The Transit's are pretty neat. My uncle was looking for one as work vehicle. So there was one local and I drove it and really liked it. I could see it as a daily no problem. They are small and drive much like a car.
The hyundai interface definitely looks more straightforward vs the VW. (Mk 8 is doesn’t move my needle at all)Yes, but that's something the MK8 also shares.
And the screens on the Santa Cruz look more straight forward than those on the MK8.
I've got a harder time forgiving non physical controls on a car that's supposed to be more performance focused.
It appears that here in the states, one can get the 2.5 with all wheel drive optioned on the SEL model.The hyundai interface definitely looks more straightforward vs the VW. (Mk 8 is doesn’t move my needle at all)
I’m assuming the 2.5T is a foregone conclusion, but I‘ve read that their top model will go over $40k.
Was looking at tunes for Hyundai the other day. Looks like you swap out the ECU, no flashes.
If you want Santa Cruz get the engine with turbo. The small one will be slow. Even the stronger engine will likely not match the feel of a GTI.
Big man in a little truck!
This guy does a good job.
different cars for different things:I've been in this GTI for 6 years now, which is a personal record for me.
Truth is, I would keep the GTI - if/when the time comes I go for a Santa Cruz.
But then I ask myself: Why pay to insure two vehicles?
Why take up the garage and driveway space?
The very reason I would get out of the GTI for the Santa Cruz is because it isn't a truck.cute but those aren't trucks, if thats the option , there's no reason to get out of the GTI
I've got the room - a very large driveway, but with my son's (19 year old twins) recently getting cars there's a bit of juggling them around at times to get in and out.different cars for different things:
GTI for DD
Tacoma for truck things
Comet for Sunday picnics and cool.
I have room for cars/parking which I know can be a factor for people.
if you keep GTI and get SUV turning GTI into race car would be fun. I prefer small, reasonably fun DD which is why I really like the GTI
Twin boys eh - that must be awesome - like a mini militia.I've got the room - a very large driveway, but with my son's (19 year old twins) recently getting cars there's a bit of juggling them around at times to get in and out.
If the GTI were a two seat open top car, or some wild muscle car that beckoned some getaway weekend driver experience - I'd be more inclined to want to keep it. Perhaps if I lived around great twisty, mountain roads with no one else around.
But I just don't see the too many times where I'd take it out.
