love.

    Weight won't be a problem. No family yet... Only 2 of us. Maybe a couple of bikes on the roof. I don't really want to buy second hand. If the Jetta's ride comes close to the C180, I'll take it.

    Haven't driven a Jetta in quite some time, but if it's anything like the Passat's ride, it's nice and firm - quite like the BMW.

    I believe the new Jetta is very good. Will report back when they have one available for a test drive.

    Nothing wrong with the Cruze - probably a better option than the super dull Jetta. However that said you can't compare the Jetta and Cruze to a BMW or Mercedes.

    The Jetta is actually quite good looking... Cruze looks dull and is also horrible to drive, I've heard and read.

    With a few extras, I think you can actually compare the Jetta to a lower end Merc and BMW. Will report back soon.

I've never considered the Golf/Jetta 6, because the only DSG models available here (besides the GTI) were the very under powered 1.6 TDI Golf and Jetta. I see that the 90kW 1.4 TSI DSG models are now available in SA and the Jetta with a couple of extras sounds perfect for me.

    Whats the power output of the 1.4TSI?
    If its 132kw, its flippen quick!! Dont be fooled by the little engine.

    It's only 90kW with single turbo... The Highline model comes with a twin turbo 118kW version of the same engine. The 90kW is quick enough. I'm not looking for a race car.
