Alternative to the Hybrid.
Pros: Fuel mileage, long warranty, low end torque, comfort, driving dynamics.
Cons: Ugly hubcaps and questionable reliability.
The Golf is a very good value if you look at the features you get, it feels much more solid then the competition and has that great German feel. Read More at Epinions.com

most extras, most fun, for price.
Pros: many extras for price, handling, ride, comfort, very fun to drive.
Cons: not incredibly fast, rumors of oil consumption problems.
Spring for the extra few thousand from a base civic or hyundai. Its worth it for the features and extras that are included. Read More at Epinions.com
